After my article, Help! I’m a Hollywood Republican, was published in The Jewish Press two weeks ago, I was besieged by dozens of phone calls, hundreds of e-mails and numerous requests for various interviews.
Just a few days ago, I finally finished answering every single letter that was written to me in response to the article. I’m proud that I did not resort to a form letter. My feeling is that if you go to the trouble of writing me an articulate letter, you deserve a personal response.
As far as interviews, well, I decided to keep a low profile. Look, I am not self-destructive. I did not write the article out of some perverse impulse. I wrote it because I am genuinely alarmed at what I see as Hollywood’s surrender, if not downright collaboration with the Jihadists — murderous barbarians who are mortal enemies of civilization.
After carefully studying the website of one potential interviewer, I finally agreed to appear on the Rightalk radio show and discuss my article, being a Republican in Hollywood, the way in which Hollywood liberals refuse to confront the Jihadists, our beloved son Ariel ZT”L, why we started Seraphic Press our Young Adult publishing company, and of course my critically acclaimed novel The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden.
I was incredibly nervous before the interview. Pacing my office like some caged animal, I scolded myself for agreeing to appear. You see, in spite of the blog, in spite of how public Karen and I seem to live our life, we are genuinely shy and intensely private.
Just as I was about to faint into a cowardly puddle, the phone chimed and the interview, well, as all the toothless guests on Jerry Springer say: “It just happened.”
Not that I ever watch Jerry Springer.
