Memo to the Academy Award Hopefuls...

Dear Heath Ledger and Rachel Weisz,

It may not be in your best interest to start condescending to Americans when you're aiming for Oscar nods.

I heard a while ago that West Virginia was going to ban it. But that's a state that was lynching people only 25 years ago, so that's to be expected.

He knows where Europe is, unlike a lot of Americans.
Mr. Ledger may want to check his facts (like the folks at Movie City News who discovered that "the last two reported lynchings occurred on Dec. 10, 1931"). And as for Ms. Weisz, we all saw National Lampoon's European Vacation. We know exactly where Europe is. This type of mouthing off may work if you're looking to settle for an AFI Award or a BAFTA Award, but here in the U.S. of A., the Academy only likes it when red-blooded Americans talk trash about our country:

P.S. And just because you're both reproducing with Americans doesn't make you Americans (I think you have to marry them).
