Day Job
=======

[ From: Gary ]

> Saw two of your movie reviews.  There is certainly no accounting

[ Will do! ]


Fatally Flawed
==============

[ From:  Eddie ]
[ Re: BREAKDOWN ]

[ Silly is good. ]


Home Movies
===========

[ From: Eric ]

[ I'm still mulling. ]


Other Matters
=============

[ In order, (a.) considering the tone problems and the lousy lead
  actress, a "B" is probably far from "harsh", (b.) quality "art
  house" fare is available in all three Triangle cities, and (c.)
  I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 9, 1965, and moved
  to Morehead City, North Carolina in January of 1980.  ]


Czech Please

[ Obviously, I couldn't bear to correct her typo in the last line.
  Do you think she knows about The Elvis suit?

  Good night, everybody! ]
