Takes on Mel Gibson

I haven't commented on this, and I'm not sure I'm doing so now. However, there is an interesting story in today's LA Times on the reactions of his friends. Having had the bitter experience of dealing with alcoholics, I certainly question the notion that "it's the disease speaking."

Mona Charen has an interesting take --- and probably gets a lot closer to the truth, save for her comments about Steven Spielberg's Munich, with which I take some exception --- here, as well.

UPDATE: Having picked up David Horowitz's Anti-Chomsky Reader a few weeks ago, and having just delved into it, it occurs to me that many of the same people who are savaging Mel Gibson for his anti-Semitic rant--- contrary to the man that Jewish friends like Dean Devlin describe --- positively lionize Noam Chomsky, who is a an anti-Semite of biblical proportions and a Holocaust denier, too.
