Cinematic Albinos

CINEMATIC ALBINOS….From the “things you probably didn’t know” file:

“The Da Vinci Code” will be the 68th movie since 1960 to feature an evil albino.

This comes courtesy of the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation, which is not amused. And I have to admit they’ve got a point: when I saw the trailer for The Da Vinci Code, I turned to Marian and the first thing I said said, “Jeez, what’s the deal with evil albinos in the movies, anyway?”

But enough of this tomfoolery. I suppose it’s time to return to more serious matters, isn’t it?
