Going Dark

I apologize for the brevity of today’s post: I’m deep into the flu here, and I’m diverting my energy to meeting my deadlines. But hey, those Golden Globes, huh? Just let Tina Fey and Amy Poehler do everything.

Also, Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty topped the box office in its first weekend of wide release, grossing $24 milion and demonstrating that Americans are willing to overlook their own complicity in Bush’s torture policies if (a) they think they might see Osama Bin Laden get shot in the face or (b) they hope they’ll see Osama Bin Laden get shot in the face.

Either way, I’m glad people went. And I’m almost positive most of them didn’t get what they thought they wanted, but that’s okay too.
