Heroes: TIME journos bravely count the number of lines spoken by women in Quentin Tarantino movies to teach us a lesson or something

We’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that not all journalists spent yesterday trying to bury the purported far-leftist politics of the Dayton shooter. The bad news is that some of them were doing this instead:
It took two people to tackle this pressing issue. Well, five if you count the people who contributed “additional reporting.”
So much stunning bravery, so little time.


This is so dumb. Pam Grier and Samuel L. Jackson are the two top-billed actors in Jackie Brown. That's the comparison to do (not that I see what value that has either). Of course, a film with De Niro, Keaton and Fortster will outweigh Grier's lines.

Honest question: What was this journalistic exercise supposed to prove, exactly? That Quentin Tarantino is a sexist? That actors’ value is directly proportional to the number of lines they speak? Inquiring minds want to know.
We wouldn’t mind if Elijah and Co. piped down for a while.
But at least you have a purpose in life. Other people are saving lives and fighting fires, you’re looking for imaginary persecution. BTW some of the best acting is silent. You should go recount head tilts and shrugs, you hero, you.
