I think the cams are great, too. Show both cop abuse, AND protect the cops when they're being wrongly accused as well.

Any of you big book readers ever read Ethan Hawke's Ash Wednesday? I've been trying to read this book(ok, I've been trying to listen to the audio book in the car) and its just grating. I loved Before Sunrise & Before Sunset and those movies had just about no action and were 100% dialog. Just 2 people talking. He and Julie Delpy wrote a great deal of he dialog themselves so I figured he's got a way with words, probbly can write a good book too. Well, this book so far is so heavy on what the characters are THINKING that its just annoying he hell out of me.
J LOVES those movies. There's a 3rd one, too. Haven't read that book though.

THanks for the birthday wishes, all! I just got the coolest flowers from a good friend of mine! They are in a big cosmo glass and they have a big straw in them! So cool!!! No big plans tonight. Out for pizza with my daughter, probably, and she has some gifts for me. My parents are taking us out for a birthday lunch this weekend and I have drinks planned with some friends on Monday.

Oh... Who was it that mentioned the Henrietta Lacks book? I have been reading it and I am almost done. Then I heard on the news last night that the family reached an agreement with the National Inst. of Health about how her cells would be used. Thought that was interesting.

I read about that this morning. Fascinating. Her family has been pretty gracious through it all -- they just wanted mom/grandma to be recognized for what was taken from her without her knowledge. And I have read in the past about the PROFITS that were made off of her cell line.
