On the cover of the Rolling Stone
A wonderful film, "Beat The Devil" screenplay by Truman Capote, directed by John Huston with Peter Lorre, Humphrey Bogart, Gina Lollabridgida (a politician in Italy) was about looking for uranium ("yellow cake") in Africa, under the guise of selling vacuum cleaners there, its the only DVD I own. It is an interesting film, I can't recall who originally wrote the story. "Time" was once admittedly "Presbyterian" in focus and they supported Angela Davis' innocence so I think they want to cover this issue as today they were announcing they're the ones Rove told it to! When they started with "cake" story I had to stop and wonder if they were using an "African Queen" scenario, even stealing the "Beat The Devil" plot. Actually, they were had six ways to Sunday by a bogus letter that will leave serious "black mark" on the intelligence community for years to come. Of course then whatever "W" (another interesting film by Hitchcock with Twiggy and the guy from "Battlestar Galactica" she the battered wife) says might be construed as "intelligence".
