The following is taken (nearly) verbatim from an article at The Futon Critic:

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, the USA Network will premiere the original film The Space Between on Sunday, September 11 at 9 PM. This Characters Unit film stars Oscar and Golden Globe winning actress Melissa Leo (The Fighter).

In the film, Montine McLeod (Leo), a lonely flight attendant, and Omar Hassan (Anthony Keyvan from Lost and iCarly), a 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy, are on a plane that is grounded in Longview, TX the morning of 9/11/01. When Montine discovers that Omar’s father works in the World Trade Center she is forced to drive the boy back home to his uncertain future in New York. As they journey across America’s vast heartland in the hours and days immediately following the terrorist attacks, Montine and Omar help each other discover the importance of tolerance, redemption, acceptance and hope.

Immediately following is the Oscar winning short documentary film Twin Towers from acclaimed producer Dick Wolf of the long running Law & Order franchise.

May 12 is National Doodle Day in the USA.

What is National Doodle Day you ask? It is part of Neurofibromatosis Awareness month. Yes, that is a mouthful, but considering that Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that affects one in every 2,500 births. This disorder is more common than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy and Huntington’s disease combined.

In an effort to raise money and awareness, celebrity doodles – from the likes of Jeff Bridges, Richard Chamberlain, Melissa Joan Hart, Julianna Margulies, Elizabeth Mitchell, Simon Pegg, Katee Sackhoff and Liz Tigelaar – are being auctioned off on eBay during May. These doodles will help to raise funds that will benefit NF, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing support to individuals and families affected by neurofibromatosis.

Funds from the National Doodle Day auction will go to support education, advocacy, coalitions, and research for treatments and a cure.

For more information about National Doodle Day, visit the website or email them at doodleday@nfnetwork.org. To learn more about Neurofibromatosis, please visit here.
