Local Natives – Villainy
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and after that it’s officially the Christmas season, with all the familiar music, tv specials, and movies. I have long thought that the holiday movie villain that most resembles the Orange in Chief is not Scrooge, nor the Grinch (though I’ll take those happy endings any day) but Mr. Potter in It’s a Wonderful Life.
A real estate tycoon with bad hair who spends all his time trying to squash the little guy, demeaning people left and right, making snide racist comments, over charging and short changing people, and at the end, he tries to have his opponent jailed, while he pockets the $8000 that doesn’t belong to him. When it comes on tv this year, check it out and let me know if you agree.
