All men have dreamed about being able to create the perfect woman. In this picture Victor Taranasky (Al Pacino) does just that. What the movie created however is a wild romp of a ride of humanity. This film lets us know just how gullible we really are. (About some things of course) Abraham Lincoln said you can fool some of the people all the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all the people all the time. Victor Taranasky however managed to do just that. He fooled everyone into believing just how real Simone was. How many of us are guilty of reading magazines like people and Entertainment Weekly we watch shows like Entertainment tonight and Access Hollywood. We sneak a peak at the tabloid while standing in line at the grocery store and have office cooler conversations about celebrities we really know nothing about. We pretend as we are experts on the subject when in fact we are just feeding into the lies and lines the media wants us to believe. We are flies drawn into the flame. Simone makes us laugh and cheer and perhaps question ourselves as to weather or not we really know what we are talking about when we have theses water cooler discussions. Grade B

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!
