Read & Practice Peacemaking Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church presents religious scholar Chris Hedges as he speaks on his latest book, “Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and Triumph of Spectacle” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28. Hedges challenges the tendency to be more interested in Octomom than in the health insurance reform bill, and observes that we are more likely to vote for an American idol than for a public official. Are we being lured by the overwhelming multi-media assault into retreating from a reality-based world into one of false certainty and magic?

There have been many stories written about 21-year-old La Cañada resident Emily Wynne-Hughes since the Jan. 13 airing of her Phoenix American Idol audition. She auditioned in Phoenix, Ariz. and made it to Hollywood, making an impression on all four Idol judges. But the press that has followed since has not always been on the positive side. “I have had a harsh awakening,” Wynne-Hughes said about the last few weeks. “My life is under the microscope.” She made the decision to audition for American Idol after she and her mother had a heart- to-heart discussion about her future in the recording industry.

If you have not seen this movie yet it is only because of bad advertising. This is one of the funniest movies this reporter has ever seen.
