Only $333,182?

Yeah, I know I say only; and yes, I would love to have all that income.

Obamas pay $1.8 million in federal taxes


...

The Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden also released their 2009 federal income tax returns, as well as state income tax returns for both Delaware and Virginia.

...

Together, they reported an adjusted gross income of $333,182.

...


But the f-d up state of affairs is, my managers at my ex-company made more that that.

[movie] Bounty Hunter

I went to see this with beckastar.

I picked the romantic comedy because a. I thought it would be funny and b. I hadn't seen one in a long time (Trial and Error was the last one that I remember).

And from what I remember, Trial and Error was better than this one.

Avoid it: the characters are non-existent, and the screenplay felt like the writer had taken one of McKee's story classes and come away with exactly the wrong idea. So instead of using character as the basis for the story, they were using the plot to drive the story.

Which made every plot twist and turn completely predictable. And I was a little annoyed that they had missed a few completely obvious comebacks.

This is a terrible movie. I was cringing through most of it. Sorry beckastar.
