US stars align in anti-Iraq war hunger strike

Did Holmes ever say "Elementary, My Dear Watson"?
  • Holmes did say "Elementary" to Watson on one occasion, but never uttered the entire phrase in a Doyle work.
  • As is often the case (with literary characters), this signature phrase apparently originated with a derivative, non-canonical work: In the 1929 film The Return of Sherlock Holmes, written by Basil Dean and Garrett Fort, the renowned Baker Street detective (as portrayed by actor Clive Brook) speaks the line, "Elementary, my dear Watson, elementary."

I love China.com!! Not only do they not understand the use of irony on satire sites, but they refuse to hire anyone who can write in understandable English ... Their classic headline today: Britney Spears is terrifying (They mean "terrified." I think.)

The trailer for Poster Boy
  • Henry Cray is a young gay man who's gone away to college and is enjoying the liberty of coming out, away from his family. The problem is that the boy's father is a powerful, conservative U.S. Senator and around campus the son's homosexuality is a bit of an open secret. Enter 28 year-old gay activist Anthony looking to party, who quickly meets several guys willing to show him a good time -- including Henry. Unaware of Henry's identity, Anthony hooks up with him and spends a fun evening on the floor of the school's darkened gymnasium. When Senator Jack Kray finds himself fighting for his political career in a tight run-off election, he enlists his son against his will to be the "posterboy" for the campaign... but Anthony and Henry may spin the campaign in an unexpected direction.
