H IS FOR HATRED, HOLLYWOOD,

H IS FOR HATRED, HOLLYWOOD, AND HYPOCRISY: In the Bay Area, you certainly see a fair number of bumper stickers that read “Hate Is Not A Family Value” (usually written in 72 point Helvetica bold, in all caps, on a fluorescent neon background, for maximum emphasis). But for some folks on the left coast, hate seems to be just fine.

UPDATE (12/01/03): Aaron Russo, the producer of Trading Places is quoted as saying, “Iraq was not a threat to me, and personally I’d be more afraid of George Bush than I would of Saddam Hussein,” he said.”

Of course, Russo wouldn’t be the first Hollywood tycoon to turn a blind eye towards a mass-murder.
