I was both amused, irritated and touched by the following…..

I suppose Jamaica Bay is cleaner than the Ganges, but I’m not sure.

I’ll go along with amused and irritated but I don’t see anything touching in this.

Yeah, I was touched SL. I was touched not by their beliefs but by the fact that many of them are prepared to reconsider and to look at the effects of their traditional practices. They didn’t immediately announce a Jihad or fatwa or whatever they call it and threaten to blow the joint up. I wish all religions were as open to reason as some of these peopel seem to be.

That wasn’t Scorsese’s best film, but Daniel Day Lewis was quite good.
