<a href="http://slate.msn.com/id/2081488/: target="_blank">NBC to make a movie about Pfc. Jessica Lynch</a>.

Christ, you know, I'm not saying anything bad about her, this is about the Network. Let's be honest here, though, other than getting captured by the enemy and then taken back, there isn't anything here to "make a movie" about. Hell, <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A26714-2003Apr14.html" target="_blank">Iraqi doctors at the hospital are already admitting that there was no resistance</a> when she was rescued, that is was pretty much a big dramatic thing. So, with no excitement left to the rescue, which is what brought this soldier to the spotlight, why make a movie?

I'm constantly finding more reasons I'm glad I don't watch TV.
