On the death of Garry Marshall: some say we shouldn’t speak ill of the dead. But excoriation over graves is what some of us do best.

He seemed like a swell guy & valued niceness. But just how nice is his film “Pretty Woman” which sentimentalized & glorified prostitution? The Women in Film organization gave him an award for the film in 1996, claiming he enhanced the image & perception of women through film. They didn’t explain how the presentation of woman as street walker enhances perceptions rather than justifies woman as cheap commodity.

Should he RIP or fry in hell? Giving him merit for niceness, he should at least barbecue a while.
