This Day in Blogging History: Ebert on reports of mass killings; Tiny DIY dino skeletons; Saddam's Frazetta dealer


Probably the best and most on-point review by Ebert.

I disagree COMPLETELY with Ebert. This is one of those things that really GRINDS MY GEARS (insert Peter pic). It minimizes every tragedy into: “They just wanted to be famous, if we pretend it didn’t happen, people will stop committing attrocities”. It complete minimizes any real or perceived circumstances that the perpetrator experienced. Some of us who like to be informed would like to know if Johnny Killer was just a run-of-the-mill nutcase, or if he had been persecuted by the cops, or whatever the case was. I like being informed. If you don’t want to watch the news because they talk about news, then don’t watch it. Don’t force the rest of us to live in your uninformed society.

That story is an absolute joy. Can’t believe I missed that first time round.
