Letters: Hollywood's line

February 23, 2013

Re “Leave Hollywood to liberals,” Opinion, Feb. 19

For once, I agree with Jonah Goldberg: In the name of freedom, let Hollywood continue to produce whatever politically tinged films it wants. Whether it's shoot-em-up violence, drama, comedy or liberal high-mindedness, the viewers will decide what they want to watch without any coercion.

And yes, as Goldberg notes, Archie Bunker of “All in the Family” did have a bigger impact on Americans' values than his “meathead” son-in-law, but probably not for the reason he thinks. Archie's impact was because of the irony of his narrow-mindedness and racism amid an increasingly progressive and open-minded society.

Archie was really telling us the real truth about society. Art can be a funny thing.
