Wanna talk about the news? You're crazy. Ick. Wow. I don't think I'm imagining it- my impression is that the news, in particular the "Big News" has gotten just astonishingly horrifyingly worse in the past few months. Not one thing after another; but 10 things, after another, all life-threatening for the planet and/or our species, and/or any remaining shreds of what we used to call "civilization".
So; I want to share this with you; I'd encourage you to go to YouTube, see it full screen, and maybe turn your screen brightness up a bit, as this clip is a little dim (it's supposed to be dusk in the movie, for one thing.) I've sworn that one day - I'm going to DO this. On a crowded street. The time is ripe.
I think- it would be good to start a movement of THOUSANDS of people DOING this - around the world. The world is revolting yes? This would fit right in.
And it is by far the most cogent comment on the world and news I know of. And Steve Martin had it nailed in 1987.
