A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

Friday, February 27, 2004 :::
Lots to write about today, but the whole day was taken up with a big submission, so probably not until tomorrow. Two quick notes:

Mel Gibson has little to worry about. It's really very simple: Jay Leno loved The Passion of the Christ and gave him ample time last night. Jay's good-bye to Mel? "Thanks for having the courage of your convictions." All other reviewers, you can stick the reviews in your portfolio, but the man who most reflects mainstream American tastes (after the mighty Steven Spielberg) has weighed in and all your scribbling pro or con is largely for naught.

Over "On the Taste Page" of the indispensable Wall Street Journal, Stephen Prothero, who has just written a book on how Americans try to make Jesus cuddly, has an excellent discussion of why the movie is so violent. And as it is Friday, of course, we should all read our Daniel Heninger, and today's column is a real bracer.

More tomorrow, folks.
