How the Times Have Changed
I was watching American Movie Classics today and happened upon 'PT109', a dramatization of John F Kennedy's wartime experience. To be honest, I wasn't much interested in watching it but was struck by the idea of how times have changed. Could you imagine a dramatization of George W's skipping out on the National Guard?! His film might be somewhere on the level of 'Revenge of the Nerds' or 'Animal House'. Had Kerry won the election maybe we would have another PT109 or 'Mutiny on the Bounty'. Maybe even a dramatization of Al Gore creating the internet...
