interesting comments by famous people

I’ve been silently (so far) watching the debate over Mel Gibson’s upcoming movie, The Passion. What is interesting for me to see is how an experienced, long-time professional like Mr. Gibson handles criticism from the media.

Here’s from Dubai Photo Media:

Gibson is not averse to dishing out venomous attacks of his own, however, with one target Frank Rich, a New York Times columnist, who implied that Gibson’s father was “a Holocaust denier”.

“I want to kill him,” Gibson said of the columnist. “I want his intestines on a stick. I want to kill his dog.”

I’m certain I don’t have to worry anymore about the degree of sensitivity with which he’s handled possible antisemitic passages in the upcoming movie. I simply have to get ready to deal with these passages.
