Nonsense and sensibility
Alan Rickman wrote, directed, and produced My Name is Rachel Corrie. Clive calls the play
a painfully mediocre piece of agit-prop. Which it is, believe me.
Now that a New York theatre company has put off plans to stage it, Rickman’s crying censorship.
Well, cry me a river.
Update Guardianista Decries, Urges Censorship, and Scott makes a prediction.

Elephants in Academia’s been Gathering my thoughts on the Colombia-U.S. free trade deal
Yesterday was a great deal for Colombia, as it will provide President Alvaro Uribe with some much-needed capital with which to implement his proposed rebuilding of the Colombian infastructure. Mr. Uribe’s plan is to literally upgrade his country so it can serve as the commercial portal between North/Central America and South America, and he has been working hard to quell civil violence and drug trafficking in is country to make it more attractive to foreign investment.
Read the whole post. As The Elephant says, “The CBS poll of the President’s popularity is getting much more play in this 90210 world”, and of course there’s Anna Nichole Smith to report about.
That’s why we have blogs.
