After the parade yesterday afternoon (Hi Jay! Hi!), we went down to see Fahrenheit 9/11. (I laughed. I cried. I got a little queasy. I laughed some more. I cried some more.) On the way out my friend N. said this: Didn’t I read somewhere that Loews is owned by The Carlyle Group?
Yup, it’s true. There’s a decent blog post here discussing why this matters – in case you’re one of the 8 or 9 people in Seattle who read this and haven’t seen the movie yet. And if you are, you might think about going to the Neptune instead.
Aside: things I loved about seeing the movie here in Seattle? The way a guy down in the front row let how a horror movie scream the first time Condi appeared on screen and the way everyone burst in to applause when our guy Jim McDermott showed up.
