Guantánamo, the image and the reality (William Glaberson, February 18, 2008, IHT)

This spring, the stoner screwball movie of 2004, "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," will get a sequel. This time, because of some unfortunate confusion on an airplane between a "bong" and a "bomb," our slacker antiheroes are shipped off to the moviemakers' idea of the worst prison imaginable.

On April 25, on a screen near you: "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantánamo Bay."

Seriously, dude.

The millions who'll see such a movie recognize that Guantanamo is comic. Intellectuals think it tragic.
