"You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out." - William Tecumseh Sherman

  Don't Judge a Book by its Cover...
When I first heard that a movie about sex researcher Alfred Kinsey was being released, I shrugged. I hadn't heard much about the man, but what I had heard indicated he was something of a hedonist and a pervert. And so naturally I had no interest in seeing the movie, even when it is released for rental. However, I will probably rent it now.

I was reading the blog Ego, one of my regulars; the post in question was Abortion is pro-life, a position I've agreed with for several years. So I proceeded to read through the post, and came across a link to another site I sometimes frequent, Box Office Mojo, which provides quality reviews of movies. The link in question was to the movie Kinsey.

Now, several questions popped into my head simultaneously. What does Kinsey have to do with abortion? Why would Ego link to a review of this movie, which I thought (without good reason) was probably garbage. So, curious, I followed the link, and I must say that the review has convinced me to at least see the movie. The gist of the review is that, whatever his flaws, Kinsey should be remembered for his courage in fighting against puritanical Christianity's dogma that sex is sinful and is not worthy of any form of study. That is a theme that rings true for me, and a context in which I can appreciate the man's work.

Go read the review for yourself, and make an informed decision before you decide to pass this movie by:
