Minus The Nemesis
A Collaboration of Some of the Finest Thought on Today's World

Sorry kiddies Tom Cruise has gone off of the deep-end.

On the Today Show with Matt Lauer, Tom Cruise made a pretty big ass of himself. When confronted with the facts of Cruise's past criticisms of Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants, Cruise retorted with: "You don't know the history of psychiatry. I do." He further stated that Matt Lauer didn't know what he was talking about. Tom, just because you are now in an apparent need of psychiatric help does not make you any more knowledgeable about it than Matt Lauer.

"Matt, Matt, you don't even you're glib," Cruise responded. "You don't even know what Ritalin is. If you start talking about chemical imbalance, you have to evaluate and read the research papers on how they came up with these theories, Matt, OK. That's what I've done." I thought it was funny (and completely incorrect) when Cruise stated matter-of-factly that there was no such thing as a chemical imbalance.

Nevermind that glib is an adjective; if I was Katie Holmes' parents, I would be having second and third thoughts about this relationship. On the other hand, perhaps Cruise is making such a fool of himself because Katie Holmes is either a) currently ingesting ritalin, or b) has, in the past, been prescribed ritalin. This is speculation on my part, but could turn out to be true. On watching the show further, Cruise continued to make an idiot of himself and in doing so, is putting stress on his career. What I find odd, is that Tom fancies himself as an expert on all of these things, yet finds the enormous amounts of time required to make movies eh? You are suspect! For your apparent disregard of scientific fact (and aren't you a Scientologist?), you are now a prime candidate for the Pro Idiots page Tom Cruise! Congratulations.
