For the person in Jude Cole's new hit, "Start the Car," the time is right now. To put it simply, he's had it with his job and the town that he lives in. He's "tired of the pressure, so tired of the pace." He's ready to "start the car" because "we gotta move." by talking over your plans with someone  trust.

But "artistic freedom must always be responsible," the cardinal said. Artistic free- dom "cannot be separated from the moral order," he added. "Such a separation would result nat in freedom, but license." Cardinal Mahony made his remarks in his pastoral titled "Film Makers, Film Viewers: Their Challenges and Oppor- tunities." The motion picture indus- try's new NC-17 rating "is of limited help, since most of our young people reach emo- tional maturity much later than 17 years of age," the car- dinhl said. Cardinal Mahony also rec- ognized "the moral power of the media" in his pastoral. "Only the human family itself surpasses the visual media in their capacity to communi- cate values, form con- sciences, provide role models and motivate human behav- ior," he said. 'And is it any wonder we seek a dialogue with the en- tertainment industry's film- into what it means to be a human being," he added. "Entertainment without en- richment is superficial and escapist. Enrichment without entertainment is simply dull; it enriches no one." Cardinal Mahony, who joined the U.S. Catholic Con- ference Committee on Com- munications this year, issued a set of "criteria" for watch- ing movies and TV "from a human values perspective." Those criteria, in the form of questions, fall in the areas of characters, conflict, story development, relationships, about a fusion of a man and a woman on every level of their personalities, physical, psy- chological and spiritual." He said that Christian tradi- tion holds that marriage is "the only proper context for sexual intimacy." He said violence is "the coward's way to resolve dis- putes," and non-violence "takes great moral stamina, since it requires more courage to endure suffering than to in- flict it. But it works. It can bring about a genuine reconciliation between adversaries."
