I came back from vacation and saw the following statement from a highly influential film critic who works for the Tribune organization. This was written on her blog, which I contribute some comments on a regular basis; http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/movies/2006/11/its_official.html
Look, I'm not saying that people who like Ray Romano are stupid. I'm simply saying that they're SO stupid, they shouldn't be allowed to breathe the same air I do.

With my positive comments about Ray Romano on her blog, given my Thanksgiving tributes to "Everybody Loves Raymond" dated November 20 http://cinemadave.livejournal.com/131478.html AND dated November 26 http://cinemadave.livejournal.com/132692.html; I see that Miss Flowers would prefer to asphyxiate this fan of Ray Romano.
Then again, I might not have much to fear, for elitist comments mentioned above proves that she breathes oxygen from another planet.
In 1999, when I started writing for "The Observer" http://www.deerfieldbeachobserver.com/page/page/914677.htm, my goal was to inform readers about movies. Even when I do not like the movie, I've done my best not to offend the sensibilities of people. I might not like "The Lawrence Welk Show, " but I appreciate the joy that program brings to so many people for over forty years.
Until my vacation, I've been feeling burned out by most movies as of late, but being labeled "SO stupid" by a mainstream movie critic inspired me to keep writing movie reviews.
It is time for this Dave to load his sling shot and shoot down some Goliaths.
