Marilyn Monroe is an icon - maybe the biggest icon of the 20th Century. She became not only a sex symbol but also a symbol of America. We export culture to the rest of the world. What better a model of what is right about America than a beautiful and talented woman. And in Key West we will celebrate our right to free speech by watching a comedy about an evil man.
Just over Marilyn's right shoulder is the movie poster for "The Interview'. I don't recall having ever paid money to watch a Seth Rogen or James Franco movie, but I'm gonna watch this movie. The thing I appreciate about living in my adopted hometown is that you can be whoever you want to be in Key West. You can live the life you want to live here. Most of us that came here left someplace else that wasn't where we want to spend the rest of our lives. I for one have never taken well to having some other person tell me what I had to do or what I could not do. I hope people from all across America show up at their hometown theaters to give notice to the hackers and the North Koreans that we are free to decide for ourselves whether to watch a silly movie.
