Our charming culture

We watched a few minutes of the Academy Awards yesterday. Not unpleasant, though they passed over the 2 WWII movies in the best picture category. Correct or no, we can’t say; we didn’t see them. But that’s part of the point. The winner in that major category had little to do with real life — underwater fish and deaf person: what’s up with that? Go look at the best picture list from 1930 to 1954. Any deaf fish? And BTW, how about that racist war criminal? Charming.

Miscellany: Kimball, Reid and critique, outer space. Help, Mr. Data! And oh yes Mr. Schumer, join the party.
