Hollywood: Hey, this Obamacare thing is going to be pretty costly and complicated for us

I have a feeling this is headed the direction of the New York gun-control legislation, which found a surprising, hilariously hypocritical critic after its passage in Hollywood: ALBANY The sweeping gun control measure signed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and hailed by Democratic leaders has a surprising critic: Hollywood. Officials in the movie and television industry say the new laws could prevent them from using the lifelike assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that they have employed in shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and films like The Dark Knight Rises. Twenty-seven film and television projects, including programs like Blue Bloods and Person of Interest, are now in production in New York State using assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, according to the Motion Picture Association of America. Industry workers say that they need to use real weapons for verisimilitude, that it would be impractical to try to manufacture fake weapons that could fire blanks, and that the entertainment industry should not be penalized accidentally by a law intended as a response to mass shootings. Well, we certainly wouldnt want any law-abiding citizens with no intent to kill anyone penalized accidentally by a law intended as a response to mass shootings. So, in New York, you have the ludicrous display of the industry responsible for more gun porn than the entire NRA, whose big players happily smear the rest of the countrys law-abiding gun owners as murderers, asking for an exception to the rule many of them lobbied for so they can continue to make gun porn.

Hollywood missed its chance with James Gandolfini

Suspects in Hollywood Walk of Fame Stabbing Each Held on $1 Million Bail

Chase, however, understood from the very beginning what a gem he had in Gandolfini. No one else could have played Tony, not with such greatness, not with such humility. Chase knew to let Gandolfini dominate the screen and Gandolfini knew to let Tony Soprano dominate him. I hate that the movie industry missed that — miscasting, misplacing, misunderstanding the actor most in his post-Soprano days.

George Brown, 50, was released on bond Thursday, two days after his arrest. Brown, who stands more than 6 feet tall and sports thick dreadlocks that fall to his ankles, said little other than “yes” and “no” during a brief appearance Thursday morning in federal court in Fort Lauderdale. His attorney Michael Entin said he needs to review the evidence in the case before Brown’s arraignment on July 9. As roadway lighting coordinator for Miami-Dade’s Department of Public Works and Waste Management since 2009, Brown’s job responsibilities include overseeing the installation and maintenance of more than 45,000 street lights in the county.

The commission is set to approve the rest of the contract, which will cost the city $4.6 million, at its July 3 meeting. “It’s about time,” said Commissioner Peter Hernandez, who added that the new deal was a step toward restoring some of the pay and benefits taken away when the city declared financial urgency in 2010 and 2011. “We are not near where we were, but, frankly, we can’t afford that.
