The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.
– Jane Austen
Reactionary conservatives are smiling through the racial apocalypse. To them, race baiting is a joke, as ‘humorist’ Rush Limbaugh will tell you when he’s calling Mexicans ‘stupid.’ Or it’s a matter of semantics when they claim that Sonia Sotomayor is a ‘racialist’ which, far as I can tell, is the smooth jazz version of being a racist.

Technologically, I live in the 17th century; I don’t have a computer, I don’t have any of that stuff. I don’t look at the Internet, although I know people tell me I’m all over it. Somebody told me they Googled me, and they said I was mentioned two million times, some stupid thing… but who cares?

People like Bill Murray are incredible at what they do and are definitely my flavour. Although Will Ferrell, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ricky Gervais are also incredible actors. In their comedy, they make these stupid people feel so real. These guys are really setting the bar very high, and I learn as much from them about acting as I do about comedy.

During the run up to the Iraq War, Mike Farrell and I did get on television kind of frequently, but then they saw that that didn’t work. They really couldn’t bait us into being stupid, so they stopped. You know the mainstream media, corporate media, avoids ever giving anyone who has anything to say a platform, if they can possibly help it.
– James Cromwell
