BETTE MIDLER, the singer, on a solution to violence in films and TV: “Comedy is the answer. Or at least laughter. Violence takes no intelligence at all. Violence is the lowest. Charlie Chaplin was cruel a lot of the time, but he was so charming he got away with it. There never were women doing slapstick. It was always men. I guess because it hurts you. I mean, to fall down and do all those stunts really hurts you. I would love to see slapstick brought back and me the one to do it.”
