As predictable as the coming of Autumn, the finding of yet another
antibiotic-resistant bacterium or a pronouncement that America is drowning
in a sea of debt that makes us all envy the lantern-fish, Katheryn
Bigelow's win of "Best Movie" and "Best Director" was immediately trounced
by The Oppressed Enemies Of The Patriarchy.
Evil endures, apparently because some had the gall to think a movie that
faces reality squarely in the eye, and manages to speak truths about war,
death and suffering, is foolishly believed to be superior to Nora Ephron's
latest polished turd (as I recall, something about how a woman empowers
herself by cooking--now *that's* novel!).
