burning questions answered

the times today poignantly asks, "what makes people give?"

answer: certainly not that photo.

and this mystifying quote: In addition to established figures like Colin Firth and Helen Mirren, Oxfam is affiliated with Scarlett Johansson, who has visited South Asia (where the organization promotes girls’ education) and is scheduled to go to Mali. Cruz notes that while “trendy young people” are attracted to the star of “Match Point” and “Lost in Translation,” Johansson had “great credibility with an older audience because she’s such a great actress.”

since when?

Scarlett may not be possessed of Streep-like gravitas, but I think she's decent in more light-hearted fare. See Scoop and her Saturday Night Live hosting gig:
"Put your coochie up, put your coochie down."
