The End Of Movies?
I find Russ Douthat’s politics repulsive, but his cultural commentary is typically thoughtful and on the nose: We Aren’t Just Watching the Decline of the Oscars. We’re Watching the End of the Movies
We all know “facts” that persist in the popular mind long after they are disproved. “Only 10% of Americans have passports” was one of these. Turns our the actual figure is 40%; still low compared to Canada’s 66 and the U.K.’s 76. No wonder we’re so parochial.
How does one pronounce that guy's name? Do-that? Doot-hat? Dow-that? Doubt-hat? dow-Thay?
I usually just settle by calling him "Asshat." It captures his essence.
