Well, I was glad you did, since I don't live in NYC or read the Times, but
was wondering what would happen.

In any public forum, useful utterances are often likely to be met by the
odd idiosyncratic angry response. But to let these solitary critiques lead
to a silencing of public utterance would be tragic. I have no idea why Jim
Carlile feels the need to express his views on NYCs regulations in such a
hostile way -- the notion that the experimental filmmakers have now fucked
things up for the shoestring indie makers is a straw man argument if ever
I've heard one. But I don't see why anyone on FRAMEWORKS should take any
notice of Carlile's bile at all at this point. Apologies Sam, but by
showing the rant affected you, you may have encouraged more of same.
