Ok, so it was a little overhyped. But the guy who played the title character was great, and he's a pretty decent dancer, too. And besides, I'm not going to pretend that I didn't enjoy the movie. But I think some of the praise the movie received (Stephen Hunter called the character "one of the most winning movie creations in years", http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A50969-2004Jun17.html) was overstating the case quite a bit. If you have to choose between Dynamite and, say, Sideways, chose the latter.
Tonight's episode of CSI: Miami was pretty decent.
Finally, Time did a poll of Americans and asked them how they felt about the Schiavo business. The responses:
Question 1: Was it right for Congress to intervene in this matter?
Don't Know: 5%
Question 2: Was it right for President Bush to intervene in this matter?
Don't Know: 6%
Question 3 (from the You Can Fool Some Of The People All Of The Time... Dept.): Do you think that Congress's and the President's intervention had more to do with their values and principles or more to do with politics?
Morals & Values: 25%
Question 4: If your member of Congress voted to move the Schiavo case to the federal courts, would this make you more likely to vote for or against him or her?
Doesn't Matter: 18%
Let's hope the people keep their word...

One last thing, then it's off to bed. Just a quick reminder that Maryland's NIT semifinal against South Carolina is tommorow night sometime between 9 and 9:30, the exact tip time depending on the other semifinal, between Memphis and St. Joesph's, which starts at 7:00. Both games will be on ESPN.
Ok, night all. P&L...
