Question:

Ever wonder why critics of fakery always single out pro wrestling? Charles Bronson movies are fake. Stallone's not really Rambo. Broadway plays, cartoons, operas -- where are the critics there? If they're gonna bemoan fakery and trickery, who not do so equally?

-- James "Pocket" West, San Ysidro

Pick one: (A) Despite how seriously Hollywood takes itself, unlike pro wrestling, it has never pretended to be anything but fake -- ditto Stallone, Broadway, cartoons, operas; or (B) A fat guy in glitter spandex with face paint is just too ripe a target to resist.
