    Speaking of the Hunger Games, Katniss is on the front cover of EW this week. I was not a big fan of the casting decision, but I must admit she looks pretty good.

      Sandy – I saw the article! I think she looks good, too – and I am pretty convinced she has the acting chops. I think it may end up being a good casting decision.
