Mrs Robinson, Paul Simon, and I, all check in on “The Interview”. What the heck?

Reflections on “The Interview”

When the president commented that he didn’t understand why Sony didn’t contact him, my first thought was:

Why didn’t Sony contact Dennis Rodman?

I hear that Paul Simon’s reworking the lyrics to “Mrs. Robinson” to:

“Where have you gone Dennis Rodman?
Kim Jong Un just hates “The Interview”. Whoo. Whoo. Whoo.
What’s that you say Dennis Rodman?
It’s up to you to save the day. Hey. Hey. Hey.”

I’m sure Dennis would have set the whole thing right.

Another thought that crosses my mind, aside from the fact that this is a free country and we have freedom of speech: is why the heck Sony didn’t just rewrite the picture to begin with, making it a fictitious country and a fictitious dictator.

Although if North Korea did hack Sony, and make threats against the company and its employees, all of us would agree this was wrong and violated international law, and demands should be made to right this – yet had Kim Jong Un, as I heard the idea floated recently, made a movie about assassinating our President’s daughters, would we have responded to North Korea’s film making content with kindness, understanding, and open arms? I highly doubt it.

Kim Jong Un and the North Korean government has every right to be upset with Sony for producing a provocative movie, culminating in an assassination attempt of their head of state. The same as we would had another country produced a movie advocating for the assassination of our president.

Lastly, it is difficult me to believe that Sony made no attempts to contact US intelligence and law enforcement agencies prior to taking any actions on their own. If it was me, I’d be calling everybody to check out what I should be doing and asking for protection.
