a good idea and an interesting question

from "mel gibson: the speed of a scandal" (free to read but registration required) in tuesday's new york times:
    On Monday, Hope Hartman, a spokeswoman for Disney’s ABC television network, said the company was dropping its plans to produce a Holocaust-themed miniseries in collaboration with Mr. Gibson.
that sounds like a pretty good idea.

an interesting perspective from free range librarian, who asks:
    The American Library Association has clear anti-discrimination policies. We've known about his homophobia for years, but not taken action. Will we also tolerate his anti-Semitism?
