MoleculeJust when you thought the U.S. Government wasn't doing anything to help the craft of screenwriting -- think again.  In a weird sort of cross-promotion, the Pentagon is paying to train 15 scientists in the art of writing movies.  AFI has agreed to teach these brilliant minds plot and character techniques in an attempt to "impart such glamour to genes, gerbils and galaxies that teenagers will queue up to become molecular biologists or aircraft engineers."  One can only envision Orlando Bloom in a white lab coat shoving tons of textbooks aside to make love to a dashing blonde amongst the soft glow of a Bunsen burner.  Man, makes you really want to turn back the clock to the days when it was time to declare a major, right?
