We’re all patsies

May 31, 2011

The Fade Out, the blog edited by culture critic David D. Robbins Jr. (to which I periodically contribute), recently published my musings on Oliver Stone’s film “JFK.” It’s part of an ongoing series focused on three of his presidential films, “JFK,” “Nixon,” and “W.” As the intro to the series explains, David and I “talk about the three movies and what they show us about ourselves, American politics and its inevitable effect on the rest of the world.”

David’s eloquent response to my bloviating should be coming soon. Enjoy.

Also, PBS recently re-broadcast one of the best episodes of one of my favorite shows, “Secrets of the Dead,” which took a closer look at Pharaoh Psusennes I, whose Egyptian tomb supposedly rivals (if not exceeds) the treasures and historical significance of Tutankhamun. He’s one of the most important rulers you’ve never heard of.
