Every year there are at least a few Oscar-prestige movies, usually arriving around Christmastime, that are praised to the skies simply for being adult entertainments. Coyote anvil dropping that there may as well be. In fact, if it were less greasily slick, Vice could have been an awesome Christmas gift to Dick Cheney haters everywhere. But McKay, who also wrote the script, is too taken with his own conceit.
This was an enjoyable read with a few decent statements on modern culture. They were awash in a tide of personal reflection but they were, at least, interesting personal reflections from the creator Quirky theories on the rise of viral culture. Harper's senior editor Wasik is fascinated by how the Internet and handheld wireless devices are changing basic social relationships, particularly the Bill Wasik. Breaking news, fresh gossip, tiny scandals, trumped-up crises-every day we are distracted by a culture that rings our doorbell and runs away. Stories spread wildly and die out in mere days, to be replaced by still more stories with ever shorter life spans.
Vice President Dick Cheney's accidental shooting of a fellow quail hunter in Texas gave new ammunition to television comedians who have long made the powerful, gruff-spoken conservative a target. Fellow politicians, newspaper headline writers, and even the White House - on the defensive over delays in reporting the incident - also got in on the act. Cheney's victim, attorney Harry Whittington, 78, was hit in the face, neck and chest by shotgun pellets in the accident on Saturday. Whittington was in stable condition on Monday, the first day the accident was a subject of widespread media humor, but he suffered a minor heart attack on Tuesday when birdshot migrated close to his heart.
A timely and accessible guide to of the most infamous logical fallacies in Western philosophy, helping readers avoid and detect false assumptions and faulty reasoning.
