So Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were apparently in town this week. They met with Obamas and went to a party where they talked about her new movie and she wore a gray coat and, oh, what's the use trying to make this visit sound interesting. It's nothing personal against these fine-looking people, but since Angie stopped kissing her brother and wearing blood around her neck, it's been harder to get worked up about her.

In fact, the juiciest detail any of our region's gifted gossip reporters managed to wrangle from the Jolie-Pitt stop in D.C. was Angie's admission that she's a "closet geek." Speaking to The Hill's Judy Kurtz, Jolie says she likes to discuss politics at home and sit in on trials at the Hague. Oh and Brad was walking with a cane. So there's that.
