I was over at Salon today and they have a column by Bill Maher. It's actually one of his rants from his show, but they edited it down into a column. I guess Salon thought it was good, or better yet, they're getting cheap.

The point of the column is that movies today suck because they dumb them all down so they don't offend kids. That is, for the most part, the truth. How many PG-13 movies have you seen that don't suck? It seems like R rated movies are becoming more rare even though life is always at least R rated. Do they even show NC-17 movies in theaters?

If you want to read the article, it's here:

Bill can be funny sometimes, even if he is a bit beat down since the conservatives got him fired for speaking his mind.
