Is it possible to be too sensitive? Are we afraid to offend people? What has happened to freedom of speech and creative license? I saw that the Catholic League is mad about the movie being made from Dan Brown's book the Da Vinci Code. They and others want Ron Howard and Sony Pictures to soften and alter the storyline because they are unhappy about the way the Church is portrayed in the book, and now the movie. Remember the Catholic Cardinal lambasting the book? What are all these people afraid of? Ron Howard is a good director and a nice, well liked man in Hollywood. They forget that this is a work of fiction, although some details of the work have been researched and are true. People need to get a grip. I grew up in the 50's and 60's and have seen the world change a lot. But come on! It's FICTION, get over it!

Never a truer word spoken. We are at risk of being afraid of speaking in case we offend someone somewhere!
