A question and a correction, Bethany:
1. What is the "Barney Fag" question? (I remember the "Barney Fag"
incident--was it really two years ago?)
2. "American Tongues" did not stir up a fuss at all at Duke--and the
scene with the word "nigger" uttered by a white man was not cut. Walt
Wolfram told me (as I recall) that the word created quite a ruckus in some
high schools, which led to an expurgated version of the film.
