What are we, in the indie film community, to make of Mark Cuban competiting on "Dancing with the Stars"? Is this another shameless grab for fame in the wake of his failed TV show? If HDNET turns out not to be all it's cracked up to be, is Cuban aiming for second-rate celebrity reality shows as a fulltime career?
