Norman Oder article in the Times

Norman Oder has an op-ed (according to the Times it's an essay) in today's Times.

UPDATE- forgot to include the link to the Times "balancing" puff piece on ratner

here is a link to discussion of his op-ed on - this is typical of the discourse- and i thought it might be interesting for those of you who have followed the story from a distance.

In film news- We are finally digging into the final sections of footage- the ground breaking. Yesterday we viewed a long assembly of the footage and it was very powerful.

On July 9th- we will be part of a kickstarter film fest- in conjunction with our very good friends at rooftop films. At that event we will likely show the end of the film- we'll certainly send out an update as it comes closer.
