Another milepost on the road to perdition

In the not-too-distant past, the rap against Hollywood (well, one of many) was that movies, TV, and the people who bring them to us lived in a consequence-free fantasy world. Welcome to Upsidedownistan:

SHREVEPORT, La. - Police say actors Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright, along with members of a crew fiming an Oliver Stone movie, were arrested during a bar fight in Shreveport.

Shreveport police Sergeant Willie Lewis says Brolin, Wright and five others were arrested just after 2 a.m. Saturday at a club called the Stray Cat bar.

Had Brolin really been the guy he was playing, he would had James Baker around to make sure we would never hear about the arrest that never happened, that the people he hit were silenced, and the cops who booked him were bought off.

Of course, now that our Fratboy in Chief is about to exit, neither he nor his handlers see much need to muzzle his antisocial instincts, or give a damn about the consequences.
