"Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature."  

Tom Robbins. [Quotes of the Day]

Shock, Awe and Razzmatazz in the Sequel. With the new engagement in Iraq, the Pentagon and television news coverage are blurring the lines between movies and real life as never before. By Michiko Kakutani. [New York Times: Business]

An excellent, sober review of television coverage of the Iraq war by the Times' film critic. Seems that too many Americans have lost sight of the facts of war: blood, death, destruction, pain, horror, and ugliness on both sides of the battle. We're able to watch war movies full of graphic gore in part by knowing that the directors and actors went home alive at the end of the day. But in a real war, the dead don't get to go home ever again.
