I’m starting with Roman Holiday: Audrey Hepburn (her first starring role) and Gregory Peck co-star in this Roman romp as an enchanting runaway princess and a struggling reporter steal a day together and fall in love. Apart from the typical touristy Roman landscape, there’s a hint of subterfuge, a case of hidden identities and agendas that tease and taunt. But class, power and personal responsibility temper what should have been, and the ending is bittersweet. Director William Wyler used a lighter hand here and his touch was impeccable. Beautiful locations. And that Hepburn fashion designed by Edith Head … How can you not love this picture? (1953) «Read the rest of this article»

President Bush acted lawfully in sending his gubernatorial papers 118 miles away to his father’s presidential library instead of the state archives across the street from the Texas Capitol, but the documents are state property and subject to Texas’ open-records law, states the Texas attorney general, John Cornyn.
At the behest of Mr. Bush, who was then governor, Texas enacted a law in 1997 that gave its governors the right to name an alternate depository for their official papers. But details of such a transfer remained murky under the law….
Based on his reading of the Texas law and its legislative history, Mr. Cornyn wrote that the law gives the governor “the power to designate an alternate repository for his gubernatorial records, but according him no other authority to alter the manner in which such records are preserved or made available to the public.”…
This means that the public can now get copies of records from Bush’s Texas administration.
