two toms

I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise but I did go see War of the Worlds recently. I give it a definite thumbs down, although my two friends who saw it with me both liked it. Neither of them had read the book or seen the earlier adaptations movie from 1953 so they didn't know the ending.

The other Tom is Thomas Szasz and Sheldon Richman makes the connection over at the Liberty & Power Blog and points to a posting by Jeffrey A. Schaler:
A lot of people seem to have misunderstood what Tom Cruise said. It is not necessarily the case that he’s a Scientology-brainwashed wacko, or that his ideas about psychiatry even came from the Churchof Scientology. Cruise learned a lot about psychiatry from the writings of psychiatric abolitionist Thomas Szasz. Throughout the world, Szasz is considered an intellectual heavyweight, someone whose ideas about medicine, disease, science, liberty and responsibility should be taken seriously.
Read the whole thing and be sure and check out this photo of the two Toms.
