Its a big enough world that I’m sure many others share my constant desire to kick nick cage in the teeth. I take solace in this. So when the inevitable cultural hedge fund that is hollywood finally got around to 9/11, they really stuck it to me by placing mr Cage at the helm. A Hedge on wall street usually involves “”selling short” in stock that is a competitor to one you already own. This means that when the stock goes down, you still make money. Its sort of like betting on both teams in the Stanley Cup. I’m sure we can look forward to Cage et al converting sensless and meaningless death into the exact opposite. As Humphrey Bogart said “They got lucky, yesterday they were just two German clerks. Today, they’re the honoured dead.” Indeed, the Hollywood hedge fund will always salvage cultural profit, even in a bear market.
