A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Mini-review: "Adaptation": I finally saw the critically-acclaimed movie on DVD the other night. I concur with the selection of Chris Cooper for the Academy Award for best supporting actor. He did an excellent job as an eccentric orchid thief. Nicholas Cage also did a good job playing dual roles of twin brothers.

I can understand the pain the screenwriter character went through as he was attempting to write his screenplay. I understand it, I just don't want to go through it. The angst was much too much for much too long. It's an interesting film, but not one I'd want to watch again.

Best line of the movie: "Here you go. The killer's a literature professor. He cuts off little chunks from his victims' bodies until they die. He calls himself 'the deconstructionist'."
