Thailand: Boycotting Censored Movie

Andrew Biggs in Thailand boycotts the opening of the movie Da Vinci Code. The final 10 minutes of the movie is cut because of protests by Thai Christian groups. Andrew says “I don’t want to offend this group of well-meaning Thai Christians, but really, you have no right to be telling me what I can and cannot see. I’m an educated, grown man, and I am intelligent enough to watch something and make up my own mind about it. I don’t need you telling me what I can and cannot do.”
