The New Yorker's Noah Baumbach in the Shouts and Murmurs column has fun with some of Tom Cruise's latest media interviews. The article is entitled, "My Dog is Tom Cruise" and here is a brief excerpt:

Also, although unfortunately not on-line, this week's edition has an interesting article on the use of leeches and their comeback. It has some brief history and is a quick read. You may want to check it out - it is less scary than the latest Harry Potter. . . . [bm]
