The director, Steve McQueen is not an "African-American." He is British.

Re: “Triangle Soundpainting Orchestra at The Pinhook

Wrong. No clarinet. No guitar. There was, however, an oboe and ukulele.

Re: “I.O.U.S.A.

Hey David. I think you're being a little bit too neutral by using the words "credible military." As I'm sure you know, the U.S. could cut regular military spending by 75% and still spend more than any other nation. Making this cut--along with ending the oil wars--would go a long ways towards balancing the budget. Many nations borrow to fund their operations, and the U.S., still possessing the world's reserve currency, could certainly handle the modest debt left after it abandoned its insane military addiction. I would have used the words "maintain an imperial military."

Re: “Q&A with Donald Saari about election math

This is a discussion that we must be having. Continuously. Every day. All the time. There are changes we could make on the state level that would make our electoral system more democratic. Since it seems highly unlikely that an overhaul of our byzantine 18th century republic will occur at the federal level, any progressive change will have to occur state by state, in tiny steps. To ask to join the modern world by switching to a parliamentary system is too much. Voters who are Green, Libertarian, or Populist are completely shut out of the present system. Liberal voters are marginalized since the Democratic Party is at best a pro-business centrist party with libertarian stances on certain social issues. The Indy should start a regular column to promote discussion of electoral reform.

Re: “Deniable torture and viable fetuses in Taxi and 4 Months

Regarding Taxi: I saw this film last year at Full Frame, and I remember that in that version, Gibney presented evidence that not only Cheney, but Bush himself was actively encouraging the use of torture...
