Aliens Buzz Chicago

In a suspiciously underreported story, it appears that extraterrestrials were up to some shenanigans at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on November 7th. The following article from yesterday’s Chicago Tribune — which I am reproducing here in its entirety because I fear the Men in Black will make it disappear — describes a “mysterious elliptical-shaped craft” whose curious behavior was witnessed by numerous United Airlines employees.

Will 2007, the 60th anniversary of the Roswell Incident, be the year the aliens finally come out into the open? Probably not. But it’d be cooler if they did.

The Return of Kelly Leak

A young Jackie Earle Haley and (sigh) Tatum O’Neal.

I don’t necessarily want to take credit for the miraculous resurrection of Jackie Earle Haley. But. I would like to point out that I wrote a bit about Haley, more or less at random, back in July 2005. At the time, he was just beginning a comeback that has now become full-blown, with talk of an OscarRRR nomination for his role in Little Children. Probably just a coincidence, but can you say with full 100% confidence that all this would have happened if I hadn’t been moved by my viewing of Breaking Away to wonder what the hell ever happened to J.E.H.? No, you can’t. There are forces at work here larger than Jackie or myself.

For more info about the comeback, check out this article and the accompanying interview on SF Gate.
