Los Angeles (AFP) – Sony Pictures on Wednesday canceled the December 25 release date of The Interview, a parody film which has angered North Korea and triggered chilling threats from hackers.

“In light of the decision by the majority of our (theater) exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the… theatrical release,” it said in a statement.

Just over year before her untimely death on Friday, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared as a guest lecturer for the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, AR with National Public Radio correspondent Nina Totenberg. The crowd that signed up to see "Notorious RBG" live was so large that the event had to be moved to a major sports arena – and they weren't disappointed by the wide-ranging, hour-long interview.

Witty, charming, brilliant, principled, Ginsburg represented the very best of American liberalism and modern feminism. Listen to her and you'll feel even more deeply what former President Bill Clinton says in his poignant introduction: "Only one of us in this room appointed her…but all of us hope that she will stay on that court forever."
