Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Equal Time for Banker Potter

In the world of the movie It's a Wonderful Life, did the supposedly-evil banker Mr. Potter (Mr. was apparently his first name) also have a wonderful life? If he had never existed, would this banker with a heart have frittered away the capital of the townspeople? Did Mr. Potter make it possible for a town with a healthy economy to rescue Bailey's bank?

Did the absence of equal time mean the FBI's characterization of the movie (seen via BoingBoing) was actually accurate?

Well ... Potter did confiscate a substantial wad of cash not belonging to him, and whose true owner he knew, with no intent to return it. Don't know exactly which flavor of theft this is, but I'm certain it's a form of grand theft.

Oh, and throw in a charge of perjury, since Potter swore out a false warrant against the hero of the movie for embezzling the cash.

So, does that make POTTER the Communist?
