writes about nerdy things celebrates those things as an English teacher, and is the co-founder of the production house ADK MOGUL. He lives in the mountains. Thanks for reading; feel free to leave a message, and please don't ask if he's D(e)Press(e)d.
He understands that politicians can only act as well as we the people force them to. He’s had no shock-and-awe situation like the Great Depression to clear his way to the acceptance of radical programs or autocratic decrees (however populist they might be) and has had to grind out his agenda in an openly hostile Congress with some notably lackluster support from his own party. Though not having a broad mandate has never stopped the Republicans when they’ve held the White House, Obama has tried to do it the hard way and had only moderate success. He is, incredibly, perhaps less cynical than the rest of us.
Sayles is perhaps one of my favorite writer/directors living today. There wouldn’t be any Adirondack Mogul if he didn’t pioneer the independent film industry and he is a man who I greatly respect and adore.
