Not Soon Enough

Liberals across the land are yelling about United 93
When the trailer played before "Inside Man" last week at the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, audience members began calling out, "Too soon!" In New York City, where 9/11 remains an open wound, the response was even more dramatic. The AMC Loews theater on Manhattan's Upper West Side took the rare step of pulling the trailer from its screens after several complaints. "One lady was crying," says one of the theater's managers, Kevin Adjodha. "She was saying we shouldn't have [played the trailer]. That this was wrong ... I don't think people are ready for this."

Wow who would ever guess that people in those place would be against seeing a film that tells the truth about 9/11.
One of the great lines from the Newsweek story about this is:

We're about to find out. "United 93" is the first feature film to deal explicitly with the events of September 11, 2001, and is certain to ignite an emotional debate before and after it opens on April 28. Is it too soon? Should the film have been made at all? More to the point, will anyone want to see it?
Wait, what about the greatest documentary ever made? Wasn't Fatboy's POS the first, and only movie that would show the truth about 9/11?
Or am I confusing it with what I'm sure will be a fair and balance POG from Oliver "stop attacking ME. I'm smarter then you" Stone?

In response to the audiences in Hollywierd, NO it isn't too soon. We should have had movies reminding us what happened that day already in the movie theaters. just like we should have seen video of the WTC buildings being hit every day on the national news.
