i had hope

i had hope that on inauguration night all, or at least one, of the major tv networks would corral Mel Brooks into hosting a primetime, uncut, presentation of his 1974 masterpiece, "Blazing Saddles", so that americans could all laugh like hell at themselves, together. in the way hoped for when the film was made 36 years ago.

some things change more slowly than others.
