RARA-AVIS: Re: Big Issue (slightly off-topic)

60 pence of the pound goes to the homeless vendor, the other 40p to the publisher.

It's an interesting mag, but can be a little too politically correct at times. A recent issue which cover-featured the new SHAFT film (saying that it compares badly to the original) complained about the movie STUART LITTLE using a short actor (Michael J. Fox) to voice a short character (a talking mouse), saying that it was heightist and that a taller actor should have been used to provide Stuart Little's voice!
