Sixteen years ago, we saw Dan Quayle try to campaign against a TV character, Murphy Brown. He was widely ridiculed for it.
Now, in 2008, we have Milwaukee's own version of Dan Quayle, James T.:
In Superman Returns, the man of steel returns after a sabbatical to discover that Lois is a mother, and she has a son. His son...nice.
Now with the latest edition of the Indy saga, we find out our hero, the professor, the action archeologist, ran out on his pregnant girlfriend . . . left her at the altar. This time, the sidekick is his son.
Life is already messy. Why must our movie heroes reflect the culture?
I guess it’s the Culture, Stupid!
No, James, it's a movie. And furhermore, look around and clean up around yourself, before getting on the soapbox on how dirty the other side of the table is.
