Nora Ephron on at least one war metaphor

From an interview at NPR:

“One of the things I’m completely fascinated by,” she said, in her characteristically wry way, “is the determination of many film directors — mostly men — to believe it’s like fighting a war.

“If you have a caterer along,” she said, bringing the joke home, “it is not quite a war. I think we have to remember this.”

Nora Ephron passed away Tuesday. We’re pretty sad around here as a result.
