Lancelot Link: President's Day Edition.

Lancelot Link Monday! Happy President's Day! This is a holiday in the USA, where we combined Lincoln's Birthday and a bunch of other Presidents who happened to be born this month into one day off. Okay, one day you probably have to work where the banks are closed. And government is closed. So *the President* probably gets today off, but you get time and a half (if you're lucky) and have to work. So, while you are pretending to work, here are this week's links to some great screenwriting and film articles, plus some fun stuff that may be of interest to you. Brought to you by that suave and sophisticated secret agent...

Here are a dozen links plus this week's car chase...
