Mr. Vader Goes to Washington
If you haven't yet, feel free to take a moment to vote in this online survey, located in our "Star Wars" special section. The question: What's your favorite "Star Wars" quote? With 1618 votes counted, there's a tie for first place between two memorable Darth Vader statements: "Luke, I am your father" and "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
I've also just launched a new survey that asks the provocative question: What is the best contribution to American pop culture, courtesy of the "Star Wars" franchise? I'm torn, myself, but part of me wants to vote for the song "Ewok Celebration." After all, a couple of Meco fans can't be wrong.
Meanwhile, a helpful reader who runs this blog reminded me that the architecture of Washington's National Cathedral contains a hidden replica of Darth Vader's head. Why would the root of all galactic evil be part of a sacred religious facility? The Cathedral's Web site explains. Apparently many fans recently started to pray before the head of mighty Lord Vader in the hope that he will hear their pleas and make "Revenge of the Sith" a much better movie than "Attack of the Clones." All right, that last part I just made up. But if you want to visit the hallowed site in Northwest Washington and say a few "Amens," it probably wouldn't hurt.
