Reel Privilege-Seeking

Not just in New Mexico — it happens everywhere:

My son and I were watching a TV show and at the end there was a blurb about it being made in Georgia.  I said to him “I guarantee that “filmed in Georgia” translates to “subsidized by Georgia.”  He did not believe me, and could not understand why anyone would subsidize film production.  After all, we can argue about whether any government subsidized jobs make sense or just cannibalize investment in other areas, but film jobs are the most temporary and fleeting of all jobs.

Turns out I was right.
