To Whom it May Concern:

I am a student froma high school in Oklahoma. I have to do a report over the differences in the movie, "Tears of the Sun" and the actual war. I have looked all over the internet and I can not seem to find what the difference is. If you could help me you will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so very much,
Mona

If by "the actual war" you mean the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, the 800,000 people killed in 100 days can't really compare to the 5 million people whom have lost their moneyto this film to date. However, if we're talking about Bruce Willis' nudity in "Color of Night" didn't even come to 600,000.

Last night, Rob and I went to see Miracle, the movie about the 1980 USA olympic hockey USSR upset thing. Pretty lame movie. Anyway, the thing is, there weren't very many people in the theatre besides Rob, myself, and the entire KU basketball team, including self and coaches. It was surreal, sitting in the same theater as this down-on-its-luck-team, watching an inspirational sports movie.

That is so sad. But the saddest part is that they were actually scouting. Coach Self feels that if they can catch them on an off night, the Jayhawks may be able to defeat the 1980 Olympic hockey team. Time will tell.

I can assure you that:

1. I have never been belligerently drunk
2. I've never creeped out an establishments female patrons
3. I've never needed to be removed from a bar by my band mates or anyone else

I think you may have confused me with Mikey Welsh, who at the time exhibited that sort of behavior, but I'm not sure about that.

Thanks.

Sorry Pat...

Normally our slander is a little better researched. But honestly, your saintly behavior is not very rock and roll, is it? Oh well, neither is Pinkerton.
