After Tiller and Money for Nothing
If you’re looking for food for thought this weekend, these two provocative documentaries delve deep.  After Tiller follows the moral and ethical struggles of four doctors who perform later-term abortions, while Money for Nothing explores the economic situation, the federal reserve, and an analysis of the history of U.S. monetary policy. Whether you agree with them or not, these two are must-sees for the interested mind.
