Judging What They are By What They Did And Did Not Do

You can always figure somebody’s priorities, by what they do and do not do.

A case in point would be last night’s Oscar awards.

If I were to counsel Mr. O’Toole this morning, I would advise him not to worry about it much; the bottom line is they were never about acting and good filmmaking, anyway.
