I used to work in and out of that theater at MGM, and I remember the girl who died. RIP Sarah! The show is magnificent, of course until this happened. Cirque has never had a death in the 30 or so years they have been performing. Very sad indeed. I understand the show will remain shutdown till OSHA does an investigation.
I saw Much Ado About Nothing. It was good. Branagh’s Benedick was better but Clark’s Leonato was awesome. There wasn’t as much disconnect in the dialog and setting as I thought there would be. The way the lines were delivered made them fresh and modern in so many cases. It really speaks to the quality of the source material and the ability of the actors/director. The Benedick slapstick scene was too silly, the opening scene unnecessary, and the sex more than I prefer (although there is very little overall), but I really enjoyed it very much.
We’ve debased the word “hero” so much(pro athletes as heroes)that we forget who real heroes are.
High of 80 in Memphis on July 1st?Read it and weep,Fritz!(Sadly,won’t last)
Yeah! It’s already 111 here and headed for another 117+! Yesterday it was 126 in Laughlin , NV. Just 2 degrees shy of the 128 in Death Valley. Laughlin is deep in the Colorado River Gorge, about 60 miles south of Hoover Dam! Being on the river the bugs there are people eaters, even with the heat. It’s like living in a cage full of gnats, roaches and spiders! Ugh!
Random thought on the George Zimmerman trial: where’s the outrage from the Latino rights groups? Here we’ve got a young Hispanic man, accused of murder despite plentiful evidence that he was acting in self-defense (and in defense of his neighborhood), but where’s La Raza? LULAC? Heck, colleges don’t even have their Latino Student Unions leading any protests.
Is it just me, or are these groups more about attacking white people than they are about defending their own race? If not, why aren’t they standing up for Zimmerman against the blacks that are out for his blood?
Because of his last name not being Hispanic. They think everyone will think he’s white!
Funny how the black community has no trouble claiming the half-white Obama as their own, but Zimmerman gets left out in the cold.
I demand that the powers of the press start referring to Obama as a black white! You can bet that the blacks in Africa know all too well that Obama is half black and probably not too pleased about it either. I’m old enough to remember that within the last 45-50 years the black community in the US was not very enamoured with the result of white/black marriages or illicit relations which produced same! Obama only calls himself black so he can play the race card! I reiterate here one more time, that his color in no way bothers me. What bothers me about him is his un-Christian, Muslim leaning, leftist politics!
I went to New Mexico,I know all about La Raza!
La Raza has its fingers deep into our education system. I had to take a course on teaching English Language Learner kids, that is mandatory for teachers to take to keep their jobs. It’s supposed to be about kids from any nationality or race that speaks another language, but it’s really geared toward Hispanics. The videos of interviews and tutorials we watched were produced by La Raza.
