I can't understand why George W. Bush hasn't just self-destructed. Now there's this whole immigration debacle: the Republicans figured that no one (except "wetbacks") would care about their draconian immigration laws (which are part and parcel of the whole Patriot Act/taking away civil liberties), and now it's backfired, as demonstrations in so many cities have jammed up the streets. Today, it was amazing: at three o'clock, i was on the subway, going across the Manhattan Bridge, and you could see the masses streaming over the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to City Hall! Getting out at Canal Street, there were hordes, and so many police barracades. But it was fascinating....

Two screenings at Tribeca: "The Big Bad Swim" (surprisingly not bad, a charming little indie with good performances) and "Metro" (ugh! incredibly bad, a digital production which was impossibly ugly, because there was no color correction, and all the interiors were lit badly, so that the scenes were red, or green, or yellow... and never once was there a skin tone).

But today on CNN a very bizarre item: there was a segment with Seymour Hersh, and his article about the possibility of an attack on Iran as planned by the current adminsitration. Of course, there was footage of Bush and Rumsfeld denying this. But then CNN did something really funny: they posted the number of outright lies by this administration, especially in relation to Iraq ("weapons of mass destruction", etc.) and then they posted Seymour Hersh's "resume", concentrating on the number of awards he's won, and the "scoops" (such as the My Lai massacre, etc.) that he's broken, and then they left it up to the viewer: who would you believe? Hilarious! That CNN would do that now....

Hmmm...
