If you jumble around "sith," you get....

I'll be ranting on something bible or politics or environment-related tomorrow, but for the time being...

If you are into the release of the latest Star Wars movie (and I am), two things:

This is an interesting article about the parallels of the Star Wars plot and the current state of world politics. And this is a straight-up angry viewpoint - but it's entertaining none-the-less. Not that I go to George Lucas for my political commentary (Mark), but it's still thoughtful.

And, if you read movie reviews, the New Yorker published a hilarious review that completely ripped up the movie. It's funny and well-written, though, so give it 5 of your minutes.

I have also heard the comparisons that most of the star wars characters were modeled after certain political figures over the years. I've heard that Sidious is Bush, and Reagan was Darth Vader. Stupid.

And that guy from the New Yorker is a tool.

Why is he a tool? Because he didn't like the movie?
