Re: “Headline Ripping

This was a concise, probing and analytical theater review. Thanks.

Now if only you could replace that grim movie critic at the Weekly.

Re: “Vanishing Waters

US drought levels fall to lowest point in years

Just 5 percent of the United States is experiencing drought conditions, the lowest level of drought here since government scientific agencies began updating the U.S. Drought Monitor on a weekly basis in 2000.

Record rain and snowfall over the winter on the West Coast and heavy spring rains in the Midwest have alleviated some of the worst and longest-lasting drought conditions ever recorded.

Re: “The Age of Anxiety

Thank you Margret for reminding us that Art is one of our most potent agencies in sparking the imagination in resistance to systematic dissolve and that Art which is reserved for escapistt purpose and profit always comes up short in feeding those most in need .

Re: “The Death of JosĂ© Antonio

Hi there, I thought Jose Antonio was murdered on October 10th, not on the 8th?

Re: “Justice Denied

Yet there are so-called "real Americans" alive today that would gladly see the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of Islamic-Americans limited, curtailed or eliminated because of the same racially-motivated fears based on ignorance and misdirected national patriotism.

I spent more than 20 years defending the United States from "all enemies, foreign and domestic", but more than that it was about upholding values and recognizing the reality that there are evil people in the world who would use any means necessary to secure and maintain power over others -- even if it meant harnessing the most base emotions, cloaking them in the American flag, and using them to destroy the America that I know and love from within.

Re: “Justice Denied

I wish I could call FDR one of our greatest presidents for the good he did do, but nothing makes up for his legacy of this crime in our history.

Re: “In Peripeteia

I lived in the house of the son of one of celias attorneys a few years ago. I wrote a play and screenplay on Celia, and have done tons of research on the story. Someone in Hollywood owns the book rights, and they have been trying to produce it for years. My play is a fictional account from one of Jameson's daughters. I've always felt the story should be told broadly...wish I'd found d a bigger audience for mine.

Re: “Un Gringo Chilango

I was wondering what life is like in Mexico, and you were able to explain your experience. It was interesting. I hope that someday I might travel there and see for myself. Thanks for shedding the light.

Dan, this was a great piece, intuitive and witty. You truly captured succinctly the Mexican psyche.

Re: “Un Gringo Chilango

Hey Dan, that was a fun little read. I got the chance to be lead around the DF by my 15 year old son two summers ago. Was completely shocked that we saw so little white faces and when we did their accents were always European. We got the chance to drive down to Loredo, BCS from Phoenix this winter to see the Baja around the time when the gas jumped. Such a different place so close to home. Had no idea about your 2016 record which has me listening to it this fine morning. Take care.

I loved this show so much I am taking my teaching assistant as a thank you for her help in my classroom

Re: “Ass-kickin' Posole!

I think you mean "...solidly supportive of this tenet of the theater's mission...", not "tenant".

Re: “Dance Away

"narrative dances about Dillanger." Finally, John Dillanger, the lesser-known and not as successful criminal, is getting his day in the sun. It's about time!
