    Our government is yet again marching us towards a war of choice in the Middle East and our non-partisan, peace-loving celebrities have gone missing since late 2008. We fear the worst. 1. Sheryl Crow LAST KNOWN PRE-2009 COMMUNICATION: “I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies.” — Sheryl Crow 2. Bruce Springsteen LAST KNOWN PRE-2009 COMMUNICATION: “War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.” — Bruce Springsteen
  • Nuns Thrown Under the Bus

    Last year, Entertainment Weekly magazine honored the arrival of a viciously anti-Catholic tilt on the FX show "American Horror Story: Asylum" by promoting how actress "Jessica Lange returns, this time as a terrifying nun." Bigotry sells -- big -- in Tinseltown. This year, after that "Asylum" season aired, Hollywood has honored the show again by showering it with 17 Emmy nominations. There's a reason Hollywood revels in Catholic-bashing. The Catholic Church best represents for them an ancient organization with a creed, which refuses to genuflect before the modern god of La La Land: untrammeled whims of lust and greed. Ryan...

  • Jessica Lange compares Iraq to Vietnam in Sarah Lawrence graduation speech

    YONKERS - During a Sarah Lawrence College graduation speech she apologetically admitted was filled with "random" thoughts in lieu of a theme, Oscar-winning actress Jessica Lange received thunderous applause from students after comparing America's troubled role in Iraq with its troubled role in Vietnam when she was their age. "History repeats itself," she told them today, repeatedly tucking her messy blonde hair behind her ears. "It is a heavy burden to inherit." Lange, whose daughter Hannah Jane Shepard was among the 435 seniors and graduate students in black caps and gowns at the liberal arts college's 79th commencement, urged the...

    Actress Jessica Lange used her commencement address at Marlboro College in Vermont on Sunday, from which her daughter was graduating, to denounce the Bush administration. The Rutland Herald reported that "she likened the war in Iraq to Richard Nixon's 'ruthless' bombing of Vietnam. She said executive orders and judicial appointments were eroding women's rights." The Brattleboro Reformer relayed how she charged: "'Once again, the poorest and most disadvantage are the ones being left behind,' she said, a play on the title of the Bush administration's education law, No Child Left Behind." ...Sunday afternoon commencement in Marlboro, Vermont, an excerpt from...

    NEW YORK - Oscar winner Jessica Lange was among a clutch of Hollywood stars Monday who helped deliver an anti-war petition - signed by more than one million people - to the US mission to the United Nations. Lange was joined by Ethan Hawke and Steve Buscemi in leading a small group of protestors to the mission in New York, where they handed over the petition which called for a tougher UN inspection regime in Iraq to replace the threat of military action against Baghdad. "I do not want my children to inherit the legacy of this war," Lange...

    Acting Patriotic We often hear from the "anti-war" crowd that "dissent is what America is all about." That by protesting against the war, they are not "unpatriotic," rather, they are the "true patriots." Not to mention the pat on the back they give to themselves because of their "bravery." Bravery has many definitions, "The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding go out to meet it." – Thucydides. More to the point, "Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless...

After winning a lifetime achievement honor last week at the Empire Film Awards in London, the British news service Ananova quoted Hoffman as accusing the Bush administration of "manipulating the grief of the country" after the events of September 11 and charging that "this war is about what most wars are about: hegemony, money, power and oil." In his "Best of the Web" column for ( ), James Taranto on Friday highlighted the story in Ananova, a...
