Ben Stein's Expelled Has Strong Opening Weekend
CitizenLink - Colorado Springs, CO, USA - Ben Stein's new documentary, Expelled, which chronicles the censorship of teachers, professors and students who question the theory of Darwinian evolution, performed well at the box office over the weekend.

Ben Stein's perfect portfolio - USA - It's no longer possible to win Ben Stein's money. But there is one thing we can gain from the actor-cum-economist: financial advice served up with a dose of humor. Fortune's Ellen Florian Kratz asked Stein to answer Fortune readers' questions about retirement and added some of her own regarding his homebuying addiction and his dislike of Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson.
