School Me tells an only-in-West LA story about a celebrity spat:
. . Santa Monica’s celebrity-encrusted Crossroads School offered an assembly at which Laurie David — environmental activist, Gore documentary producer, Hollywood spouse and Crossroad’s mom — showed Gore’s global warming film to middle and high school students. During the question session, a young scholar asked about best-selling author Michael Crichton’s, “State of Fear,” a novel that questions the science of global warming and rolls its rhetorical eyes at some people’s level of concern.
Seems David launched into a rant against Crichton. Seems Crichton offspring also attends Crossroads and was in the audience.
Despite worries at the ultra-progressive school about the young Crichton’s self-esteem, nobody has filed suit yet.
