I was just in London making a movie for an Indian/British co production company. I saw old friends. We were grown up, but still we talked about classmates. Who had done well, who was a prostitute, who was in jail, who was dead. After several glasses of champagne, one chap brought up 9/11. He said how it had come to symbolize something in Britain, something that he couldn’t quite explain very well, but reading between the lines it sounded to me as if he meant, in headline form, “arrogant America gets come uppance.” In a haze of jet lag and alcohol, I suggested he had no idea what he was talking about and that perhaps maybe he shouldn’t be such an ass. Things are a bit of a blur from that point on.
