"May I speak to the manager?" and "Quit kicking the back of my chair!" just miss list of most famous movie lines
- The American Film Institute selected "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn!" as moviedom's top line from all-time. It barely nudged out "Make my day," "I coulda been a contender" and "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse." Meanwhile, film customers have also selected their top movie quotes. Finishing No. 1 was "What do you mean a movie ticket is $10?", which squeaked by "You call that popcorn?" and "Wait ... my shoe is stuck to the floor."
- Two more Washington politicians are duking it out for the role of God. Republican John Hostettler of Indiana spoke from the House floor this week and said Democrats are anti-Christian. His comments come in the wake of Democrat Howard Dean's statement that the Republican party is pretty much a "white Christian party." Allow me to throw my hat in the ring and suggest it would seem that neither Hostettler nor Dean appear to really know exactly what a Christian is.
- The antics and foot-in-mouth rampages of all too many politicos nowadays would seem to warrant the elevation of a Gospel passage to fullblown Commandment status: Forgive them, for they know not what they do.
- And believe it or not there are some people suggesting today that Saddam Hussein would make the perfect pitchman for Doritos now that it has been revealed that he blew through a family-sized bag in 10 minutes. Sounds like Saddam has more of a future as a spokesman for gluttony. Too bad the jailed Iraqi dictator doesn't like corn chips: Imagine Saddam as a 21st Century Frito Bandito. Is there a better choice?
