Internet meme of the day - questioning whether Dick Cheney is still alive.
  • Whoa! No wonder President Bush has been so unresponsive to this crisis. According to the Constitution, who is supposed to be in charge when the Real President is incapacitated, leaving the Figurehead President directionless.

Geraldo Rivera & Shep Smith pull no punches in this powerful and heartbreaking report from N'awlins. I challenge you to keep a dry eye during this. Geraldo actually broke down in tears on camera, in frustration over the conditions, and Shep really told it straight and hard.

I saw it and I hold them both in contempt. Come on, dude! Both of them are overacting so as to make themselves the STARS of this news!

Let's face it, most news stories are dull, so our attention will be naturally focused on the reporters. This stokes their egos immensely. BUT, with devastation this widespread (and astonishing), the reporters are getting overlooked! And they won't sit still for that!

Send 'em both to Gitmo!

Transporter 2 wins the weekend box office.
  • I'd have to say that the real winner for the weekend was The Constant Gardener, which finished a surprising third (the Warrior had called it fifth), and finished on the very top in revenues per screen. It also garnered some excellent reviews along the way (more than 80% of the reviews were positive).
  • Transporter 2 broke the all-time Labor Day Weekend box office record, and the weekend grosses were actually higher than the results during the same weekend last year.

Incredibly dumb Nazi sabotage attempts on Britain. Exploding chocolates. Fake headlines. This reads like a National Lampoon article, but appears to be for real.

What more could you ask for??!!!

 

Spicoli wipes out!

It's an instant classic. Penn shows up to rescue people, hires a boat. Only three problems. (1) The boat's motor doesn't work (2) The boat leaks (3) The boat is filled with Penn's personal entourage.

  • "The outspoken actor had planned to rescue children waylaid by the deadly waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch. When the boat's motor failed to start, those aboard were forced to paddle themselves down the flooded New Orleans street. With the boat loaded with members of the Oscar-winner's entourage, including his personal photographer, one bystander taunted: 'How are you going to get any people in that thing?'"
  • Here is another version of the story, which reports that the boat sank, and says, "Penn was seen frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup that eventually was not enough."
  • Actors? Sinking ships? Shouldn't Billy Zane be a part of this?

Okay, so he didn't make the most effective effort to help people, but the point is that he tried to help. It's easy to sit back and laugh at someone else without trying yourself.

I was going to go, but my personal photographer called in sick.

good thing George Bush's personal photographer wasn't out sick--or else there still wouldn't be any federal aid for N.O.!
