Good news for Ang Lee!

No, I’m not talking about the seven Golden Globe nominations for the director’s film “Brokeback Mountain.” I’m talking about his good fortune that there is still someone running a theatre in the US in 2006 so troglodytic (yes, there is an adjectival form of troglodyte, I discovered) as to find his movie controversial enough to ban. The Salt Lake Tribune is having fun with the story, as is, I’m sure, Focus Features, the film’s distributor, even though their officals claim to be “incensed.” [Does Pat Robertson run that theatre?-ed. No, but he’s trying to buy it.]
