I am not fond of Fonda, Jane, 1 each. This piece is older news, but this site was not around when it broke to post it...so here it is!

Demonstrating patience by not rushing the table where Fonda was signing her new book, Michael A. Smith (a Vietnam veteran) waited his turn and then spit tobacco juice into the face of Jane Fonda.

"I consider it a debt of honor," he told The Star for a story on its Web site, www.kansascity.com. "She spit in our faces for 37 years. It was absolutely worth it. There are a lot of veterans who would love to do what I did."

There are a lot of veterans not of the Vietnam era who I am positive would have loved to do what you did.


I don't know anybody who is fond of Hanoi Jane Fonda. But doesn't the spitting in her face tactic seem a bit-- leftist? Its always the lefties that do ridiculous shit like throwing paint on women wearing furs, pies on CEOs, and, infamously, spitting on returning Vietnam vets. Its an awful, juvenile tactic that would be a mistake for the right to adopt.

I think that you are correct in your initial assessment of the leftist set, however, I believe the motive in this case was 37 years awaited for vindication. Call it self gratification if you want.

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - The owner of two Kentucky theaters has refused to show the new Jane Fonda film "Monster-in-Law" because of the activist role the actress took during the Vietnam War.

Ike Boutwell, who trained pilots during the Vietnam War, displayed pictures of Fonda clapping with a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft crew in 1972 outside the Elizabethtown Movie Palace to show his disapproval. The marquee outside Showtime Cinemas in nearby Radcliff reads: "No Jane Fonda movie in this theater."

Both theaters are just a few miles from the Army post of Fort Knox, south of Louisville.

"I think when people do something, they need to be held responsible for their actions," Boutwell said. "When you give the enemy aid, it makes the war last longer."

--Great news.
