Submitter wrote: "These are the drawings of Mohammed that are causing all the stink in Europe. They are not that good really. CNN refused to show them 'out of respect.' Self-censorship in America, a minor victory for the Mullahs, I think."
  • Scoop's note: I don't think CNN would have censored these if they had been offensive to Christians or Buddhists.

Punxsutawney Phil Gitmo-bound
  • As he does every year on February 2, Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his Pennsylvania burrow and sought his shadow. This year, he saw it, meaning six more weeks of winter. Then he saw the multiple shadows of law enforcement personnel, meaning indefinite detention at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
  • "Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow every year since 1999," said Stanley Nichols of the FBI's Lower Mammalian Task Force. "Then we started looking into these other groundhogs, and the same pattern emerged. We got an illegal wiretap, and sure enough, they were plotting to extend winter to influence our oil prices.

The trailer for Stay Alive, a new horror film.
  • After the mysterious, brutal death of an old friend, a group of teenagers find themselves in possession of "Stay Alive," an ultra-realistic 3-D videogame based on the spine-chilling true story of a 17th century noblewoman known as "The Blood Countess." The gamers don't know anything about the game other than they're not supposed to have it... and they're dying to play it. Not able to resist temptation, the group begins to play the grisly game and soon a chilling connection is made - they are each being murdered one-by-one in the same method as the character they played in the game. As the line between the game world and the real world disappears, the group must find a way to defeat the vicious and merciless Blood Countess, all the while trying to... Stay Alive.

The trailer for Find Me Guilty, Sidney Lumet's new movie.
  • "Find Me Guilty" is based on the true story of Giacomo "Jackie Dee" DiNorscio. After years of federal investigation, 20 members of the New Jersey Lucchese crime family are brought to court on 76 charges of various crimes. Already in the midst of serving a 30-year sentence, Jackie is offered an opportunity to shorten his time by testifying against many of his closest friends. But Jackie refuses to betray his "family," and goes so far as to defend himself in what will ultimately become the longest criminal trial of its time.


    At first daunted by the complicated politics of the courtroom, Jackie comfortably takes over the spotlight, insisting "I'm no gangster... I'm a gagster." With his sheer determination and unconditional loyalty, Jackie never fails to surprise even those most skeptical of his intentions. After 21 months, the Lucchese trial became the longest in U.S. criminal history, and has continued to stand out over the years as a unique moment in courtroom history, featuring 20 defendants, 20 defense attorneys, and unusually extensive summations; one defense lawyer's closing statement ran for 5 days alone. At times hilarious and at times deeply serious, the trial and Jackie's subsequent experiences at this crucial moment in the history of criminal prosecution culminated in one of the most shocking and remarkable verdicts in American judicial history.

  • Sounds like a good theme for Lumet, but you may be surprised to hear that the star of the film is Vin Diesel
