My First Post Ever!

I can't believe I'm doing this.  It's not like anyone besides me is reading my entries at this point.

I just watched "The True Story of Charlie Wilson" on The History Channel.  They interviewed both Charlie and Aaron Sorkin, which pleased me to no end.  

I'm going to a matinee of "Charlie Wilson's War" tomorrow.  Word on the street from people who know Charlie personally is that Tom Hanks' portrayal is spot-on.  That surprises me because Charlie is such an imposing figure when you see him in real life -- incredibly tall, booming voice, and larger-than-life in general -- and Tom just does not strike me as any of those things.  It's not that I don't love Tom Hanks, I do.  But Tom as Good Time Charlie?  I'm not so sure.  I still can't wait to see the movie, though!
