Good Morning, Jesse Eisenberg!

104558550 1 Good Morning, Jesse Eisenberg!Mr. Eisenberg! Who knew?

This week The Social Network won the box office race, pulling in $15.5 million. Now, this wasn’t exactly a surprise, the movie’s been hailed by all the critics, and moreover the movie also won the honor last week (we congratulated Aaron Sorkin, then). But this continued success is certainly a testament to your staying power.

Your movie beat two newcomers, Secretariat and Life as We Know It, which feature things America love: horses and Katherine Heigl, respectively. And your movie is about a spooky nerd. That must mean you’re mighty likeable. Or at least not so off-putting as scare people away from theaters. I mean, Zombieland? That movie’s success could easily be attributed to the star power of Woody Harrelson.

We expect good things from you!  Great things! It’s a good Monday!

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
