I've always had a lot of respect for this guy because he wasn't afraid to go after corrupt businesses. GE polluted the Barnegat Bay, where I grew up, with pcb's. He was the only man that went after the company to have them pay for the clean-up.

The news blew the scandal way out of proportion. Personally I think what two consenting adults do behind closed doors is their own business. Watch this movie to observe what real american hypocrisy looks and smells like, now available on Bluray!
