What if the powers-that-be refuse to give us funding for the next movie after they see what we've put in this one?

Dr. Arnold Klein has sued Dr. Steven Hoefflin in the Michael Jackson prescription drug saga -- sued him for defamation of character.
According to the suit, Dr. Klein claims Dr. Hoefflin told The Sun in the minutes following Jackson's death, "[Dr. Conrad] Murray definitely called Klein because Klein taught him how to administer Propofol ... Murray would have counted on Klein to be the source of Propofol and guide him on its use."
Klein claims Hoefflin's conduct was "willful, fraudulent, malicious, oppressive and reckless" and was done "with the intent to injure and harm Dr. Klein."

Applied Materials is one of the most important U.S. companies youve probably never heard of.
It makes the machines that make the microchips that go inside your computer.
The chip business, though, is volatile, so in 2004 Mike Splinter, Applied Materialss C.E.O., decided to add a new business line to take advantage of the companys nanotechnology capabilities making the machines that make solar panels.
The other day, Splinter gave me a tour of the companys Silicon Valley facility, culminating with a visit to its war room, where Applied maintains a real-time global interaction with all 14 solar panel factories its built around the world in the last two years.
I could only laugh because crying would have been too embarrassing.
Not a single one is in America.
