"The Silence of the Lambs" is playing this weekend at the AMC 20 at Streets of Woodfield, and it's not one of those crummy DVD things where they beam it in via satellite. According to the person I talked to on the phone today, Jonathan Demme's Oscar-winning classic will be shown on film. Rich, glorious celluloid. So if you want to see a classic on the big screen this weekend, get thee to Schaumburg!
The excitement doesn't end there: The theater is planning more weekend bookings of old favorites, including "The Fifth Element," "The Professional," "Poltergeist," "Aliens," "Psycho" and "The Omen." Stay tuned ...
This is what started it all:
Sarah's F@#$ing Matt Damon
First the news:
Gov. Rod Blagojevich has ordered a special session of the General Assembly for 1 p.m. Monday to address "real ethics reform."
From there it gets confusing:
Lawmakers teamed up this spring to come up with a plan that focused primarily on banning business with state contracts from helping finance the campaigns of the officials who award those contracts.
The governor has time and again lined his campaign warchest with donations from those doing business with the state.
It's generally referred to as pay-to-play.
Back when a coalition of lawmakers announced this deal, they said they were unified and if the governor dared veto or change the deal, they'd quickly override his move.
Well, that happened.
