Someone just forwarded Paul Brownfield's "Seabiscuit: the Acceptance Speech" (Aug. 7) to me, and I haven't stopped laughing yet. It's hilarious. Thanks, Paul, for doing such great work.

Enjoyed Paul Brownfield's article on Fighting Furrari's acceptance speech. Truly, he (they) was one of the best things in the film! I'm a nonvoting member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but when it comes to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, I, too, shall nominate him for best oater.
