  • Hollywood's Newest Hit: The Color Green Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | 5:03 PM ET

    In the entertainment industry, the idea of being green is very, very cool. You can't go two feet without seeing a Prius--they're even becoming the limo-of-choice for the Oscars. I myself bought a Prius in May and I love it. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it's also incredibly convenient. Not having to fill up that often saves a ton of money, and all that time wasted at the gas station. Tons of time.

    As many of you know, yesterday was the Taco Bell World Series promotion. I’ve received tons of e-mails from people telling me that I’ve underestimated how many tacos Taco Bell was going to give out. As I’ve said, I admit I underestimated because I didn’t think Taco Bell would promote the giveaway as much as they did. But maybe they really did want to give away tacos.
