Police force Daryl Hannah out of a tree
  • Sigh. Here is what really happened with that property. In 1986 the city took the land from Ralph Horowitz through the process of eminent domain, in order to build a giant incinerator and recycling plant. Various environmental and community groups blocked that development. Horowitz then went to court and argued that he should get his land back, since it was eminent domained for a purpose that was abandoned. After many, many years, the courts finally ruled, quite reasonably, that he was right. A government cannot take away someone's property just because it feels like it. Not your property, not mine, not Horowitz's. If the city wasn't going to build the incinerator, then it had no right to take the land. In a very real sense, the return of the property to the owner was a triumph of justice and of the individual over the bureaucracy.
  • Here's the problem. The city of Los Angeles, thinking it owned the land legally, designated it for other use. Being the financial geniuses that they are, they managed to earn a whopping one dollar per year from the valuable property by allowing its use by a food bank. The City eventually sold it to the harbor authority, which just ignored it for years, and allowed the gardeners to develop their project.
  • Along comes Horowitz, now the rightful owner again, and says that the farmers have to leave. The city authorities have no choice but to enforce his rights.
  • But the garden is a wonderful little oasis in the midst of an area which needs green space. Most people seem to feel it should be preserved more or less as it is instead of being converted to more ugly warehouses.
  • There was a solution. For some reason, all the high-powered celebrities seem to have ignored it. The developer was willing to sell the property (well, 3/4 of it) back to the farming co-op for $16 million dollars. Instead of perching in trees and defying the law in a quixotic and hopeless protest, the celebrities could have done something which would really have worked - they needed to help the gardeners raise $16 million dollars. Or get together and loan them the money personally. Or co-sign for a bank loan!
  • It is now too late. Because the celebrities and activists tried to make the legitimate landowner into the bad guy in the case, and attacked him personally, he is now so fed up with them that he is unwilling to sell at any price, even though the L.A. mayor says that the co-op now has met the offer of $16 million.
  • Catch the irony? If they never had protested in the first place, the land would now be back in the hands of the farmers and gardeners!

Robert Kennedy claims that Bush stole the 2004 election, and Colbert pretends to disagree.
  • Colbert did ask a ballsy question, but then let Kennedy get by with a bullshit answer.
  • Colbert asked, "Which was easier - for Bush to steal Ohio in 2004 or for your Uncle Jack to steal Illinois in 1960?"
  • Kennedy responded, "Both were wrong, but Ohio swung the election and JFK would still have won the election if he had lost Illinois."
  • Colbert let that slide, but his correct response should have then been, "But Illinois was not the only state JFK stole. The Democrats stole both Texas and Illinois, and that combination DID swing the election."
  • Colbert was on the verge of raising an excellent point. It may be true that President Bush stole the 2004 election from John Kerry (I have not studied this, but it certainly seems possible), but it is certainly ironic that it has become a crusade for a guy whose Uncle Jack stole the 1960 election by out-tricking ol' Tricky Dick himself.

The Weekend Warrior's predictions for the upcoming weekend
  • There are four new releases this week, and he slots them in 2-3-4-5, with none of them strong enough to unseat Cars.
  • The top twelve did $129.5m last year, and his predictions call for about an 18-19% improvement over that. If accurate, it will represent a step above the level of the last five weeks, none of which have included double-figure improvement. His total does seem reasonable, in that it is just a hair higher than last week's actual.
  • My observation has been that weeks with many new entries are usually disappointing compared to weeks with a real powerhouse champion.
  • The wild card for this week is Al Gore's movie, which expands to 500 theaters and could sneak onto the leaderboard.

This week's movie (about 3000 screens): The Lake House - 50% positive reviews.
  • Mixed reviews, tending toward positive. Ebert and Roeper gave it two thumbs up. Variety and Hollywood Reporter were unenthusiastic, but they did offer some compliments.
