I went to see "Charlie Wilson's War" today.

I went to see "Charlie Wilson's War," with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts today. It's about how a "Good Ole Boy" style Texas Democratic Congressman managed to increase anti-Communist rebel funding in Afghanistan from $5 million to $1 billion during the years of the Russian invasion.

I've pretty much summed up the plot in three lines, but it was well worth going to see. I certainly enjoyed it and I don't think that that's because I'm a politics junkie.
