Angelina Jolie rides the train

For some reason, Angelina Jolie getting on a commuter train is big enough news that every major news agency is reporting on it. She bought tickets from a city station and boarded the Mumbai train but was so well protected by bodyguards that nobody could get near her for an autograph. And that’s it. She got on a train and wouldn’t sign autographs. That’s the news. I don’t want to tell Reuters or the AP how to do their job, but if they’re actually paying people to write these articles they might as well be shooting their money out of a cannon into an elephant’s butt. This is the sort of hard edged investigative reporting you’d expect from a 3-year old.
