True Love Revolutionaries Take a Stand

<p>True Love Revolution has been making a lot of noise since The Crimson's publication of Silpa Kovali's editorial last week, called "True Love Revision," in which the author examined points made by TLR president Rachel L. Wagley '11 in an interview. The piece has sparked a flurry of responses from TLR members, particularly Wagley and former co-president Leo J. Keliher '10, and the conversation—a tense one, it would be safe to say—is all over the Web. FlyBy thought it would be helpful to break down the situation. Check out all the links after the jump.</p><p>

Cruise Becomes a Law Student But Not Really. No, Not At All, Actually.

<p>When Tom Cruise starred in the film adaptation of the legal thriller The Firm, the book's author John Grisham later tipped his hat to Cruise, who played a recent Harvard Law School grad: "I thought [Cruise] did a good job," Grisham said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "He played the innocent young associate very well."</p><p>Very well, indeed. And let's not forget the time when Cruise played an HLS alum/JAG corps member in A Few Good Men. But it seems as though the actor's ability to blend into the role of an attorney has disintegrated over the years, considering how much attention he drew yesterday when he snuck into an entertainment law class over at the Law School. Lawyer Bertram Fields '52, who has represented countless celebrities, paid a visit to the class to discuss his Hollywood travails—but in just 30 minutes, Fields was overshadowed by the arrival of his client.</p><p>According to The Harvard Law Record, Cruise "surreptitiously" entered the classroom and "flashed his megawatt smile" at titillated students, announcing that "he was there to see Bert speak; after all, he'd never had a chance to hear him lecture before." What a considerate client! More after the jump.
