horton hears a who

"a person's a person no matter how small". Horton, the unmanifested elephant, had "ears to hear" a Who. He was their advocate in the cosmic jungle and 'told the story' of the people living on a 'spec' in his flower. This movie demonstrates what every culture has in common. Brilliant. There is so much more that brings us together than apart.

The "moral authority"/ego and 'spec' managing kangaroo lady was not demonized in the end. I thought this went really well with Chiekos talk Friday. "I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephants faithful 100 percent." "Just me and my spec shooting the breeze. We're a club. We're a group. We can be a secret society and no one else can join unless they wear funny hats!" ..and keep their word.. lol

It'll be fun to watch it with you when it comes out. I liked the Grinch, oddly enough, so I'm pretty sure that this'll be entertaining too - with a good message, of course. :P
