What is Hollywood, you ask, dear children? A quorum of whores babbling endlessly on about fucking while the bordello is razed for a penny arcade -- Paul Bern

News of the all-too-very-clever Swiss ban of the minarets made me instantly think of that Helvetian fraud, J-L Godard, and not just because he was the first infidel hipster to wear the keffiyeh. It’s possible that that quicksilvery quality that lies behind the famous shit-eating grin is somehow a national trait. Passive Aggression as the key to the Swiss psyche? So-called Neutrality? Ask no questions, tell no lies banking? The Polanski thing? Hmmm….

Always canny, Godard has cut a deal to have Histoire(s) du Cinema broadcast from the remaining minarets when they are not otherwise being used.
