Great stuff. I'm also happy to say that Abel Raises Cain is now debuting on American television via non-profit Link TV, and can also be watched online at http://www.linktv.org/programs/abel til Nov 30!
One point - Alan Abel has made a difference in convincing people to be more aware of scams and in teaching the press to check their facts better. That's a major contribution to our society.
I met Alan on the Mike Douglas Show during his SINA days and while old ladies were sending in checks to SINA, I couldn't have been the only one who questioned why the animals he clothed were only in drawings, not pictures.
Of course, giving Gypsy Rose Lee and Jayne Mansfield the SINA morality test was pure genius.
Alan Abel's film, "Abel Raises Cain," will be playing in San Francisco this week at the Roxie, in the First Annual Pranks Film Festival put on by RE/Search Publications.Tuesday April 1, 2008, 8 PM. Introduced by Mal Sharpe. Roxie 3117 16th Street at Valencia, San Francisco. Watch for the Pranks Film Festival in Your Town!
Abel is, was and always will be an inspiration to those who prefer to expose idiocy not by carrying signs and chanting slogans but from destroying the opposition's credibility simply by reducing their argument to its base stupidity.
