Legally Blonde

I can’t believe I am about to type these words. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I know a real man actually confessing love for a chick flick. What ‘s up with that. Well I’ll tell you what is up girlfriends it was really well written. My mother taught me to root for the underdog and as a Christian I always learned to believe in the power of one. This movie combines both those aspects. To call Elle Woods Christ like would be blasphemy. (sort of like cheering for the Dallas Cowboys) To call her courageous , determined and powerful would be and understatement however. What we see in this one hour and thirty six minute comedy is a woman is determined to be herself, break from the mold of many “dumb blondes” before her and prove that anyone can attain her dreams and aspirations. Even if they are as unlikely and oxymoronical as a flax hired diva making a name for herself at Harvard Law School. She does that with a vengeance. The cast is amazing, Reese Witherspoon is the titular character. Luke Wilson as the ever so patient and some what cute love interest. Ali Larter as the main defendant and Selma Blair as the other woman. Oh yea I forgot Holland Taylor as the persistent, hard nosed, ever so lovable law professor. I am ashamed to say my namesake and relatively unknown Matthew Davis played the despicable ex-boyfriend so well. My mind is truly expanding in 2009. I have had many firsts on my blogspot and managed to stick it out at a despicable job like Taco Bell. Oh my word am I actually getting smarter? Who’d of thought. (Yes that was a seemingly self incriminating final line.) Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
