More Da Vinci Nonsense

KXAN is reporting on more reports of controversy surrounding the release of the "Da Vinci Code." Catholic groups are pushing for disclaimers that point out that the film is not fact. Meanwhile people with a financial stake in the project are loving the attention. Producer Brian Glazer gave some typical song and dance about it fostering debate and what not, which is just shorthand for "free publicity."

I'm divided on this. On one hand, I'm really annoyed with producers who use religious controversy to generate publicity. However, I'm pretty annoyed with the Catholic groups that are protesting. Are you telling me that people who don't get that the blockbuster film starring Tom Hanks, that bears little resemblance to the history they were told all their lives are going to read the disclaimer? I think not. --Terrence Ryan

I want a disclaimer for Tom Hanks' haircut.
