	It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.

	It's so refreshing to be around people from Europe.
	They still drink, smoke, and enjoy themselves.

The August 26 issue of `The Economist', pg. 87, reports statistical
confirmation of something we already knew about Hollywood -- it's
full of idiots.  It seems that 217 agents were send the script of an
existing film.  They were asked to consider it, and were not told
it was the script of an existing movie.  87 of the 217 responded.  Of
those, only four liked it.  41 turned it down.  Eight said it sounded
familiar, but couldn't place it.  Barely a third recognised it.

The film?  Casablanca.
