Election Easter Egg - Hidden Message from the Director

Get the DVD version, if you could, of Election, becuase you might not be able to read this on VHS.
From the menu select chapter 15, titled "A Life Mistake". At the very end of that chapter, you will see the newspaper articles of the teacher Jim McAllister's (Matthew Broderick) unfortunate happenings. As soon as you see the second article titled "Carver Student Plans Lawsuit", freeze it BEFORE it zooms in very close.
If you had the director's commentary on, you will know that Alexander Payne, the director, wrote all of these articles himself.
Now read the 2nd column, 3rd and 4th paragraphs. Here the director shows his sense of humor and even plugs his movie.

Could you write some of the stuff he says? I don't have DVD and I'm sure a lot of people don't.

And ruin it for the people who haven't seen it? Never. You can get away with it if you have a VHS and a large screen TV. Really, you should get a DVD. THier cheap now. Buy 2.
