Stone's stone
To Fom, Mr. Stone has refused to show up for court here in La. on charges that one of his ,not-so-nice movoes" natural born killers" influenced two young people to kill a convient store clerk here. He may be a stoner, but that does not make him a nice guy. Bet that he cops out on this court appearance by saying it was the big bad dope that made him do it and that he'll never never never do it again. I hope I'm wrong but that is the way most of the stars do when they get caught..

Oliver Stone is Good!
Oliver Stone is so well respected that I know he will do his best to make a statement when his court day shows up. I could be wrong but it would be out of his character to do otherwise. His movies like Born on the Fourth of July and Platoon really make some hard hitting points! He believes that drugs can enhance creativity. He said that when we had an interactive chat with him on CNN's Talk Back Live and they even took a question I had typed into the chat and read my name and ask him the question I wrote! It was really cool. I believe he was a good friend of Timothy Learys too!Peace, FoM!
