As for today's other news, Brad and Angie have reportedly purchased a man-made island off the coast of Dubai in the shape of Ethiopia and intend to "intend to use the reclaimed piece of land to showcase environmental issues and encourage people to live a greener life." Because it's so smart and so green to give a country based on oil profits $30 million for a freaking island that’s going to get blown up when Dumbya gets around to invading Iran and the straits get blocked.
Oh, and lastly (or rather ghastly) guess who stars in the upcoming Beowulf adaptation? If you were a cynic, you might think there is no better way to promote a new movie than appearing in The Economist’s The World in 2008, at least for Saint-Angelina. This spin-off issue of The Economist is out today, selling at £4.95, and also features pieces by Nancy Pelosi, the Dalai Lama, and Michael Bloomberg. Get your copy from Odeon, sorry, Amazon.
