TBogg is mad as hell, and he's not going to take it any more. He's started a petition in response to the awful news (warning: multiple obnoxious popups) that JLo and Ben Affleck are signed on to do a remake of Casablanca. I think all of us, wherever we are on the political spectrum, can agree that this is an abomination of Biblical proportions and that it Must Be Stopped. Please do what you can to prevent this disaster from infecting multiplexes across America.
Having said all that, I feel compelled to note that the mainstream press does not appear to have taken notice of this, even though the mere mention of the words "JLo" and "Ben Affleck" are usually enough to induce palpitations. Oddly, a Google search reveals variations of this story in French, Italian, German, Danish, Romanian, and Portuguese. Were it not for the appearance on a British page as well, I'd be wondering darkly if this weren't some kind of dirty trick being played on us Americans by a bunch of peacenik foreigners. You decide, I guess.
UPDATE: Great comment by Mike:
J.Lo and Ben are the tabloid press equivalent of Saddam's Iraq with the papers playing the role of the Bush Administration. They do plenty of horrible stuff that's actually true, but for some reason, the papers have the need to make up stuff that's even worse.
