The premiere was wonderful, and the story being told was cathartic for the community. Too bad the rest of the country seems not that interested. Check out A Sour Apple Tree for a terrific post on how the flick is faring, and a perspective on how it could be worse.

Former President Ford died this week, and I can't help but think of Chevy Chase. The SNL-guy looked nothing like Ford, but captured something about the man that stuck. To all you future politicos: a "full, free and absolute pardon" might be a nice gesture, but it's a career killer. Don't do it.

I think the after-Xmas blues have just returned...
