James Cameron is doomed.
He says that Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, had a kid with Mary Magdelene AND he claims he’s got DNA evidence to prove it. Regardless of the quality of his documentary, James is probably going to get shot. Which ALMOST makes up for “Titanic.”

Gorbachev to Gates: Show mercy on software “pirate”
The story itself is pretty interesting, but what I really love is finding out that good ol’ Mikhail is using “gorby.ru” for his website. We need to get “gipper.us” for Reagan somehow.
