1/6/2013 This Way Out

 

Program #1,292

Hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Steve Pride and Lucia Chappelle
 

The global struggle for LGBT equality in 2012 was also reflected in the year's motion pictures and on television.  With copious clips and comments by their makers, "This Way Out's" multi-award-winning entertainment reporter STEVE PRIDE recalls some of the LGBT moving images that moved him most during the past 12 months in "PRIDE ON SCREEN 2012". First, gays and lesbians on TV -- and increasingly on the *new* small screen, including tablets and smart phones -- with clips from "MODERN FAMILY", "GAYS ANATOMY" and Steve's fave, "THE OUTS" (with comments by New York City-based writer/director/actor ADAM GOLDMAN) [www.theouts.tv]. Steve then counts down his Top Ten Movies Of The Year: (#10) "WISH ME AWAY", with a clip and comments by the film's subject, CHELY WRIGHT; (#9) "THE MOST FUN I'VE EVER HAD WITH MY PANTS ON", with a clip and comments by writer/director/star DREW DENNY; (#8) "GOING DOWN IN LA-LA LAND", with a clip and comments by writer/director/co-star CASPER ANDREAS and lead actor MATTHEW LUDWINSKI; (#7) "FROM HOLLYWOOD TO DOLLYWOOD", with a clip and comments by filmmakers GARY & LARRY LANE; (#6) "ANY DAY NOW", with a clip and comments by actor ALAN CUMMING

 "PRIDE ON SCREEN 2012" re-intro, then the rest of Steve's Top Ten Movies of the Year: (#5) "GAYBY", with a clip and comments by writer/director/co-star JONATHAN LISECKI; (#4) "HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE", with a clip and comments by documentarian DAVID FRANCE; (#3) "LAURENCE ANYWAYS", with comments by writer/director/producer XAVIER DOLAN; (#2) "VITO", with a clip and comments by documentarian JEFFREY SCHWARZ; and (#1) "KEEP THE LIGHTS ON", with a clip and comments by writer/director IRA SACHS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Few readers and listeners are unawarethat the United States is and has been sending unmanned aircraft with the rather insidious moniker – drones – over a wide swath of countries and territories overseas and targeting specific individuals with their deadly missiles. Another of these occurred Thursday or Friday of this week (Jan 3rdor 4th) inside Pakistan – again. Others occur regularly inside Afghanistan and Yemen. With good reason, howls of anguish and protest have pierced the global cyberspace and diplomatic community over the “collateral damage” –deaths and maiming of civilian innocents caught within the area of the blasts designed to destroy some single US-designated combatant the government calls a terrorist.

Hundreds of women and children have died in the wake of these targeted assassinations. At least three of those targets have been American citizens, tracked down and killed without a shred of the due process American citizens are supposed to receive in the wake of charges that they have committed crimes. This, of course, is an egregious affront to Constitutional guarantees – in other words, illegal actions – administered by this newly re-elected President, who, despite other commendable domestic actions, has adopted a dictator-like cavalier attitude toward due process when it comes to political dissent and national security issues.

This leads us to the next step in drone development: one that could, any day now, start hovering over your house, your home right here in the good USofA.

 Hover drone

It is now estimated that some30,000 drones have been ordered or made available to local law enforcement agencies through grants by US justice officials, only we can’t know about these, either, because the Department of Justice – read Obama Administration – refuses to inform a still-unaware public that the government may now believe it can spy on your town, your city, you neighborhood or your home with secrecy and impunity.The Justice Department's own Inspector General's Year End Report(Top Management and Performance Challenges in the Department) warns about the "challenges" such machines make for a deaprtment whose job it is to protect civil rights and privacy, not dispense with it. Where it could go from there few people want to even think about – and that would be their use as weapons, not just spy machines. (Naomi Wolf insists it’s simply a matter of time.) And drones need not be flyovers, but hovering little camera-bearing robots peeking into windows and backyards and playgrounds – as they did over the Humphrey Dome at the last Vikings-Packers game in Minneapolis Sunday, Dec. 31.

Why does anyone find this necessary? All the former police officers and executive we’ve talked with are as fearful of this tool in the hands of local police agencies and the FBI as any one of us might be. How should we respond to the secrecy surrounding the development of this surveillance machine for domestic use? How should we view the potential for the maximum intrusion into our long-revered privacy these robotics represent? Who’s looking into this extraordinary interruption of American life as we’ve known it? Who’s challenging it?

TTT’s ANDY DRISCOLL and MICHELLE ALIMORADI talk with various advocates at the national and regional levels as an alert to citizens to take action toward curbing the use of drones – domestic surveillance types, especially.
