"I was driving by Park Place Cinemas (which I still have a tendency to call "Cinema 7") in downtown Charleston Sunday between two hospital hearings and was thrilled when I saw Bill Maher's Religulous on the marquee! I never expected that I would be seeing that film come to Charleston, WV as I was just discussing it with JDB the other day who had caught this film when it opened in Pittsburgh on the same logic. JDB reviews this film much better than I could over at Infinity Ranch (so check it out) but here is my crack at it. Bill Maher likes to be irreverent and I appreciate that about him. He was one of the first who spoke out against the George W. Bush administration when their solution to 9/11 was to tell people to slap a flag sticker on their car and go to the mall as a way to help the nation ... now 7 years later look where we are. His book When You Ride Alone, You Ride With Bin Laden was brilliant and I used to watch his tv show when it was on Comedy Central"
