Quiet desperation, public humiliation

Well, Katie Holmes has emerged from her post-birthing hiding to attend the L.A. Mission Impossible: III premiere with her captor, nee fiance, Tom "The Wingnut" Cruise.

I'd like to take this moment to reflect on what we, as a public, have lost with the enslavement of Ms. Holmes to the ranks of Scientology wingnuttery.

1) A promising actress - of all the Dawson's Creek alums, I thought Katie had the brightest careers ahead of her.
2) A smart actress - "First Daughter" aside, Katie had made very smart film choices from "Pieces of April" to "Wonder Boys" and "The Ice Storm."
3) A seemingly normal person - Ohio girl made good has now become the silent half of one of the most embarrassing public spectacles to hit Hollywood.

Sigh. Katie, Katie, Katie. What have you done?
