Richard Leiby's Hollywood column at the Washington Post gives a great example today of a positive way to influence the views of public servants. Though the article's title refers to the first part, which demonstrated how not to do it I've excerpted part of the good approach, I'm looking forward to seeing this movie:

It's the F-Time Show With Chevy Chase (

"State Department employees packed an auditorium yesterday afternoon for a sneak preview of a Golden Globe-nominated movie, but it was all about work, not recreation. The flick is 'Hotel Rwanda,' based on the searing true story of a hotel manager who sheltered more than 1,200 refugees after the West turned a blind eye to that country's genocidal violence a decade ago.

'Over 500 people came, and they were clearly moved by the film,' director Terry George told us after the screening. 'We had a fairly good discussion about peacemaking today and the situation in Darfur and the Congo.'" linked fantasy interview of Chevy Chase by word of the day junkie Christopher Hitchens.
