Gonna Watch Some TV

On Sunday night, at 9pm on HBO. I want to see ‘Recount’ because I saw the trailer and it looks good. Laura Dern as Katherine Harris with a Southern accent! I saw Dern in ‘Citizen Ruth’, a very cynical movie about abortion. She played a glue-sniffing pregnant woman. She was great.

I always regarded the 2000 elections as a coup and a national disgrace. Like New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the damage is largely unrepaired, with gaping holes in voting security, fairness and organization.

I’ll stay up past my bedtime for this. Just wish I could say to myself that ‘it’s only a movie’.

    Wish it were only a movie. Tonight and Monday HBO will air ‘Recount’–a dramatization of the coup of 2000. Eight years later the nightmare continues. Eight years later our elections are no more restored than New Orleans after Katrina….
