"Thank you for smoking" - now in theatres
« on: May 27, 2006, 11:45:45 PM »
Well, just got back from seeing "Thank you for smoking" with my folks, and it was a very good flick.  For those who haven't heard the premise, the movie follows the life of the lead lobbyist for Big Tobacco, his attempts to do his spin, travels, his relationship with his son, etc.  An excellent satire on the world of big corporation and government.

Who's seen it?  I just wanted to get this out there, to see what people thought...
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
