Every “open up” protestor in Commack, Long Island, had something precise and vicious to say to reporter Kevin Vesey. Too precise and too varied — as if they’d written and rehearsed their lines beforehand. Their sentiments reminded me of those well-prepared actors (Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin, Dorian Harewood, Arliss Howard, etc.) in that news-camera scene in Stanley Kubrick‘s Full Metal Jacket (’87).
