Daily Thoughts 9/26/2010
I watched the new film of Where The Wild Things Are which was released to dvd in 2010. It is a live action film. I very much liked the monster costumes. My favorite was the minotaur. The film was about anger and being wild. Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak was one of my favorite books as a child.
I also read some more of Third World America by Arianna Huffington. I liked the line, "There are no lobbyists for the American Dream," on p.133. She argues that there are too many lobbyists and moneyed interests for change to effectively take place for the better in congress. Arianna Huffington also describes how infrastructure from bridges, roads, dams, electricity to broadband internet is falling apart and costing the United States leadership in business. The book mainly attacks republicans, but also does not spare some democrats incompetence. It is very much a call for change.
