Spike Lee's "Masterpiece" [Jonah Goldberg]
I ended up watching it last night. There's was a lot of interesting and moving stuff in there — how could there not be? — but at four hours, complete with conspiracy theory nonsense and "don't-blame-the-victime" but "hey look, we're victims" seesawing, I found it scandalously self-indulgent. But what else do you expect from Spike Lee?

...you have to take it with a saltmine.
Remember how moving Jonah was about Katrina?
Attn: Superdome Residents [Jonah Goldberg]
I think it's time to face facts. That place is going to be a Mad Max/thunderdome Waterworld/Lord of the Flies horror show within the next few hours. My advice is to prepare yourself now. Hoard weapons, grow gills and learn to communicate with serpents. While you're working on that, find the biggest guy you can and when he's not expecting it beat him senseless. Gather young fighters around you and tell the womenfolk you will feed and protect any female who agrees to participate without question in your plans to repopulate the earth with a race of gilled-supermen. It's never too soon to be prepared.

I once again remind Jonah, that some say Iraq is perfectly safe and Rich Lowry says it is getting safer (don't be frightened by those 20 service deaths the last few days or the 150 plus that have died in bombs the last couple). We know Rich Lowry is NEVER wrong about Iraq! So it seems to me its time to consider enlisting now...more than ever!
