Miss Marple's Face lift

According to Deadline Hollywood, Agatha Christie's crotchety old spinster will be getting a Hollywood makeover. Mark Frost is scripting a Miss Marple version where she's in her prime mid 30s or 40s. St. Mary's Mead will likely be sex-ed up, with a great deal more scandal and perhaps a love interest or two? The deal has been signed with Disney (isn't that a bit odd?)... can you imagine a "Miss Marple ride" or her face plastered on some weird English Tea set?

Who knows you

"It's all about who you know..." or so they say. I say it's about "who knows you", and moreover, what they think about you. Business, music, film, medicine, it's all about politics. Water cooler talk, golf course chit chat, and yes, often what you look like.

Right now part of the world is in chaos, another devastating earthquake off the coast in Japan with thousands left homeless, grieving after their missing loved ones. Vancouver, Seattle, L.A., San Francisco, Portland, have watched in horror as their mirror reflection across the pond continues to crumble. Chile, New Zealand, Japan...

One can't help but ask: Are we next?
