Imeldita
I have a deep dislike for dictators and an even deeper dislike for dictators' wives. I've always found Imelda Marcos repulsive; she's a thief and a liar, and her chutzpah, audacity, and sanctimonious drivel are beyond belief. She and her husband pilfered billions on jewels and art and New York real estate and international travels and vacations, while their people subsisted on starvation wages. What's amazing to me is that Imelda is not only back in the Philippines - I think she should be in jail - but that the Filipino people seem to have forgiven her actions. The weird world of Imelda Marcos
Imelda though remains enraged at her subsequent treatment. "We found ourselves in Hawaii, penniless, homeless and name-less," she says, slapping the table for emphasis. US Customs records showed the family arrived with nearly $9m in cash, jewellery and bonds. When Ferdinand died in 1989, Imelda found herself alone fighting in what she calls the "trial of the century" in New York on graft charges. After enjoying the backing of five US presidents and the close friendship of Ronald and Nancy Reagan (with whom she shared an interest in astrology), the shock of America turning on her was profound.

"They did this to me when I was alone, widowed and orphaned," she says, on the verge of tears. "Even the Bible says there are special places reserved in hell for those who persecute widows and orphans. And it was not individuals who did me in, it was governments and superpowers."

Con-man West
Jonah Goldberg is incisive and on-target in skewering Kayne West's "house nigga" shtick. Can there be a bigger scam than this relentlessly-merchandised media darling proclaiming his own put-upon-ness and trumpeting his daring? Who's braver, millionaire celebrity poseur Kanye West proclaiming that Bush is a terrorist and posing on the cover of Rolling Stone as a crucified Jesus, or the middle-class European newspaper editors and cartoonists who have so bravely risked their lives to confront a raging, homicidal, menacing and prickly Islamist temper?

How Hollywood Sausage is made
The original author of "Vengeance", the inspiration for Spielberg's Munich, tells the story of his experience with Hollywood people as the film was made. Pretty interesting stuff. It turns out that "Avner", the protagonist of Vengeance, was deeply involved with Tony Kushner and Spielberg in the making of the film. Needless to say, the book's author isn't exactly delighted with the movie.
Reviews and press comments on "Munich" accumulate. Spielberg is quoted as saying that the real enemy in the Middle East is intransigence. He conceives of "Munich" as a prayer for peace. His screenwriter Tony Kushner says they do not wish to demonize either side.

Such remarks illustrate why, in an era of moral chaos, Hollywood is unlikely to restore clarity. With due respect to pop culture and its undisputed master, one doesn't reach the moral high ground by being neutral between good and evil. Spielberg is a fabulous entertainer, a magician of a director, a very astute businessman -- maybe, just maybe, it's too much to ask that he should be a significant moral philosopher as well. He brings to the screen an adolescent's fresh eye: that's his strength. He also brings an adolescent's naïve confusion: that's his weakness. Off-screen, his weakness takes over as he meanders in some peculiar La-La Landesque fantasy: he plans to distribute 250 video cameras to Palestinian and Israeli children, 125 to each group, so they can record their ordinary lives, exchange tapes, and foster dialogue. (Sure, says my wife, and some Palestinian kids will use Spielberg's cameras to record their statements as suicide bombers.) There's nothing like a touch of film director's megalomania mixed with "progressive" delusions.

A few leftist reviewers flavour their remarks with a soupcon of anti-Semitism. They hint that Jews object to "Munich" because they're racist, and can't stand that Spielberg-Kushner view Palestinians as human beings. Writing for Bloomberg, Margaret Carlson says Spielberg treats the Palestinians as people, and that's enough to turn off a large segment of frequent moviegoers (read Jews). But treating Palestinians as people doesn't turn off a large segment of the Jewish population, as Carlson implies; what might turn them off is treating terrorists as people. Not demonizing human beings is dandy, but in their effort not to demonize humans, Spielberg and Kushner end up humanizing demons.

Tragic News Of The Day

Paris and Paris are no more

Paris (the other Paris, not the Greek Paris) says she wasn't "ready for marriage" and Paris (the Greek Paris, not the other Paris) "wasn't ready for marriage" either, according to his dad.

I suspect things are a little different. Nothing personal about Paris (the other Paris, not the Greek Paris) but there's no way a nice Greek family like the Latsis would take in a slut. Most brides that come into Greek families haven't shown the world their oral skills on night-vision camera.
