In the latest TIME, Harrison Ford expresses a refreshing attitude toward celebrity proselytizing:

In addition to acting, you have always worried about the preservation of the environment. Have you thought about doing a movie that focuses on this important cause? Lisa Sukys, S?O PAULO, BRAZIL

I don’t much care for message movies, because what you do is raise an important and serious issue and then create a movie answer for it–something that can solve the problem in under two hours. Neither am I interested in being a poster boy for a cause. We shouldn’t decide which side of the issue we come down on on the basis of what celebrity we want to ally with.

For some reason, this insight from Star Wars? Han Solo reminds me of a John Hood column.
