Saw "CONTACT" last night. Zemeckis out-Gumped himself. Brilliant
cinematography, great story, best performance i have ever seen Jodie Foster
give. Overload of CNN reports make it brush up against the cheese bowl,
and it is a teensy bit predictable, but i walked out of the theatre feeling
that i had just seen a REALLY good movie. Best part - characters that
parody Ralph Reed and Bill Gates. They also get Clinton to speak by
stealing a lot of his vague speeches and making it look like he's talking
about aliens. Very clever. Echoes of Gump, but better. Great film.

I wouldn't mind being known as "the melancholy
guy who drives the red Lamborghini Diablo."
