Let's not overreact, ok?

So, Mel Gibson's an idiot. I don't have a problem with his version of Catholicism. I do have a problem with his homophobia. And now, I have a problem with his anti-Semitism (and let's leave Passion out of it, shall we?).

But Karen's calling for ALA to remove his READ poster from sale. And apparently, some Jewish groups want him prosecuted for hate crimes (WTF?!) Both are an overreaction (and I really hope that the hate crimes thing isn't true: I've tried to find other confirmation of this, and all I can find is this from the ADL).

The best thing? Don't go to his movies. Hurt him in the wallet, where it counts.
