WHITE ELITISM
Tuesday, March 07, 2006
I would say that, you know, we are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while, I think. It's probably a good thing. We're the ones who talk about AIDS when it was just being whispered and we talked about civil rights when it wasn't really popular, and we -- you know, we bring up subjects. We're the ones -- this academy, this group of people who gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I'm proud to be a part of this academy. -George Clooney. Oscars 2006

    I'm a little lost here, Jack. I missed Clooney's speech--he didn't really say that, did he?

    Yep, EP. I think that he is right about one thing. Those people are so far out of touch with reality they walk about in some dreamstate thinking themselves the saviors of the world. How self-congratulatory (is that a word) of him. What a saint!

    They are the personafication of the ultimate "me generation"!

    You know, EP, there are a few good ones--those who actually do, and are not in it for the glory (Angelina Jolie and Bono come immediately to mind...)

    I'd feel better about Angelina Jolie if there weren't always a trail of cameras behind her, and if she hadn't hooked up with Brad Pitt while he was still married. Or maybe I'm just jealous . . . :-)

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".


Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.


Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.


In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
