A postscript to "The Paper"
I've consulted with the friend mentioned in my previous post, who strongly disagrees with me on my statement that The Paper is not a "masterpiece." It's No. 5 on his all-time list (the AFI be damned), and since he is the "objective truth," I guess I must defer to him. Also, his favorite quote from the movie in college was "Donald Trump jumped off a building and landed on Madonna," which amazingly still seems to hold up as a good tabloid story, considering the staying power of these two celebs. The only thing that would have made that quote better would be if it had been one of "his" buildings.
