unintended consequences and other musings


Finding the Good Ancestors

Courtesy of the Wiki Leaks which gave us some secret Sony emails:

PBS (read public….) ran a program called ‘Finding your Roots’ which dug into famous people’s past and reported on their findings.  Ben Affleck happened to be one and they discovered that his family had once been slave owners.  Ben immediately asked the show not to run this story and PBS acquiesced.  Of course they DID include the story that his mother marched for civil rights in the 60’s.  Be aware of the unintended consequences when you let people dig into your life and prepare to accept the truth wherever it may take you.  Or be Batman…….
