Yikes! The only thing missing from that picture is a white hood, but it's hardly necessary with that helmet.

What would the late Bernie Schwartz say, he who did NOT say, "yonder doth lie the castle of my fodder." Looks like this dude woulda' crusaded Bernie right outa Hollywood. No Bernie, no Jamie Lee Curtis. No Jamie Lee, no Trading Places. No Trading Places, no Eddie Murphy running the show.

I checked out the link to the company's website. Seriously, they want people to invest hundreds of thousands (if not millions) on a project with that website design? I've seen sites for plumbers that looked better and could be taken more seriously. (That's not a slam against plumbers, it's just you don't normally associate them with great webdesign.)

According to the same OED, Thomas Jefferson, noted intolerant Christian, stripper of context, conservative asshole, racist, and etc..., wrote in 1786, "Preach, my dear Sir, a crusade against ignorance."

What?

You know, that Crusade game would be more interesting if they picked a Crusade that wasn't guaranteed to succeed, or set it in the inter-Crusade Crusader state wars. Also, I'm pretty sure that using someone else's almost-certainly-trademark-protected CGI to announce your commercial venture means that your corporate counsel has to start yelling at you from day 1, instead of having a honeymoon of subtle subterfuge.

Looks like Ms. Wendy Goldman isn't going to be launching any crusades against IP rip-offs.

Jesus, even the damn crusaders knew that if you're gonna just rip a pic off from a Google image search, you take it from page 27, not page 1.

"According to the same OED, Thomas Jefferson, noted intolerant Christian, stripper of context, conservative asshole, racist, and etc..., wrote in 1786, "Preach, my dear Sir, a crusade against ignorance."

What?"

And if Jefferson were any of the above (he was racist, but I doubt he was all that bad by the standards of his time, and don't see why you brought it up since the topic here seems to be Goldman's religion-based bigotry rather than race-based bigotry), or to scrupulously give the benefit of the doubt let's say two of the above, it would be totally natural to jump to the conclusion that the venture he was talking about was bigotry hidden disingenuously under more neutral language. Since he wasn't, though, and the average person at Big Hollywood is all of the above, your point, assuming I understand you at all, is misguided if not misleading.
