    It's been many years since I watched Marathon Man, but yeah, that scene fits quite well with this.

    And you're right, part of what's so terrible about all this is that it's now gonna be hard to trust ANYONE. The saddest part for me is to see the kids who were so excited in 2008. Now they're all just as cynical as us old-timers are.... and it only took them a couple years to see the light. It's good that their eyes have opened, but sad at the same time.

    Oh, and anyone who might say bringing up that scene is over-reacting.... just the opposite. What was happening to Babe Levy in that film is nothing compared to what's happening to people all over the world right now... and apparently it's only gonna get worse.
