Hollywood insight

I don’t walk out of many movies (although there are some I should have). But when I remembered the ruckus raised over a word used one time in Gone with the Wind, I could hardly believe that The Wolf of Wall Street wasn’t X-rated, much less that it was nominated for a best picture award by the Motion Picture Academy.

If this makes me a blue-nose, then so be it. But as another critic once said, “I may not be able to define pornography, but I know it when I see it.”

I guess Hollywood’s glee at poking fun at Wall Street seriously clouded its common sense, but it does give an insight into its values and mind-set. And as for common sense, it is such a rare commodity these days that we no longer even expect it from our judges and our politicians.

CORRECTION

On the March 1 Opinion Page, there was an error in a letter from Eric Mach. The line affected by the error should read: “It is all about trying to convince people to be yoked with more taxes — Cap and Trade.”
