Sarah Hall did an article on poor, misunderstood, Tom Cruise, and after a long list of Tom's oddments, we get:

So, what's not to like? Nothing, according to Cruise's attorney, Bert Fields.

"What was his personal conduct?" Fields asked in an interview with the New York Post. "Jumping on a couch on Oprah Winfrey because he's in love with Katie Holmes? That really deserves the death penalty?
What? A lawyer is making his case? Does anyone else get the feeling that the public might get sued in a California court and be ordered to start liking Tom Cruise again? Watch out for a court order mandating that 43% of us start going to his movies again. Or that 26% of us have to buy a Dixie Chick CD.

(and, no lie, on NPR yesterday I heard some British person commenting on how she fears that we've come to judge personalities based on religion or political beliefs... Little did she suspect that we also judge people on the stupid things they say on NPR)

Well, you know, I hear, for example, that Hitler was nice to his dog. Great guy.
