Ang Lee up for sainthood, ceremony TBA

Did anyone harbor a doubt that anyone but Ang Lee would win the Director's Guild Award?

I'm still trying to figure out why it's deemed to have "taken courage" to make Bareback Mounthim.

No, courage would be needed to make a less-than-laudatory movie about Islam.

Now if only Ang Lee would have made the Incredible Hulk homosexual he would have gotten rave reviews.

The abovementioned Bill Handel on KFI-640 has two alternate titles his show used for Brokeback:

"Bareback Mountain"
"Pokeback Mountain"

Pass it on.

Glad he didn't steal my "Bareback Mounthim."

Something I've noticed about such Profiles in Courage:

It takes a lot of courage to do something that gets you fawned over by all The Right Celebrities, invited on all The Right TV Programs, and praised as a god, doesn't it?

Yes, there was a movie about this level of superhuman guts: True Grit, starring John Wayne.
