"You're one of Fred Smith's, I expect."

A CEI short film, "The Silence of the Regulated," in which a Dr. Lecter asks: "You know what you look like to me with your good perfume and blunt white paper? You look like a libertarian." Having worked for Fred Smith, I found this quite amusing. Your mileage may vary. (LvIP)

one of many:
amusing but the production qualities were too low, if the CEI intends to produce more of these short movies they really need to get an NEA grant for independent filmmaking or at least attend one of the AFI Sundance seminars on independent filmmaking which have been bankrolled by the NEA.

I have a grammatical nit to pick, it should be "Your mileage may vary."

Will watch the film later.

It should be "lend us your views..." and "enthrall us with your acumen."

Still, I enjoyed it.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
