It is 1990, isn't it? I wasn't sure after I read the article on Shane Black and all the other nice, young, white, male successful screenwriters. For some crazy reason, I figured that in 1990 we must have a few females and minority groups represented in one end of the business or another. But Greenberg's article did not mention one female or ethnic group in any facet of the industry--no writers, no agents, no producers, nobody. Was there no one who suggested to your writer that in the year 1990 he might be able to find a few newly successful female or minority writers? And if he couldn't, wouldn't that be a fact worthy of mention?
It was an interesting contrast to Robin Wright's excellent article on South Africa, to say the least.
