We Are Change Los Angeles
In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
Boy, did I open a can of worms today at the press conference for “Rescue Me,” the great Denis Leary comedy. It’s back (soon) for a fifth season, and in watching the second episode I noticed the show drifting back to the 9/11 memories theme it explored at length in the first season. So I grabbed a microphone and pursued that questioning with the producers, and I asked a couple of the actors to chime in as well.
One person I asked was Daniel Sunjata, who plays Franco on “Rescue Me.” I asked him because there is this fascinating, where-did-THIS-come-from scene in the second episode. A French journalist is interviewing firemen who were at Ground Zero on 9/11 for a new 10th-anniversary commemorative coffee table book. First, watch what Sunjata’s character says. I would call this high-end conspiracy theory-mongering, the type that many people might say, “Hm. Well, I don’t agree, but you raise some very interesting points there.”
