Ruh-Roh

I’d be happy to be wrong, but that The Huffington Post chose to cherry-pick this passage from the news coverage of the potential Frank Lloyd Wright film does not fill me with hope and sunshine:

Beresford told press that the script “doesn’t whitewash [Wright] into some sort of saint.”

We all know that Frank Lloyd Wright was not a saint, in fact he was often indistinguishable from the Platonic form of the jackass. Frank Lloyd Wright is not auditioning to be our best friend in junior high — he’s a dead guy who left behind 400 endlessly fascinating buildings. That doesn’t change, even if we learn he killed a man in a bar fight.

Truth is, Wright at his worst is less annoying the the Huffington Post at its best.
