I had heard that Robert Downy Jr left an interview that became "creepy" relative to his drug use history. I had not heard that he had said:
“you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal.”I HAD heard that Mel Gibson helped him beat his addiction, and that he remains friends with Gibson -- something not particularly allowable in Hollywood.
The point of the article is that Hollywood, increasingly that nation and even the world (the weird interview was in England) continues to become increasingly intolerant of ANY divergence from 100% liberal orthodoxy. The "Thou Shalt Nots" of the politically correct left get more stringent every day.
The article isn't badly written -- although focuses a bit too much on how the author "really doesn't care" about Downy. Worthy of at least a scan.
The blog doesn't look too bad either ... may have to poke around there a bit.
