Wow! I'm the first to comment on this wonderful new blog! I love the Philippine timezone!

Anyway, my comment: Isn't critical thinking a virtue? Shouldn't we all be critical of what we read, watch, and listen to, even if they're "just novels" or "just movies"? Separate the wheat from the chaff and the fact from the fiction, detect lapses of logic, be wary of sensationalism and emotional appeal? It seems as if kids (and adults) are no longer being cautioned to analyze what they read, watch and listen to. In the words of Prof. Diggory in "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", "What do they teach in these schools?"

Oops, sorry. I didn't see that someone already made 3 comments to the first post in this blog. The honor of first person to comment belongs to someone named Owen, not to me. I obviously need a new pair of eyeglasses. :)

Just to add, Bettany is not an albino. It is a truly sad day when an excellent albino actor like Dennis Hurley is thwarted in his efforts to be cast as an Evil Albino Monk. The awful truth of the matter is that Dan Brown's "impeccable research" left no stone unturned... unless of course it was an albino stone. I had a better punch line last night, I just can't remember it. In any event, what really belongs on Dan Brown's "Fact Page" is that albinism is often associated with poor sight making it difficult for Albinos who are interested in the assassination arts. And albinism should not be associated with evil a stereotype perpetuated by... well, by people who perpetuate stereotypes of albinism.
