Yes, it's true! The eagerly awaited Speed Racer movie, on hiatus for so many months, has gotten the green light to start production! With Johnny Depp as Speed and George W. Bush as Chim-Chim, the "Speed Racer" movie will be directed by Martin Scorsese and is being scheduled for release late 2005.

Time out!

Does this seem kinda trivial? Especially in a week with a new round of attacks in Iraq, impending sovereignty in Iraq, the opening of "Fahrenheit 9/11," Clinton's new book, a Supreme Court decision that upholds Cheney's contention that the government has no responsibility to the people, another videotaped police beating, the president was questioned about the leak that exposed a CIA agent, Cheney's foul mouth on the Senate floor, the UN's refusal to extend US immunity to war crimes charges (maybe we should have made more of an effort to prove that we deserved such an exemption), and a doping scandal among America's track and field elite.

That's how I feel when I check my e-mail and see MSN's top stories. Britney to wed again! Secret marriage of J.Lo! Dating secrets! The latest on "Spider-Man 2"!

Who cares! (But I think I can forgive Britney because she provides Moore with the funniest moment in the "Fahrenheit 9/11" with her perceptive comments on the current political environment. If anybody knows how to get in touch with her, MMC would love to interview her on how she gained such insight into the president's character.)

By the way, the story about the "Speed Racer" movie is true. Except for that part about George W. Bush.
