Cynicism never sleeps.
The New York Post has joined a great deal of the Internet community in damning Hollywood for trying to do something good in the face of tragedy. What a sick, sad world. Neil Young was condemned loudest of all. Sorry, but I think peace is something that the world needs to imagine right now. Fuck you John Podhoretz, just turn off the TV if you don’t want to see it. People do what they can. Entertainers entertain. While I think it’s healthy to question the messages sent out by the media, sometimes cynicism goes over the top too.
Speaking of Podhoretz, on a lighter side there is a new book coming out October 30th: A Mind of Its Own: A Cultural History of the Penis by David M. Friedman. I don’t think I need to buy it though, I know what happens in the end. They all get jobs at newspapers and on TV.
