The Interview

For some inane reason this aborted film has become a major issue in our country.  The Sony website was hacked by a group calling themselves the Guardians of Peace (GOP) and the irony of that matching the GOP is not lost on me.

Also inane, but perhaps predictable, is the North Korean response to this amateurish bit of fluff.  I say perhaps predictable because the tiny leader considers Dennis Rodman a representative sample of American sport.  Well, perhaps he is on to something there.

The strangest and most puzzling aspect of this is that North Korea managed to censor 1,600 movie theaters in the U.S.

The GOP issued a statement that read “Remember, remember, the 11th of September,” a very resonating phrase as all it reminded me of is the movie V for Vendetta and the Guy Fawkes Day celebrations as well as the Occupy wall-street marches.

I wonder how thinking people reacted to this?
