Irony Is Not Dead - The Defeatists Announce!!!

"The Motion Picture Assn. of America has censored a poster advertising a film about the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The image that ran afoul of the MPAA is tame by the standards set by the amateur photographers of Abu Ghraib. It shows a man hanging by his handcuffed wrists, with a burlap sack over his head and a blindfold tied around the hood. It appeared in advertisements for the new film "The Road to Guantanamo," a documentary with some reenacted scenes that follows the fate of three British men imprisoned at Guantanamo for more than two years. Eventually they were released, with no charges ever filed against them."

[ cf and here i thought irony was dead ]
Some Days Just Being Alive is Way More Complicated than it seemed.
