My german heritage has redeemed itself in a documentary called, “Helvetica.” It's about the history of the typeface, “Helvetica” which has German roots. But then I am reminded again, watching Oprah's interview of Tom Cruise. She marvels at the grand length of his 25 year career in film. And I jump up and shout, “that's how long that poor girl was in the basement!”

I am disturbed.
And seriously not making light of it.
The basement not my disturbance.

I am suddenly very self conscious.
Am I editing myself or suddenly feeling a moral journalistic responsibility?
