Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

The 15 hottest topics the week of October 16, 1992

1 Sinead O’Connor
Oooooh, I bet the Pope’s just shaking in his boots now, missy.

2 ”Let’s Get It On”
How very eloquent. Who’s running Bush’s campaign — Jim Baker or Rowdy Roddy Piper?

3 Campaign Ads
Pretty sad when Zamfir can make a better ad than most politicians. Doesn’t anybody running for office watch TV?

4 Spike Lee/Rodney King Tape
He won the rights to use it in Malcolm X. Like everyone’s dying to see it again.

5 Dustin Hoffman
Playing an unlikely hero in Hero. A whole new character for him, ”Rainbo.”

6 1492
Gérard Depardieu as Columbus. What does he discover — Quebec?

7 Robert Redford
His A River Runs Through It is a why-don’t-they-make-more-movies-like-this? movie. Because no one goes.

8 Jack Lemmon
Major Oscar buzz for Glengarry Glen Ross. Guess that kills Jean-Claude Van Damme’s chances.

9 Michael Medved
He says Hollywood’s twisted values have changed our society. The little f—er may have a point.

10 Ross Perot
A question to all those who think we need a businessman as President: Would you vote for your boss?

11 William Henry Gates III
The richest man in America is a 36-year-old college dropout. If he can’t afford it, who can?

12 Joan Rivers
Launching her new show Gossip, Gossip, Gossip. The great thing about Joan is that she only kicks people when they’re up.?

13 Michael Jackson
The concert from Bucharest on HBO. What if they think we all dress like that?

14 Trump, The Musical
Sick, the Idea.

15 Larry King
The real winner this election year. He proved there’s a market for major-league softball.
