    A great interview last night. A sincere, humble genius.

    When I was at my 40th high school reunion a couple of years back it was amazing to see what became of those who were socially dominant during those student years. A lot ended up in terrible shape. Meanwhile a few seemingly insignificant or at that time taunted individuals, because of poor scholastic performance or athletic ineptness, have done very well.

    The other stories on 60 Minutes were also worth watching – a former Goldman
    Sachs trader and the Medicinal Marijuana industry in Colorado.

    When successful artists reach a certain point in their career it seems they are increasingly called upon to provide certain projects “for the good of the country.” Perhaps Spielberg has reached that point.
    I think it is simply silly for Spielberg to try to claim this movie is not political. Is it aimed at advancing Obama’s chances to win re-election? Well, the “buzz” surrounding the movie surely doesn’t hurt Obama’s persona – as Obama has consciously modeled himself on the myth of Lincoln along with FDR.
