Bush, Putin pledge to strengthen relationship
No agreement reached over U.S. missile shield plans
By Kristina Iodice
Copy Desk Chief

When President George W. Bush was in high school, Russia was an enemy. Now, students can know Russia is a friend to the United States and both countries are working to break the old ties and establish a new spirit of cooperation, Bush said Thursday at a high school in Crawford.
“What we’re talking about is a new relationship, a relationship that will make your lives better when you get older, and it will make your kids’ lives better as they grow up,” Bush said. “A lot of people never dreamt that an American president and a Russian president could have established the friendship we have.”

Hollywood suffers from lack of great films
By Jack Bullion
Skiff Staff

It seems kind of weird to think longingly of the year 1999 as days of yore, but when it comes to movies, we practically underwent a golden age some two years ago. Week after week, great movie after great movie rolled off the assembly line: “American Beauty,” “Being John Malkovich,” “Three Kings,” “The Insider,” “Fight Club,” “Magnolia,” “Election,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” “Toy Story 2,” “Topsy-Turvy.” Even in that incredible list, I know that there are films I’m forgetting — that’s how good 1999 was.

By Jack Bullion
Skiff Staff

While all those exist to fill an aching spiritual, emotional and psychological absence, the latter has been the most exhaustively covered topic in the Spiritualized oeuvre.
