Ok. I can't take any more of "World Have Your Say". Whoever decided to plug this into your schedule should be looking for other work. What was wrong with just repeating "These Days". You do it with other shows.

The Best Movies Of 2009 (And A Couple Of The Worst)

My friend and I listened to your best/worst movies of 2009 segment on your program today. We cannot believe that Scott would select "Precious" as the worst film of 2009. I'm not going to call him a racist because that would be simplifying the argument. Scott says that the film is nothing but a collection of well used stereotypes. Please tell us the last movie you viewed where the protagonist is fat, black and unattractive. The film does not have a generic uplifting ending. It is true that Precious eventually escapes the abuse of her mother and father, but the legacy that she takes from them is an HIV positive life. The homosexuals (lesbians) in the film are not stereotypically presented. None of them wear hiking boots, none are motorcycle enthusiasts, and none are shown hanging out in dyke bars. In fact, they are the heroes of the film. I can't remember the last film I saw where lesbians were portrayed in such a positive light. I would like to hear Scott's rebuttal to this post.
