Harvard sophomore who wrote novel now accused of plagiarism. Wow. There was a Times piece about the book a few weeks ago. Oops. The Crimson piece I'm linking to is fairly devastating. Wow. (Update: more here, and it also looks like, from Google News, that the AP has a story on it and it's being picked up by lots of newspapers. Looks pretty blatant. Well, that's one way for a 19-year-old Harvard sophomore to screw up her future. Wow.)
I saw the movie "American Dreamz" last night. This Houston Chronicle review pretty much says what I'd say if I was going to write a review, so I'll just link you there. It wasn't terrible, but the satire was pretty shallow -- President Bush played as a moron isn't all that fresh. My friends who I saw it with liked it more than I did. I may have been hoping for too much.
