SMACK DOWN. Great job, Christopher! Spot on.

So sad about Dennis passing, but this tribute is magnificent. Thank you.

Spraying caustic chemicals at teachers and passers-by in random crowds at a peaceful gathering on Martin Luther King Jr. day while shrieking and throwing a tantrum: "STELLAR!!" Imagine if a non-cop did what she did? The beat down they'd get from cops? But it's totally cool because the peace officer "got emotional" about it later. That video is one of the most gallows-humor indictments of police out of control I've ever seen, and this news is an absolute insult.

I am in complete agreement that that is a terrible way to stage Carver. Just an absolutely awful idea that does no service to the stories. I don't know whether or not someone should leave before the end of a play to review it (in general), but I do know that what you described got what it deserved in this case. I would have left too. And now that you mention it, I'm going to be walking out on more movies before they end too. I thought I was the only one starting to do that more and more. Thanks, man.

What a greedy little twit. Maybe you just suck at it?

"Everyone runs! Everyone does Crossfit!" Yeah, even our quadriplegics! And all our homeless! It's a fucking miracle is what it is, really. It's because of all the healing sunshine people from other cities bring to us in in their blessed assholes. It kind of pools here, mixing around in our gene pool, healing all the sick and lame so everyone can jog and get ripped.

There are ex-Mars Hill parishioners who are repenting for their beliefs and behaviors peculiar to their time that church (misogyny, homophobia, money-worship). But more need to do so, and more need to do so publicly. And more apologetic outreach needs to happen to those of us who lost a unique and wonderful part of our independent music and arts scene due to its rise. But true, the tragedies of Scientology are far greater due to the amount of decades of outlandish harm and billions of dollars involved, compared to Mars Hill.

Superb reporting, Charles. We have to wake up and fund what truly prospers the city, and not just land owners and construction firms.
