It's not often I have a visceral, physical reaction to a news story, but I did with this one. And it's not political at all, believe it or not -- just really frickin' gross. Click here to read. It's a couple paragraphs and worth a read. Mmm. "Special taste".
Also, the teaser for Casino Royale, the new Bond movie starring Daniel Craig is online now, and it looks pretty good. The producers of the movie insist they're taking Bond in a new direction, the more dangerous, less blase Bond of the novel, and from the teaser it looks like they're serious. Less fussy, fantastical gadgets and more Bond relying on his wits to kill bad guys. I also like how M suggests in this teaser that Bond's too much of a "thug" and a "blunt instrument" to be a Double-0 agent. The blunt instrument-Bond is one I'd like to see running around the world for a couple hours. In that last shot at the Baccarat (or is it poker now?) table, Craig looks more like a Bond super-villain than Bond himself, which makes him about 50% more interesting than before. Anyway, here's hoping.
