As evidenced by recent box office figures, star power is a myth -- but good story is eternal by Stephen King


Some bad habits are hard to break. Making stupid cell phone calls while driving on the turnpike. Snack hunting in the fridge after 10 p.m. Scanning USA Today's Life section for the inevitable postmortem on how last night's American Idol contestants did.

And then there's believing in movie stars. The Hollywood elite were less than charmed when Chris Rock took after this myth in his Academy Awards monologue — the most amusing result was Sean Penn's impassioned defense of Jude Law — but I thought Rock was right on. At last someone pointed out the obvious: The emperor is strutting around in his birthday suit.

Great column. Is that THE Stephen King?? EDIT: It is.

Thanks for posting that. I'm going to read some more of his columns.

I have a feeling the two posters before me didn't even click on the link. ;)
