Since maybe some of you don't have the patience for a three-hour telecast, here are my reflections on the event.

First, the monologue. Generally, it was funny. Politically speaking, it was reasonably balanced. During his monologue, Chris Rock did a good ten-minute riff on Bush. ("Just imagine if you work at the Gap…and when you close up for the day, your register is $75 trillion dollars short.") The audience seemed to love it (surprised?). He did a very mild jab at Michael Moore, but only after saying nice things about his movie.

He also said some nice things about the film "The Passion of the Christ," and Jesus in general, to provide balance. And on a more personal level, if he ever zinged anybody, like Cuba Gooding, he managed to turn it around on himself before he was done.

The Corporation

[The "Buzz"]
There's an interesting documentary making the rounds on and offline, called The Corporation, which was raved about at Cannes. I am not sure if it ran much in the states, but it's that type of movie that is not likely to get much commercial attention even though it's scarier than any horror movie you'd see, and more dramatic than any drama.

This is the first of a series we're launching here at BSAlert called "Essential Factoids". The idea is to call attention to something or someone important that most people know little about.

In this case, do you know who Raymond Scott was? Why should he be remembered?

Justice Dept. Censors Supreme Court!

In what appears to be a mind-numbing wheelbarrow of irony, the web site Smoking Gun says, "Anybody who has read many official documents—including those making headlines in the last year or more—has seen plenty of redactions (those portions that are blacked out or otherwise made unreadable). This, we're told, is for legitimate reasons, such as "national security" or "protecting intelligence sources and methods." But now we have absolute, incontrovertible proof that the government also censors completely innocuous material simply because they don't like it."

Read on for the gory details of just how polarized the government can be.

Probably just as well. No need wasting air time on a few splinter groups of a half-dozen hippies dancing.
