For the Baby Boomer, a good weekend read

". . . ideology is the enemy of problem-solving"

From an interesting interview with Steven Soderbergh:

One thing I do know from making art is that ideology is the enemy of problem-solving. Nobody sits on a film set and says, “No, you can’t use green-screen VFX to solve that because I’m Catholic.” There’s no place for that, and that’s why I’ve stopped being embarrassed about being in the entertainment industry, because I’m surrounded by intelligent people who solve problems quickly and efficiently, primarily because issues of ideology don’t enter into the conversation.

Given the chance I'd ask Mr. Soderbergh this: So why are so many of your entertainment industry colleagues such jerks about natioinal politics?
