I guess they are out of touch

My editor at the Journal-Sentinel, Mabel Wong, has a nice observation on George Clooney's self-congratulatory homage to "the Academy" at the Oscars this year. They did award an Oscar to a black woman in 1939, but a total of four Oscars in the top four acting categories (out of more than 300 awarded) have gone to African-Americans. Way to speak truth to power, Hollywood.

Makes a community columnist proud.

Isn’t Hollywood in the business of make believe?
