Elf No, it didn't take long for the film Elf to become a holiday classic. I've come to love it. There's something about seeing innocence and truth clash with the harsh realities of a broken world that reminds us of what's most important in life, and can even serve to remind us of the hope that is ours because of Christmas.

Many have celebrated and praised the magazine and Mrs. Kardashian for these "tasteful" images. But we have to ask the question: How is this any different than Playboy which, as of this writing, is still considered pornography?...

YOUTH CULTURE HOT QUOTE
_________________________________________________
Jason Reitman
 
"It's like giving the keys to the car, only they're much younger. And unlike a car, which you can drive to any part of town, on the Internet, a cellphone can really take you anywhere.
