For some reason, blogger wouldn't load all day -- and kept me from posting! The Sunday morning shows were full of Democratic condemnation of the collapse of the intelligence reform bill; chances are, however, that Congress will be recalled after Thanksgiving and some kind of compromise will be reached.

Only Fox News Sunday bothered to cover some of the egregious corruption at the United Nations; suffice it to say that, contrary to John Kerry's charges during the campaign, it wasn't America's allies that constituted the "coalition of the bribed." And now, as the scandal intensifies, it's being revealed that "oil for food" money went from Saddam Hussein to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers. So much for the "myth" that there were no ties between Saddam Hussein and terrorists.

In other news, the new film on Dr. Alfred Kinsey is now out in selected theatres in California. By all accounts, it portrays Kinsey as some kind of sexual liberator, consistent with the all-too-common oversights of liberal movie myth making; there are plenty of reasons to believe that -- in fact -- he was an extremely sick guy . . . someone who was willing to benefit from the disgusting activities of pedophiles, for one thing, had sex with all the members of his staff, and encouraged his wife to participate in pornographic films (see here). How wholesome. In fact, there's plenty of evidence that he "produced and directed the rape and torture of hundreds of infants and children." See here.

So let's get this straight . . . there are people in Hollywood who were disturbed by "The Passion of the Christ" but are perfectly okay with a movie glorifying a pedophile. Yes, just as John Kerry said -- Hollywood really is the heart and soul of America. Right.

I would suggest Hollywood's fascination with certain subject matter can be attributed to their secular nature, but even secularists have morals and values to some degree, so that explanation is quickly negated.

The reason, then, Hollywood is fascinated with and celebrates certain subject matter that otherwise disgusts and upsets the majority of film- and movie-goers is because it upsets and disgusts the majority of film- and movie-goers, going to prove, again, a truth and fact: Hollywood, like the mainstream news media, doesn't get it: People want a good story, not filth or deviancy.
