Alec Baldwin was the narrator for several “Thomas the Tank Engine” videos and played “Mr. Conductor” in a mercifully forgettable “Thomas” movie. Need I say his vicious phone-message rant against his daughter, in which he called her a pig, seems to contradict the improably wholesome image the outspoken liberal Baldwin was promoting?
I’m tempted to laugh, until I realize what embarrassment I might face if my private “tapes” were replayed to the public. One day, of course, they will be, and none of us will be able to hide behind the roles we have played. What is whispered in darkness will be shouted from the rooftops.
