Hookers

Look, we get it: Governor Spitzer fucked some whores, got caught, and is resigning. When I'm stuck on a plane for six hours with only Martha Stewart, her lovely guest Patricia Clarkson, and the absolutely amazing-looking chocolate-mint sandwich cookies they're making for company, is it really necessary for you to break in for yet another press conference from yet another person with nothing to say except, "Gee, that sucks, but it's not like we're going to close the state or anything?"

Also on the TV on the plane (god bless JetBlue!) - The Faculty. Why is this movie not more of a classic? Kevin Williamson script, brilliant performances from Bebe Neuwirth, Piper Laurie and Robert Patrick, really-good-for-teenagers-running-from-aliens work by Elijah Wood, Josh Hartnett and Clea Duvall. Oh yeah, and Jon Stewart:

(Skip to about 2:00 for Stewart. Though at 1:20 you get the brilliant, "Fuck you, Titbags!" Joey Potter never said that!)
