Billy Ray, who directed Shattered Glass has a new film about a more dangerous kind of fraud: Robert Hanssen of the FBI.


I'm not terribly comfortable with palpable-sense-of-ill-usage blogging either, although I do realize that it's not inappropriate for people who have genuinely been ill used.

It's not, to say the least, in my experience, a purely male habit.


I can think of a few bloggers who this reminds me of. There are a number of blogs I've 'broken up with', some of whom I've stayed in touch with and some I don't. When John A from Am*ric*bl*g goes on yet another aggrieved rant about some trivial slight to the gay community and demanding a boycott for this and a boycott for that it just makes me tired and irritable. Throwing around weight works best when you're in a high weight class. That said, props to him for his work on Guckertgate.


Hmm. Seems pretty obvious who you're talking about, but maybe I just don't read enough blogs to have more than one plausible candidate.

Good post, and good reminder of yet another movie I still haven't seen but should.
