Well, If VANITY FAIR Says It, It Must Be So.....

Vanity Fair presents its first “Green Issue,” beginning an “increased commitment to reporting on the threat to our precious environment,” says editor Graydon Carter. The May cover features a quartet of eco–power players, capturing Hollywood glamour and activist passion: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Al Gore, Julia Roberts, and George Clooney, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Articles inside address the pressing environmental issues of the day: Mark Hertsgaard reports on the reality of global warming; Michael Shnayerson writes on the Appalachian mountaintop-mining crisis; and a Green Guide offers up 50 simple things you can do in your daily life to help save the planet.

Global warming MUST be real then. Hollywood says it is. And yes, you too can help Save the fifty simple ways.

I'm not feeling particularly Good-Fridayish at the moment, but I'll spare my readership (both of you) the current "make the oceans of the world red with the blood of muslims" mood I'm in (filled with such thoughts as letting Zacharias Moussouai live for many, many years in a cell as the "special friend" of Big Dick McSkinhead, local leader of the Aryan Nations) and stick with 'extraordinary popular delusions and the madness of crowds.' God please forgive me.
