...That's the cheerful thought
I fell asleep on last night after seeing premiere screening of
Noise & Static, an alarming account of what transpired outside the
arenas at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions this year.
Citizens who came to ask redress of their complaints were arrested en
masse and journalists--independent and corporate alike--were targeted
for detainment so that the story of the pro-Democracy movement (and its violent
a militarized police force) would not go beyond Denver
and St. Paul. GN&S is a must-see movie of the moment. In 2004,
many predicted an October Surprise would disrupt the presidential election.
It didn't happen then, but it's October now and the manipulators who cry
the sky is falling are the very ones who knocked it down. ...Surprise!
