Monday Night at Morton’s
I just was introduced to Ben Stein’s “Monday Night at Morton’s” column on E! Online. Pity it is after he finished its run. A nice snip from the last column: “Beyond that, a bigger change has happened. I no longer think Hollywood stars are terribly important. They are uniformly pleasant, friendly people, and they treat me better than I deserve to be treated. But a man or woman who makes a huge wage for memorizing lines and reciting them in front of a camera is no longer my idea of a shining star we should all look up to.” Very moving and, surprisingly enough, humble. His penultimate column is also worth a look.
