Hollywood, William Goldman and The Stimulus Plan

We’ve all heard about the connection between H’wood and DC and heard the endless jokes (“Washington is Hollywood for ugly people”… badda-bing, badda-boom), but being in the nation’s capital for a few days on my book promo tour, I have been struck by a more disturbing parallel: William Goldman’s famous apothegm about the movie business – “Nobody knows anything” – seems to apply equal well to our government. And that’s all well and good for H’wood (it’s only entertainment, after all), but this is the fate of our nation – even the world. Sad to say but…


“No one knows anything” about the trillion-dollar stimulus plan. Now that’s scary.

A kind of depressed panic – if that makes sense – seems to have overtaken this city. Not a person I have met seems to have confidence in anything, except that everything is a mess. I haven’t heard one word about “Hope” and “Change” around here, but it may be I’ve been talking to the wrong people. To be honest, I hope that’s true.
