Opus Dei Heads To Cannes -- Stupidly
Opus Dei is going to mount some sort of protest at Cannes, where "The Da Vinci Code" opens the festival on May 17. (That happens to be the anniversary of the beatification of the founder of Opus Dei.) Fine, except the Hollywood Reporter says they'll do it "just days" before the festival begins. Um, since the world's media doesn't arrive at Cannes until the day before it begins, that means Opus Dei will be staging a protest at Cannes when no one is around to see it. Duh.
