Strange business

From Reason.tv:

For an industry that absolutely obsesses over the box office and the bottom line, Hollywood sure does have an odd view of capitalism.

Is it self-loathing? Or is it a peculiar statist disorder that sees its own profiteering as somehow more pure than other capitalist endeavors. Who knows?

Just keep making those movies, guys and maybe one of these days we'll get around to enduring the soul-crushing experience of the multiplex to watch one.

A couple of very important movies are out this Friday!

1) Inside Job this Friday about crony capitalism and corruption causing the financial crisis

2) Waiting for Superman about the corrupt education establishment keeping kids trapped in horrible schools

I don't see many movies either, but let's get the word out to support the good ones.

W.C., I also am looking forward to Waiting for Superman. I hope it brings some broader attention to the plight of our inner-city public school system.
