Now THAT'S What's Up...

Steven Spielberg, who was supposed to be an artistic adviser for the 2008 Olympics (yawn) in Bejing, China recently announced that he's pulling the plug on his involvement because of China's continued endorsement of the genocide in Sudan.

Basically, the Sudan sells 2/3 of it's oil to Bejing and Bejing sells weapons to the Sudanese government-- essentially adding a stamp (or AK-47) to the horror that's going on there.

According the BBC, Spielberg said-- "my conscience will not allow me to continue with business as usual..."

Kudos to you, dude.
