Wow! We Won One! <em>Gunner Palace</em> Wins its Battle for PG-13 Rating


Thanks to all of you who signed the Gunner Palace petition requesting that the Motion Picture Association of America revise its “R” rating of the film to “PG-13”.
This is a big win for Michael Tucker who shot this documentary and the soldiers whose story he helps tell in their words.
The New America Foundation hosted 400 people to see the film at a recent screening in DC at which the film producer and several of the soldiers attended. E-mail reactions sent to me have been overwhelmingly positive and supportive about Gunner Palace and its themes. See it if you can.
I am sort of stunned that the good guys actually won one. Neat.
