Submission + - Jack Valenti (former MPAA head) Suffers Stroke

Seumas writes: "Jack Valenti, who served as president of the Motion Picture Association of America for nearly four decades, has suffered a stroke and has been taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, officials said. Valenti was central to creating the MPAA rating system — now G, PG, PG-13, R and NC-17 — as a way to rate films as appropriate for certain age groups."
