Re: “Sour Grapes

What a crock! Not sure where this reviewers head space was at, but the play that I saw at the Rogue theater was, in my opinion, an artistic achievement. The Grapes of Wrath is a very complex story... discerning who is the protagonist is an art-form unto itself. Translating this complex story on a stage with bare minimal props - from the dust bowl, along the highway and eventually to the fields of California is no easy feat. All the little attention to detail in the staging of the actors, including the flow and movement which propelled the story-line, added to the tapestry of enveloping us into the story of the Joad's struggles. As for the actors and their performance, it was superb. Each actor was able to draw me into the character that they were portraying seamlessly. Reviewers themselves have to take in account their own limitations, especially their own expectations. Sherilyn arrived at this venue with expectations and pencil in hand, and from her review, a limited perception... I arrived with no expectations and was immensely entertained... my hat is off to the Rogue Theater and their production...

Re: “Un Gringo Chilango

Dan, a really insightful and interesting piece from someone who's always had a wonderful facility for writing and with words in general. I well remember how, as GoR frontman, you were able to manipulate huge crowds with consummate ease. What pleased me most about this essay was that you sounded more positive about life than I can remember for a long time. Mexico is obviously very good for you. See you over in Blighty ere too long, hopefully. Take care.
