I was out at a restaurant last night, and because our economy is cratering (thank you, David Letterman), CNN was playing in the corner. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted the crawl at the bottom of the screen.
"John Cusack will be facing trial after the collapse of a plea bargain."
What? What? Everybody's favorite lovelorn teen, Lloyd Dobler?
The man who made single handedly made "professional puppeteer" a sexy profession?
(Okay, "sexy" might be a bit of an oversell. At least, "verifiably heterosexual?")
I just couldn't believe it.
It took about 20 minutes before the crawl came around again. This time I caught the entire crawl.
"The woman accused of stalking actor. . .John Cusack will be facing trial after the collapse of a plea bargain."
Whew. Now it's safe for me to love dogs again.
