I knew there was a good reason I like Russell Crowe

During Q/A at Cannes for "Robin Hood", Crowe was asked what he thought Robin Hood might do in today's world. His response was both smart and pointed:
" . . . Crowe took a jab at the media, saying Robin Hood might have a whole new agenda if he were around today.
'Would he be political? Would he aim at certain figures and try to bring them down? Would his aim be economic? Would he be looking at Wall Street and the huge sums of money that people have been patting themselves on the back with, and the subprime mortgage collapse?' Crowe said.
'Or would he be looking at what you guys do for a living and realizing that the true wealth lies in the dissemination of information? And my theory would be, if Robin Hood was alive today, he would be looking at the monopolization of media as the greatest enemy.'"
Crowe clearly understands one of the main poisons destroying our society, I'm happy to say. Now, if we could only get our elected officials to figure this out, too . . .
