Being Rich...

does not excuse you from saying stupid things
For instance, Oliver Stone said this about his ol' pal Hitler

Director Oliver Stone’s upcoming Showtime documentary miniseries “Secret History of America” promises to put mass murderers such as Stalin and Hitler “in context.”
“Stalin, Hitler, Mao, McCarthy — these people have been vilified pretty thoroughly by history,” Stone told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour in Pasadena.
"We can’t judge people as only ‘bad’ or ‘good.’ Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and its been used cheaply. He’s the product of a series of actions. It’s cause and effect … People in America don’t know the connection between WWI and WWII … I’ve been able to walk in Stalin’s shoes and Hitler’s shoes to understand their point of view. (

You can't judge people as only bad or good? Sure you can, watch. Good director? movie "Natural Born Killers"? Bad director? "Alexander"? Very bad. See how that works.
I liked Mr.Stone up until just this moment for his body of work. Yeah, he was a wack a' doo, and a rich person who believes in Communism, (funny how that works MR. PENN I AM TALKING TO YOU!). I always thought he was eccentric, now I realize he is a psychotic egomaniac with a camera. "I've been able to walk in Hitler's shoes..." I hope suicide in a bunker quickly follows.
