    Shooting Blanks - Columbine-based Bingo Boyz targets the obvious.

    No More Wussies - Or, why Tom Hanks isn't Steve Guttenberg

    Tom Hanks is who Tom Hanks is today because of something he did about 14 years ago. One afternoon, Hanks walked into his agent's office and told the man who takes 10 percent, "I don't want to play pussies anymore." He had spent the better part of the...
