If you use your force and dream big, you can achieve anything. We may be small but we are mighty.
"Little Darth Vader" Max Page • In a statement following his successful open-heart surgery on Saturday. The seven year old, famous for his appearance in a Force-inspired Volkswagen Passat ad, suffers from Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart disease that has caused him to require multiple heart surgeries since his diagnosis at three months of age.

George Lucas Strikes Back of the Day: Star Wars creator George Lucas has been trying for years to convert a large parcel of land in Marin County, California into a 300,000 square foot movie studio, with amenities including a day care center, restaurants, a gym and a parking garage, only to be shot down by his wealthy neighbors.
Because the local homeowners’ association has refused to let Lucas move forward with the studio, he’s decided to put the land to good use by transforming it into low-income housing, simultaneously doing a good deed and trolling his fellow landowners.
“If everyone feels that housing is less impactful on the land, then we are hoping that people who need it the most will benefit,” Lucas snarked.
He’s even donating the various studies and surveys he paid for while working on the movie studio project, to help the new housing development get underway more quickly.

WHEN RICH PEOPLE FIGHT

In other words: George Lucas is willing to help the less fortunate by creating low-income housing … as long as it drives down the land values of everybody living around them.
