More Hollywood doomcasting today, this time courtesy of the Associated Press. An AP/AOL poll released today found that 73 percent of adults prefer watching movies at home to trekking to the theater, 47 percent think movies are getting worse, and 69 (heh heh) percent think movie stars are "negative role models" for children. These aren't exactly surprising answers, but I can't help but get a little itchy about the questions. I mean, "role models"? When, exactly, were movie stars ever role models? Was it when Clara Bow was gang-servicing the USC football team? Or when Montgomery Clift was drinking himself to death?
