SORKIN: He gave me a lot of great advice, and oftentimes it would be in the form of this. I would come over to his house. He lives at the Carlyle Hotel in New York. I'd come over to his apartment, and we would wrestle with something for a few hours. And when I would kind of get in the zone, if you will, which is to say feeling very strongly that I was right about something, about a certain story point. I would forget that I was talking to someone with two Academy Awards, who was decades ahead of me in terms of experience, who has served as a mentor to great people, someone who even well before I met him was a hero of mine. And I would argue with him, toe to toe, and he would say, "Well, it really sounds like you know what you want, so go do it."
Is a car more American if it is built using mostly American parts? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Part 583, American Automobile Labeling Act requires all automakers to determine what percentage (by value) of each car’s parts comes from America or Canada. In addition, carmakers have to state the origin of the engine and transmission. But if you look at the parts content of the cars sold in the ., you’ll see Honda at the top of the ./Canada Parts Content list. And again, the average person probably doesn’t think Honda is American.
