I don’t really know much about James Cameron, other than his ability to make modestly entertaining movies which earn astonishing amounts of money.  In particular, I’d never thought much about his views on the big issues of the day, such as global warming and the sanity of Glenn Beck.

However, following the wonderful outburst described in The Hollywood Reporter, (including a somewhat NSFW video), I have to count myself as one of his greatest admirers.  I shall go out and see Avatar immediately, if not sooner.

Many people have been wondering if Richard Dawkins’ new British TV series “The Enemies of Reason” will make it to the USA.  The first of the two parts, subtitled “Slaves to Superstition”, broadcast on Channel 4 on Monday, August 13,  is now up on Google Video.

Thanks to Orac for the tip  Orac’s initial assessment : “a blistering attack on the irrationality that is so common in our society”.  Sounds wonderful.  Episode 2 – “The Irrational Health Service” will be shown next Monday, August 20.
