By Ron Magid, Special to the Times How do you make the United States' most controversial prison funny? Do nothing, says Tony Fanning, production designer for the stoner comedy sequel, "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay." "I consciously stayed away from anything I thought was hokey," says Fanning, whose eclectic credits include theater and such high-tech films as Robert Zemeckis' "Polar Express" and Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds." "The more believable it is, the funnier things are."
