Julian Mann, the difficult ingesting, preening, and sexually provocative megastar of the television sitcome Richard the Nerd, feels stuck at the horns of a hindrance: may still he be targeting his occupation, that is at the slide after an unseemly bout of fisticuffs on the BAFTA awards; or following his baser instincts and bedding each younger lady in sight?
His dual goals of comedian immortality and a penthouse flat jam-packed with booze and younger versions appear to be pissed off via his spouse and kids; through Tom, his wife's ally from college days, a pretentious 'National Theatre Player' who seems to be competing with Julian at the small sreen and within the bed room; through the tax guy, who's chasing him for sixty thousand kilos; and via Lillith, a psychotic fan, and member of an odd Herculean cult whose eight-year cycle of loss of life and regeneration may perhaps augur Julian's coming near near nemesis. ..

I’d like to see a little more of that anger from people now. Anytime we find out that the fight against terrorism is being shortchanged by politics and greed we should bare our teeth at Washington. We should have done it a few times already, and we haven’t. For example, when in December, 2001, President Bush said “civilization is at stake,” that was just one week after announcing that if Congress asked for more than the $40 billion earmarked to fight terrorism, he’d veto it. So, while pledging $140 billion to a no-strings-attached tax give-back to corporate campaign donors and $5 billion to an airline bailout, we capped “civilization” off at a non-negotiable $40 billion.
Yes, some people will get jailed and even killed for speaking out, but change comes no other way. Bloodless revolutions are rare. Somebody has to stand up and produce a play as offensive to Allah as Piss Christ was to anyone in America who lives above Canal Street. Somebody has to do Chris Rock’s act for Arabs. The first duty within any group is to police itself. Right now, the Muslim world is like a neighbor family who have a rotten teenager named Fundamentalist Terrorism living in their house.
You don’t have to be Mannix to figure out maybe we should have looked into why this guy had a one-way ticket. But we didn’t on September 11, and I don’t see evidence it’s gotten much better since. Our front line of airport defense can’t tell a Mexican from an Arab any helter than they can tell a dirty bomb from a disc player—anyone darker on the color chart than George Hamilton gets pulled out of line more. ) A Secret Service for the people would be much like the actual Secret Service: a well-dressed, well-paid, elite unit—part soldier, part policeman, part detective, and part psychiatrist—who, like the president’s posse, realize there’s no time to stop and search everyone individually and no sense in directing their attentions randomly.
