FOUR DEGREES OF SEPARATION

The mother of a young woman whose doctoral dissertation I directed wrote a book about her [the mother's] experiences with Fundamentalist Christianity. That book will be made into a movie. In the movie, the author will be played by the actress who is currently appearing with George Clooney in his latest film, Up in the Air. So, I figure I am linked to George Clooney by four degrees of separation. How cool is that? Inasmuch as George Clooney undoubtedly knows Kevin Bacon, I am linked to Kevin Bacon by five degrees of separation. Do you suppose Kevin Bacon knows Angelina Jolie?
