“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Art News: Hallelujah, Phil’s Back

The NewsBy Rosemarie Jackowski

Phil Donahue was fired from MSNBC several years ago when he was the only talk show host to oppose the war in the lead up to Shock and Awe. It seems that opposing any war is not good for business - but we have all known that ever since General Smedley Butler wrote his classic, "War is a Racket". That was in 1935.

Brian Lamb interviewed Phil on C-Span on March 23. Phil is as edgy as ever. He has not lost any of his spunk or charm. For the past three years Phil has been hard at work producing a documentary. This might possibly be the best depiction of the Iraq war yet to be filmed.

A complete review of the work will be forthcoming, but in the meantime all should be alerted. This project was funded by Donahue; therefore, the advertising campaign might not be competitive in today's entertainment market. Unless there is a public demand, the film might not be shown in all locations. In order to see this film, a little persuasion at the local theater could be helpful. Often requesting a film to the theater management will bring results. ...

This is not just entertainment. It is history that has been recorded for current and future generations. The film should be shown in every classroom. Every mother who has a son or daughter should see the film. No one should sign up to enlist in the military without first seeing this film. Every voter who supports or opposes the war must see it.

The leading character in the documentary is Tomas Young, an injured Iraq War veteran- paralyzed from the chest down. Have you ever seen a mother catherize her adult son? Have you ever heard a young bride describe what is necessary for sexual activity with a husband who is paralyzed? The blue pills don't work on someone with serious injuries. These difficult scenes were captured with perfection. Somehow they were filmed leaving nothing to the imagination but done in a sensitive and respectful way. Phil got it just right. The film editing was masterful. All who worked on the film are to be congratulated.

See this film and then go home and look at the war photos on the Robert Fisk War Photos web site. The Fisk photos show what we did to the civilian population in Iraq.

War is not glamorous - it is not romantic- and it is not necessary. In war there are no winners. War is hell. Just ask Tomas Young.

The name of the Documentary is "Body of War" - soon to be in a theater near you - but only if you request it.
