Hi All,
I just wanted to share my joy in seeing Mark Twain get a nod for his
inspiration of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Curious Case of Benjamin Button" at
the Screen Actor's Guild Awards last night.  Both authors were mentioned
during the awards show--a privilege not afforded to Ken Kesey when the film
version of _Cuckoo's Nest_ raked in its awards.

Though the _Benjamin Button_ film did not win, I was happy to see some
recognition given to the literary inspiration of the film.
