Bitchiest. Review. Ever

Anthony Lane's review of the movie "The Phantom of the Opera" in thie month's New Yorker is the meanest, most wonderful review I've read. "And so it came about, this week, that I gazed at a black screen and saw words so calamitous that they might have been written in my own blood: `Screenplay by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Joel Schumacher.'"

Staff Sgt Russell Slay, RIP

HoustonChronicle.com - Marine, 100th Texan to fall in Iraq, is laid to rest: In a letter he wrote just before combat to his five year old son in Texas, he said, "'you're the sweetest little man. Be studious, stay in school and stay away from the military. I mean it. Always be a man. If you make mistakes, stand up and say so.'"
