Welcome to NB's Nonauguration Day edition, wherein we ignore today's inauguration for more important news, like this...
So what if this was announced yesterday. Apparently, folks, you can all sigh a collective breath of relief. Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves are reuniting for the first time since Speed in a film called Il Mare, which I think, roughly translated, means "crap." Not since Speed have such powerhouse acting and sparkling personality been assembled for a motion picture. Unfortunately, the film doesn't begin shooting until March, so, until then, you'll just have to stick a knife in your eye and twist.
And, fine. We'll do something presidential today, just so NB is not accused of being unpatriotic. Every post will feature a highlight of the president's first term. Enjoy!
