I don't know which was the critical tipping point for Co$: their prosecution
of Keith on phony charges which really stirred the internet community and
resulted in publicity that cannot even be bought, or the Cruise video which
is so profoundly absurd on so many levels, it is its own parody.

Here it is, in case you missed it the first time around: 


This video causes one to wonder how screwed up can a person be, and still
function at their job?  Perhaps being a Hollyweird actor is a special case,
which actually requires some degree of screwed uptitude.  

On the other hand, perhaps lives were saved by this video.  Imagine driving
in or around Hollyweird, get in a serious accident, wake up surrounded by
paramedics, Porsche pulls up and out jumps an actor, pushing the
professionals aside while insisting he is the only one who can really help.
You beg someone to have mercy just strangle you to hasten the inevitable and
end your misery.  Perhaps proles in southern Taxifornia will drive more
carefully with such a threat on the horizon.
