I really just want to thank Bondo and Will for engaging with me and challenging me in some of the more "uncomfortable" realms such as politics and social issues. They're both very sharp and argue with a conviction that I appreciate. In my day-to-day here, I don't get a lot of opportunity to discuss politics with people who care enough to go beyond very canned talking points. I don't need to be agreed with (indeed, plenty of them agree with me, or at least default to me), just engaged. The engagement is everything.

It is good to see Will and yourself here as well to stir things up and generate discussion.

I do intend to get back to the Top 100 club so will trying to respond to a few of your films, just won't be during your month.
