“American Buffalo” playwright David Mamet has made a strange claim on Fox News. Maybe being on Fox News did this to him. See the video below. He says, “Teachers are inclined — particularly men because they’re predators– to pedophilia.”
Maybe he’s had a stroke.
Seriously, apparently Mamet has been making the rounds spouting all kinds of garbage for the last week. His new book, published this past week, is from Broadside, the conservative imprint at Simon & Schuster. The author of “Speed the Plow” and “Glengarry Glen Ross” has in one moment revealed himself to have the opposite views of his fans.
