A Long Skid Mark

Tom Cruise is first in line to get the new Ducati. He must feel the need for speed. Unfortunately, here in LA there aren’t too many roads for him to open it up on because we live in a perpetual state of traffic. It is said that rush-hour starts at about 5 am and runs to 4:59 am the next day. It’s always rush-hour here.

Cruise, who looked really pissed at the SAG Awards the other night, has been the talk of the internet as Videos of him vamping on Scientology spread as fast as something like this would. My guess is he had that in the back of his mind at the SAG Awards and he knew everyone else was thinking about it too, so he felt like a big idiot.

I watched one of these videos, the one where he said “Being a Scientologist, when you drive past an accident, it’s not like anyone else. As you drive past, you know you have to do something about it, because you know you’re the only one who can help.”

I was going to take the road test for a motorcycle license a few years ago and someone who I respect a lot said to me “there are two types of motorcyclists: those who have been in accidents and those who are going to be.” I never followed through with the license.

I hope for Tom’s sake, if he ever takes a spill on his new Ducati, which I hope he doesn’t, that a friendly neighborhood Scientologist is nearby to take care of him. They’re the only ones who can really help.
