Tropic Thunder - The War is On.

Personally, I NEVER watch movies or television for that matter. But you don't have to be an active participant to fully understand the impact Hollywood has on pop culture. Since last week I've been reading articles and blog entries about a new movie called Tropic Thunder featuring Ben Stiller and Jack Black.

I've included a link to Dave Hingsburger's blog - he wrote a letter to Ben Stiller. As you read this post and the New York Times story on the right side of this blog - think of Nathan. Most of you don't know what it's like to have a child with special needs but in this case it's irrelevant - you understand the affect this Hollywood production is going to have on children - your children and mine.

Life With My Special K's blog has lines from the movie if you'd like additional reading. It's your choice to see this movie - I just hope you make the right one.

Ugh- I got a sick feeling just reading the phrase, never mind hearing it. I hope this issue gets the attention it demands!
