After our meeting, I spent some time in conversation with a close friend. This fellow is an outstanding artist and a very dedicated, honorable gentleman. His activities in the movement to block the proposed flouridation and subsequent poisoning of our drinking water by the Los Angeles City Council has been an inspiration to me.
During our discussion, he made an interesting remark. He began to explain to me the "fundamental stupidity of corruption" - it kills the environment that supports it.
That's one of the reasons why I feel so optimistic about the future of our industry and our art. The corruption that we are currently forced to deal with will eventually destroy the environment in which it thrives.
It will destroy itself while the adversity it has caused makes us stronger.
