In the news: George Lucas does his civic duty; Football coach not up on Star Wars lingo

The Creator. George Lucas was at the Marin Civic Center yesterday – for jury duty. Not the most exciting of news (he was dismissed) but if you feel like a look back, The Atlantic published their 1979 profile of Lucas.

Sports. Florida Gators coach Will Muschamp was befuddled a week or so back by the term ‘padawan.’ ESPN has the video – and a brief guide.

Hmm, good news, yes. Our ancestors like Yoda spoke, linguists say.

Fans. Florida teacher Jay Hoff created a massive diorama of the Death Star II hanger bay from Return of the Jedi – with LEGOs.

People. Mark Hamill talks comics with CNN; Billy Dee Williams will be making an appearance on ABC’s Man Up; Natalie Portman is going to produce a miniseries based on a novel by 80’s staple Judith Krantz.
