Balls

It's nice to see the left wing respond with some balls for a change -- of course, it helps when Bill Clinton comes out swinging, which isn't often. I'm referring to the controversy over THE PATH TO 9/11, ABC-TV's five-hour, commercial-free ad for the Republican party, commemmorating a national tragedy.

ABC/Disney is still planning to air this film, which includes wholly fabricated scenes designed to blame 9/11 on the Clinton administration. I'm not usually much of an e-mail activist, but this is a really important cause, and ABC's clearly sweating. You can make your feelings known here and/or here .

Special credit to Scholastic, which quickly pulled its affiliated lesson plan from its website and replaced it with this note from the chairman, linking to a new lesson plan that encourages teachers to discuss with their students the reasons for the controversy. And thanks to PW Daily for the heads-up on that.

I promise my next post will be about Wonder Girl or Streaky the Super-Cat or something...

Yeah, for some reason this topic really had "blog legs." I think part of it is a "don't mess with my teevee" mentality, but most of it is just anger at the timing of it all, and the gall these people have to try and rewrite history as it's still happening.

Stuart, when you post about Streaky, can you call that one "Balls," too?
