Quite possible one of the greatest comedy grouping ever. Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray (both SNL alumni) Harold Ramis (the most often forgotten of the three) was of SCTV fame. Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis and Annie Potts round out the eclectic group of comedic actors. Not to mention William Atherton as one of the greatest antagonists ever. This movie was hysterical. The rapid-fire lines were delivered one after the other like clockwork by various cast members. "Listen do you smell something?" was one of the more forgotten but more thought proving lines. The humor was delivered with canonical bluntness and the acting was grade A. Bill Murray was nominated for a Golden Globe and the entire movie was up for "Best Motion Picture Comedy Musical". Ivan Reitman a major "flash in the pan" eighties director was in the chair for this laugh out loud riot. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis not only wrote the screenplay they starred in it too. (so by the way did Rick Moranis) They above mention players combined their talents for what has to be one of the most memorable movies of my childhood. I still quote it to this day and it is the perfect movie to put on as I clean my apartment. It's spic and span and methodically organized as result. This movie is sure to go down in the history books as one of the funniest movies ever. The Mc Donald's Golden Arches is the most recognized symbol in the world. The Ghost busters' logo is number 2. A symbol that's not even been around a quarter of a century (next year it will receive that anniversary) and already it received worldwide notoriety. See this movie over and over again and fall on the floor laughing every time. 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!
