Fox News Pushing "Criminalization of Politics" Talking Point
  • " ... every single television reference to the CIA leak scandal as the “criminalization of politics” in the last 30 days has been on Fox. Even more stunning: on every occasion, the phrase was introduced into the segment by a Fox News anchor or correspondent, never by a guest."
  • Oh, those fair and balanced rapscallions!

No special link here. I just happened to look at the baseball players' cumulative stats at the end of this year, and I just thought I'd remind the skeptics about a point I made long ago: Albert Pujols IS Joe Dimaggio, at least at the plate. The following table shows the first five seasons for both players. You'll have to guess which is which.
  • The comparison is completely apples-to-apples. Both were regulars at the beginning of their rookie years, each was 21 when he appeared in his first game (DiMaggio a couple of months older.) Both are right-handed.
  • What about size? You may think of Pujols as being a much larger man, but he is much slimmer than you think, and DiMaggio is much bigger than you think. Pujols is 6'3" 210, DiMaggio 6'2" 193. I haven't done the math, but I guess that DiMaggio was actually the larger man in proportion to his colleagues!
  • The comparison will last only one more year, after which Pujols will pull far ahead. DiMaggio's sixth year was his legendary 1941 campaign, and Pujols will struggle to match that one, but DiMaggio fell off significantly in 1942, then lost three years to the war, and two more to finding his lost stroke. He would not return to his old form again until 1948. Overall, his first six years are six of his best eight. His candle burnt out rapidly. But how he once did shine.
  • The Info Solutions career projection model predicts that Pujols will finish with nearly 1000 doubles and 830 homers, just shy of 4000 hits! Those are some serious numbers.

Penelope Cruz and Danny DeVito - together at last!. Say, doesn't she always fall in love with her co-stars? This one may prove challenging.

Rob Schneider still in show business. And now he's going to direct. YeSSSSSSSSS! Luckily for us, his time behind the lens will not keep him from starring in the film as well!

Colin Farrell, Scarlett Johansson to revive Borgia dynasty on screen. It will be directed by the guy who did The Crying Game. Scarlett will play Lucrezia Borgia, and Colin will play some rowdy sex-crazed sot with an Irish accent. He's now in the process of intense preparation for the role.

An acclaimed French film director appeared in a Paris court yesterday accused by four young actresses of forcing them to masturbate as part of their screen tests.
  • "She said she did 20 or 30 such tests between 1996 and 2001, some of them with another young hopeful."
  • As President Bush would say, "fool me once, shame on ... um ... well, you can't get fooled thirty times, see."

Bush ratings drop to more new lows in poll. Tough year. He only has a 49% approval rating from Republicans, down from 71% at the start of the year.

Mr. Bean and Patrick Swayze - together at last! The trailer for Keeping Mum
  • "The sleepy English hamlet of Little Wallop is about to receive a rude awakening, as the absent-minded Reverend Walter Goodman (Rowan Atkinson), his dissatisfied wife Gloria (Kristin Scott Thomas), and their two children, Holly and Petey, await the arrival of their new housekeeper, Grace Hawkins (Maggie Smith). Gloria is a woman struggling to cope. Her teenage daughter's a nymphomaniac, her young son's the perennial target for the local bullies, and her marriage to Walter has long-since dwindled into monotony. It's no wonder she's failing to resist the advances of her handsome, American, lothario of a golf pro, Lance (Patrick Swayze). What this family needs is salvation. And fast. It comes in the form of 'Grace Hawkins', a gentle motherly woman with a smile for everyone and an answer for everything. But Grace is not all she seems..."
