Half The Picture

   A lot of talk of boycotts lately, the most prominent recent one is over Clint Eastwood's movie "Million Dollar Baby". Certain religious groups have taken offense at a plot turn in this movie. The movie is fiction. Most of these groups are very strong supporters of Dubya's war in Iraq. His war is not fiction. Mr. Eastwood addresses a very personal moral dilemma in an intelligent, honest manner. Dubya addresses a modern global dilemma in a manner filled with hubris and dishonesty. Who is seeing only half the picture?
