American Airlines wants to remain the go-to carrier for Hollywood. Based on recommendations from the council, the Texas-based airline has already added healthier in-flight meal options and a flight from Los Angeles to Toronto in September for the Toronto Film Festival, the paper reported.The American Airlines Council on Entertainment — a panel comprised of 3o representatives from the show business industry — was created about 18 months ago. Though the airline has not released the names of the representatives, they include a number of film and TV studio travel bookers and celebrity managers, according to the L. High-profile clients are also afforded a 24-hour service desk and a private reservation number that only a number of American Airlines staffers can access.They meet every three months to determine how the airline can cater to its A-list clientele flying out of the Los Angeles International Airport, the L.
He goes on to assert that US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s earlier remark about the relative use of taboo language among Americans of different backgrounds was true in respect to Jews.
“He [Scalia] was rebutting a point from a dissenting opinion about how ‘small-town broadcasters’ would suffer unduly under the court’s decision, because it would necessitate their purchase of expensive equipment to bowdlerize fleeting expletives during live broadcasts.
These ‘small-town broadcasters’ would not suffer, Scalia countered, because their ‘down-home local guests probably employ vulgarity less than big-city folks [and the] foul-mouthed glitterati from Hollywood.’ “Dirty words, Scalia declared absurdly, aren’t a temptation for ‘down-home,’ ‘small-town’ American; they’re only a ‘big-city,’ ‘Hollywood’ problem.
The answers vary: Some Jews use obscenity to fight anti-Semitism, while others use it to rewrite traditional Jewish stories in a contemporary idiom.” In the article, titled “’Dirty Jews’ and the Christian right”, the Jewish professor goes on to say that; “Brilliant actors like Larry David and Sarah Silverman are challenging America’s powerful religious, family-friendly culture and asserting their Jewishness by glorifying obscenity.
“In a tidy coincidence, two separate videos went viral last week, demonstrating that American Jews’ love affair with obscenity is still going strong.
Sarah Silverman talks about being visited by Jesus Christ, who asks her to spread a message about women’s reproductive rights (“We’ve got to legislate that shit,” the comedienne said, mocking conservatives who want to use the law to limit women’s health care options), while a fan-produced supercut strung together three minutes of uninterrupted insults by Larry David on ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’” Professor Lambert goes on to claim that American Christians are behind all attempts to censor obscenity and to maintain family values—and that Jews are deliberately using pornography and obscenity to attack those values.“So, who’s behind the tightening of American obscenity laws in the 21st century?Like Anthony Comstock’s crusade against smut in the late 19th century, this one is understood by many of its leaders as a Christian project,” Professor Lambert writes.Even those few Jews involved with anti-pornography crusade organizations are dismissed as “marginal” and as “Jewish crackpots.” “The contemporary Christian right has a much more complex and self-aware relationship with American Jews than its 19th-century predecessors did, though.So recent anti-porn campaigns have welcomed with open arms any Jews with compatible ideas, like Orthodox modesty crusader Wendy Shalit.Today’s anti-porn organizations, even if funded by Christians, often seek out Jews to sit on their boards – though mostly they attract only very marginal rabbis and other Jewish crackpots,” Professor Lambert said.
