FOX - the terrist info-station!

Such helpful news reporting!
Every once in a while we see an example of the serious consequences that a media mistake can cause. This latest example happened when a Fox pundit identified a home he said belonged to a terrorist. It did belong to the man he named -- three years ago. Now it belongs to a family and they're living a nightmare because of the mistake.

Apparently the address was given live on the air 'to help local police'. Uh-huh..
Well I guess everybody needs a hobby.

'the Beautiful Country' film review

Gary watches movies so you don't have to - the beautiful country doesn't get a rollicking-good review, but some good points (one of which is Nick Nolte oddly enough)keep this film watchable.
While far from unforgettable, The Beautiful Country has enough within its borders to be worth paying a visit.
