I met Mel Gibson once or twice for a moment or two, and to his credit the man never made a single anti-Semitic reference to me, or threatened me with sexual assault, or used any virulently racist language during those ten seconds. Also I really dug "Edge Of Darkness" when I caught it on a flight to London the other day. So in the spirit of brotherhood, here's my angry but forgiving playlist for a cracked actor who apparently has some passions in this life that aren't particularly Christ-like. Please know that I'm praying for you, Mel -- in Yiddish.
