    Journos balk at 'Smith' interview restrictions Legal reps for Angelina Jolie gave journos a jolt during the run-up to "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" with a legal agreement that attempted to set new precedent in the already tense relations between celebs and the press. The agreement, faxed to journos from the law firm Sloane, Offer, Webster & Dern, demanded as a condition of an interview with Jolie that journalists agree to not ask any questions about "personal relationships," that the interview "only be used to promote the picture," and, incredibly, that the interview "not be used in a manner that is...

    I believe this is going where vanity stuff should be. Anyway, I was assigned to do a paper on, "who controls the way we think.... which entity plays a key role in forming how society logically interacts" I think it's undeniably the PC crowd. Of course the PC crowd are typically associated with liberals, but how should I go about proving this to the professor that semi-chided me for writing about what a scumbag Clinton is? I dont know if i can go on for four pages about how a stewardess is a flight attendant.

    We’re the laughing stock of the nation (if not the planet) with this AB 2142 from the Ca State Assembly which grants a whole bunch of legal protections to “CROSS-DRESSERS.”…Some guy with a beard, wearing a dress applies for a job at your company..Yikes..Your kids goes to school and the football coach is wearing a gown.

I didnt enter anything that isnt public though. I turned it back in and got ordered to fill the rest out. Of course I politely( since I dont wanna go to ...
