Thanks, but no thanks

March 21, 2004

After Kenneth Turan's moving comments on Ken Kesey's undeserved neglect at the March 1976 Oscars, he segues so smoothly into chiding Oscar winner Charlize Theron's failure this year to thank Aileen Wuornos for her crucial contribution that it just about takes your breath away.

There may have been similar lapses in the past. I saw "Schindler's List," and if the Oscar recipients said one word of appreciation for the Nazis I sure didn't hear it.

The lesson to be learned is obvious: I'd like to thank my late parents, my wife and kids, the pizza delivery man, and the stalwart crew that does my yard. And a special thanks to Mr. Turan for raising the consciousness of each and every one.
