Jimmy Stewart suffered such extreme PTSD after being a bomber pilot in World War II that he acted out his mental distress during ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. Stewart played George Bailey in the classic movie and channeled his anger and guilt into the scenes where he rages at his family.

I checked with my daughter to see which map-app she liked best. She pointed me in the right direction and I decided to test the app in my hotel room. I entered my destination address, I pushed start – virtual whir whir whir – I got my first voice command and an estimated time of arrival 57 minutes later.
That’s what I needed.
I don’t like to be late. I wanted the time estimate so I knew when…
