Twenty-five years ago today, a "disturbed drifter" fired six shots at Ronald Reagan, all because of a little movie called Taxi Driver and its little star. This weekend, Jodie Foster will no doubt remain atop the box office, adding another blockbuster jewel in the crown of her career. And look -- it'll be Crash Day in Los Angeles on Tuesday, the anniversary of Martin Luther King's assassination. (Hey, anything to sell the new director's cut DVD!) And happy birthday Warren Beatty, a maverick who knows something about contracting and enduring assassinations.
