McCarthy

I just watched “Good night and Good Luck,” a movie about the red scare and McCarthism from the perspective of journalist Edward Murrow.  It was a very good movie but will probably not make much a dent in American media.  First I would suggest seeing Alan’s thoughts on the current administration.  Then I would suggest that all people everywhere begin getting involved in politics.  Not just settling for what has worked in the past or to simply say that the bad guy is always going to win. Instead, I would ask that people honestly consider what is right and try to live by it.  Murrow serves as a great example of someone who valued honesty and put their career on the line to save it.
