A Space Oddity with Major Tom

Is there no end to Tom Cruise's single-minded determination to turn himself into a laughingstock? His latest media twist-off comes with belittling a Boston Phoenix reporter who dared ask if Cruise was attracted to War of the Worlds because of the important role that space aliens also happen to play in Scientology.

ABC News chimes in:

"Cruise ... was so stunned that he questioned the reporter's credentials. When told that the reporter worked for the Boston Phoenix, he asked, 'Is that a good paper? Really?' "

Oh, L. Ron Hubbard, failed hack sci-fi writer. Is that a good prophet?

What's to belittle? Space aliens and space travel do factor into Scientology.

Or, to put it the way Major Tom surely did to the perky Katie Holmes atop the Eiffel Tower ... Gort! Klaatu Barada Nikto!

Meanwhile, we can only venture to guess what the late great Hubbeard, ensconced somewhere on a (hopefully) good, rent-controlled planet, must be thinking of the never-ending TomKatie show ...

Christ, I bet I coulda bagged Mamie Van Doren herself with all that Xena stuff. Second base, definitely ...

Is that an ascot he's wearing? Maybe he didn't spend much time chasing broads.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
