Morning Mix: Another Hollywood Strike?

By Christian Pelusi

Headlines: Screen Actors Guild ponders options as contract expires on Monday... Drew Carey dials long distance for a pizza party... Steven Spielberg lines up another project... Nicole Richie eyes a cameo on an NBC show... Tony's outfits from "The Sopranos" fetch a large haul... Carrie Bradshaw again? Not quite but, Sarah Jessica Parker finds a "new" role... Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donate $1 million to aid Iraqi children.

Rumor Mill: Mini-Me no more? Verne Troyer has a sex tape... Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal move in together... Hollywood neighbors hate "The Hills," too... David Beckam may enter the mineral water game... For Nelson Mandela's big 9-0, Amy Winehouse tries nicotine patches... Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck deny report of split... Eva Longoria says she's not pregnant... Sex Pistols' Malcolm McLaren launches an "artful" porn movie for MTV's Times Square screen.

Final Analysis: Esquire.com has surfaced George Carlin's "What I've Learned" from 2001 and it shows that even the most outspoken of society's philosophers can have candid thoughts. A few examples:

My father drank and was a bully. For the first five years of my brother's life, my father beat him with a leather-heeled slipper. Had I been subjected to that kind of treatment, all bets are off. His absence saved my life.


Blacks are deliberately kept down. Poor communities are deliberately underfunded.


I did something in a previous life that must have been spectacularly good, because I'm getting paid in this life just magnificently, more than one would dare imagine or hope for.



Guest Celebritologist Christian Pelusi produces the Travel and Books sections for washingtonpost.com and feels that his love for the NFL and NHL more than balance out his interest in less-masculine programs like "Dancing With the Stars."
