Opie's Day

Ron hopes that more protests explode
When ticket sales start to erode.
It don't take Da Vinci
To know it's a cinch he
Already deciphered that code!

From Hollywood, a Prayer in 'Code'

I disliked the book, thought it was a slow and silly read. I'd read Holy Blood, Holy Grail in the 1980's and already knew the theory about Mary Magdelene being the "holy grail". I don't plan to see the movie - I don't want to subject myself to a repeat boredom experience. But I have enjoyed watching all the hype in the media about this movie and I've wondered if the church has orchestrated the media discussions.

By the way, your "Opies's Day" is a stroke of genius.

I agree that the media hype may be the only interesting thing about either the book or the movie.

As to the title, thanks. I just love it when every thing comes together like that!

I am laughing and laughing, and growing envious by the moment of your talent. Opie's Day - what a hoot!

Now, I must disagree with Little Rocker, I really enjoyed the movie, though somewhat less than the book. I found it a fun read, a nice puzzle, and a good quasi history lesson for a few bucks and a few hours of my time.

And who is to say not a too far-fetched theory?

I love it when the Church Holy Powers-That-Be get their righteous drawers in a wad...
