Say it isn't so, Mamet?
Seems David Mamet has had quite a change of heart these past few years, as he rails against "liberalism" in his new book, The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture. This is something you would expect from Regnery Publishing, not an award-winning playwright and film maker who has given us some very thought-provoking plays and films over the years. David Ulin writes in his review that most of Mamet's arguments are all too easy to refute, leaving me to wonder what "secret knowledge" he is privy to that the rest of us are not, or if this is dementia setting in early.
