Hey, Harlan?

This is so not okay.

Yeah. And I may be alone in this, but I think using this incident to trot out every reason people don't like him, every snide remark he's ever made, is actually a way to belittle the severity of this real, unambiguous offense. I've heard plenty of stories about him before this, everyone has, but it's never added up to anything awful -- people will be furious, and declare him a hateful little man, and then they tell a story that culminates in him saying -- an joke that wasn't funny!! or something equally horrible, and I never really could tell what the big deal was.

Anyway, this is totally different. And I wonder if he was going for something like this, but the thing is, that wasn't okay either, at all.

I agree absolutely.
Me too, and well said. Exactly.
You know, I'm so terribly torn on that kiss. Even at the moment I saw it, I was stunned that Halle Berry didn't haul off and slap him one, because holy gods did he deserve it. And at the same time, I think that was simply the *greatest* kiss I've ever seen, and I am eternally grateful to Halle Berry for *not* hauling off and slapping him one, even though he roundly deserved it.
