Give it up to Matt Weiner. He did not back down and pretty much got what he wanted: artistic freedom without the suits breathing down his neck. Bravo

The racist overtones are just so obvious. It is ok to disagree; what is not ok is stereotyping and race bating because you do not agree with something the person is doing. Our president is not perfect, but he damn better than the alternative

The Book of Mormon -- It's a Hit? →
I am here to report that a newborn, old-fashioned, pleasure-giving musical has arrived at the Eugene O’NeillTheater, the kind our grandparents told us left them walking on air if not on water. So hie thee hence, nonbelievers (and believers too), to “The Book of Mormon,” and feast upon its sweetness. It also has curse words, sexual situations, and plain old South Park funnies

Sometimes those of us who are gifted with the ability to string together interesting English sentences do not know when to shut the hell up. Exhibit A, from a dude who has slapped his share of women around and still doing personal work on it.
Detroit 1-8-7 Should Make it To Year Two........ →
Detroit is getting an ass kicking of late. Population down, job growth slow, houses abandoned with…….well abandon. But there was a bright light with this show. It has given people like my cousin Sam jobs. It has put focus on what is good in Detroit. And it is just plain ass good writing and character development. The momentum needs to keep going. My hometown deserves...
Reforms as a Result of Triangle…….
What is the Fate of the Ordinary Worker? →
When I arrived at NYU in 1983, one of my first classes was located in the Brown Building, where Triangle was located. Those 146 deaths was one of the catalysts that allowed me to go to graduate school, law school, and simply work in mostly fair conditions. There is much more to be done, but this beginning should never be forgotten or just remembered each March 25th.

Detroit Can Come Back →
When I was growing up, Detroit was #5 or #6 in population. Now it is 18th and may lose state and federal funds as a result. But if City leaders think smart, and consolidate this city can come back. It may not get back into the top 10 but maybe some the tumbleweeds can be replaced with innovation

Explosive accusations! Tears at premieres! Dastardly accidentally sent e-mails! At this rate, the drama swirling around Beats, Rhymes & Life, the A Tribe Called Quest documentary directed by Michael Rapaport, might be more entertaining than the movie itself.
