The Passion vs. the Python

I’m on the Monty Python email list, so I thought it was interesting that they sent out this press release yesterday about them planning “a theatrical re-release (or second coming) of Life of Brian.” in response to the ongoing coverage of “The Passion”. All well and good, and maybe it’ll make it to DC I think to myself.

This morning, what do I see on the front page of the Vancouver Globe and Mail? And a Google news search shows a number of other papers have run with the story. Publicity means a much better chance of us getting to see Brian on the big screen in DC, so that’s a good thing.
