Ghostbusters 3 rumors have been going around for a few years.

Then word comes that shooting begins in May 2011 and the release is set for Christmas 2012. And Bill shows up wearing this.

And finally, this video was pulled from a Smithsonian art museum after Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, objected to it. The video is about the pain of AIDS victims in Mexico, and references the Catholicism of that country by showing a crucifix with ants crawling on it.
I don't think much of the video, but I'm doing my part to make sure more people see it now that Bill has thrown a fit than if it just sat in the National Portrait Gallery.
