Some Corrections

Okay, okay. There came a point in the making of the movie where it started to get tedious, and I decided I'd rather be done with it than make it perfect.

I knew I made the following mistakes: At one point, I say Texas has 37 electors. This number is actually 34. I think when the complaint in Jones v. Bush was filed, it says there were 32 electors. It was a minor point. I didn't see much of a reason to change it.

Secondly, I say Cheney flew back to his ranch in Jackson, WY. I'm not sure there is much of a difference between Jackson and Jackson Hole, but it may technically be in Jackson Hole. I've seen it stated both ways.

Third, at one point toward the end of the movie, and it took my father to point this out to me, I slip and say that Dick Cheney was Secretary of State under Bush, Sr. Well, as pointed out elsewhere in the movie, he was Secretary of Defense. That was an error I missed, but one that should be corrected in subsequent versions of the movie.

FINALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: Judge Fitzwater DID NOT hire George Prescott Bush mere months PRIOR to deciding the Jones v. Bush case. He hired Georgie P AFTER deciding the case. Thus, there's a bit less of a conflict of interest than I had been told there was by a UT Law grad who was present on campus at about that time. It turns out that Georgie P did not start law school until 2000, so he couldn't have interviewed with Fitzwater in 2000. He would have interviewed sometime later for his clerkship with the man who played a small role in making sure Dick Cheney became VP when arguably it should have been John Edwards.

I really wish people would actually post comments here, but thus far everyone feels a need to e-mail me directly. I didn't realize people were so shy. You can do it anonymously. I promise.

The responses are coming in...

I've gotten phone calls and e-mails, but no one seems to want to click the little "comments" link on here where it says zero comments and add theirs here. Do you want to be the first? I think you do.

Happy 4th of July

Amazingly, the duplication service I used returned 100 DVDs to me yesterday. I addressed a bunch of them, and handed out a few handfuls here and there.

I'm hoping to get some input from the people I've given the DVDs to that don't already know me and haven't heard me tell the stories in the movie a thousand times. If you're one of those few people that got a copy of the DVD and doesn't really know me, and you find yourself here, let me know what you think.

For the people who don't know this site exists because they've not yet gotten a DVD... ignore this post.
