A friend of mine recently pointed out what I should have seen for myself: conservatives won’t change. So, while Bowling for Columbine is great entertainment for open-minded folks, it won’t make an impact on the folks who most need to see it.
If you’re lucky you may still be able to catch this film in theaters, but everybody should take a moment to view this clip of the cartoon that appears in the film: A Brief History.
A small side story to this is the Wilton Town Hall Theater. It’s an old building that really does include the town hall (and police station!) along with a two screen movie theater. It’s a nice place and I was happy to find it.
