Friday Quick-Hits

I saw Snakes on a Plane last night. It was exactly what it should have been. Anything more and I would have been surprised, possibly even disappointed -- the movie is not supposed to be above-average... (I reviewed the experience here.)

Interesting article about Kwame James, the basketball player who helped subdue the Shoe Bomber five years ago and the turns his life has taken before and since then. Highlight of the article for me: the government offers to give James full-time citizenship (he's Canadian / Trinidad-Tobogan) in exchange for testifying against the offender; when the Bomber goes to jail without a trial, the government instead informs James that he may be deported. Whoops!

(Second-favorite fact from the article: read the end to see whom the Shoe Bomber is sharing jail time with!)
