Too plump We sue McDonalds (the suit turned out to be unsuccessful) for having tasty fries. Pennsylvanian doctors are making a mass exodus to states with more lenient laws concerning malpractice. Whenever the average American can blame a problem on something/someone else, they do so. Currently in the crosshairs of culpability is one Marshall Mathers. The Detroit rapper, known as Eminem, has stolen the hearts and ears of a generation.
An average performance in an average movie, 8 Mile, has lead to record setting DVD sales. Each of the three music albums he has released has sold over a million copies, home and abroad.
