someone I don’t much read, anymore
“For me, the diversity issue … did not come up.
I would never consider diversity in matters of art.
It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.”
and created a tweet-storm
(don’t-cha just love the Internet
so many opinions, so little Truth)
which I found surprising, he seems
not at all as they cry, he is
I find it also surprising
that so many honestly think
preferring the minor to the major is
not discriminatory yet
preferring the major to the minor is
when all he really said was:
“Quality matters, in matters of art
Preference of one, for any other reason
over another, would be wrong.”
though we often disagree
(I have not read his books in years
they frighten and distract from God)
as he I believe that the best
and the best alone matters
in any matter worthy thought
choosing to fill a quota
as much a bigoted act
as choosing one’s peers
if the choice belittles the best
At this week's announcements for the
Academy Awards Stephen King got into
trouble for the comment quoted above.
I don't get it, all he said was that he will
vote for quality instead of for quotas.
Aren't the Academy Awards about quality?
