Tom Long of The Detroit News is a terrific movie reviewer - my favorite - but his Oct. 9 column is too weighted with reasons the state's film incentive program may be a good thing.
Long's piece is titled "Michigan's movie role pays off." If the words "for some" were added to the end it might be true, in the same sense that bank robbery pays off - for the robber. The analogy doesn't quite hold, though, because in this instance those absconding with the loot were invited into the vault by the bank's employees.
