Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

Wisdom from Hollywood

There is some. For example, a guy named Pat Sajak has this to say:

Picture this: Somewhere in the world, a filmmaker creates a short documentary that chronicles what he perceives as the excesses of anti-abortion activists. An anti-abortion zealot reacts to the film by killing the filmmaker in broad daylight and stabbing anti-abortion tracts onto his body. How does the Hollywood community react to this atrocity? Would there be angry protests? Candlelight vigils? Outraged letters and columns and articles? Awards named in honor of their fallen comrade? Demands for justice? Calls for protection of artistic freedom?

It’s a pretty safe bet that there would be all of the above and much more. And all of the anger would be absolutely justified. So I’m trying to understand the nearly universal lack of outrage coming from Hollywood over the brutal murder of Dutch director, Theo van Gogh, who was shot on the morning of November 2, while bicycling through the streets of Amsterdam. The killer then stabbed his chest with one knife and slit his throat with another.

He has an idea, of course. Might even be on to something. And yes, he’s that Pat Sajak. A must read.
