Horrible news.
Jul 15 Eric from Boulder commented on Performing Race and a Dangerously White Production of The Mikado.
The Asian characters in Mikado are portrayed as being petty, cowardly, vain, bubble-headed and stupid as a bag of rocks. Equally offensive is that the female English characters in G&S plays are _also_ portrayed as being petty, cowardly, vain, bubble-headed and stupid as a bag of rocks. This is in vivid contrast to the _male_ English characters in Gilbert and Sullivan plays who are portrayed as being petty, cowardly, vain, bubble-headed and stupid as a bag of rocks.

As for how bad it is for actors of the "wrong" race to be playing the roles, I'm willing to be educated. Does it make a difference that these are not meant to be anything other than stand-ins for the stuff-shirt Brit bureaucrats who are the true target of the satire? I think maybe it does, but... the picture accompanying the post made me more than a little queasy, I have to admit. Commenters on this thread who are quick to dismiss the complaint should go back for a closer look.

@5: Yes, he was kicked out of Navy, but he was kicked out for being too aggressively jesusy. It might be the only reason you can kicked out of the Navy for, and still win an election in a Republican district.

and @11: You got that right.
Jul 3 Eric from Boulder commented on Unless You Are a Professional, Don't Take Pictures of Fireworks Tomorrow.
@12: Sounds legit.
Actually, no joke,
I have friends who do that more or less for a living, except they use a pulsed laser instead of a camera flash.

Thanks, Charles, for reminding us of Peter Falk as slumming angel. Here's a link for those who of us who can never get enough of that scene:

Kavalier&Clay is an excellent novel. I wish I could see the play.

I love this I.A.

I miss all my manual transmission cars. I never think back wistfully about any of the automatic transmission cars I've owned.

@1: the vast majority of people are not predators. So if you pick a person the street at random and let them drive your car, you are very likely to be fine. What you want to watch out for are the people who come up, unbidden, to you and ask to drive your car. In that select class of people, you are much more likely to find a predator.

Unregistered: I never got this 'liberals support sharia law' thing, although it seems to get a lot of traction among fox viewers. Dinesh dsouza famously pointed out that right wing Christians and conservative Moslems have much in common and could cooperate to enact social policy.
Jun 16 Eric from Boulder commented on Hockey's Over—Now What Do I Do?.
@9: Well then you might want to follow one of the dozens of human-interest side stories that the World Cup journalists are tracking over this past lead-up month: which teams' head coaches have ordered their players to abstain from sexual relations during the tournament?
