I'm running the audio for Electricidad at the Mark Taper Forum in LA right now, so I have to type quietly. This play is a Latino version of Electra by Sophocles, and it's amazing how the 2400 year old play holds up. The whole revenge over my Dad thing is so Bush.

Meanwhile, halfway across the country, the American Taliban, led by James Dobson, are busy with another step toward creating an Evangelical Theocracy in this country.
"If there was a God, I wouldn't be making government cheese quesadillas." -- Electricidad's Grandmother.
The next play here will be Gordon Davidson's last, and it's called Stuff Happens, the story of the Bush Administration's selling of the war in Iraq. It's based on the Rumsfeld quote:
"Stuff happens!…And it’s untidy, and freedom’s untidy, and free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things." -- Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defense, April 11, 2003, when asked to comment on the widespread looting of Baghdad.
I will be setting up the projection for the show, starting production in mid May, assuming they decide to use it, and I will be the soundman for a few weeks, while Jeff, the head soundman, takes his vacation. You will be hearing about it here.

The Motor City Madman should be arrested for incindiary speech.

Don't miss my Daily KOS blog about The Nuge losing his mind, sceaming remember the Alamo to a bunch of racist gun owners in Texas, and advocating an overthrow of the US rule of law, abolishing the 7th amendment, and vigilante enforced death penalties for burglary and other crimes short of murder.

Catskill Mountains Forest Preserve

Fellow environmentalists should check out our Catskills wallpaper pictures section, where I've posted new pictures of Platte Clove, a beautiful wilderness area preserved and cared for by The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development. Robin and I were taken up there by my new favorite Republican (and I told him that's not saying much), John LaValle, who is working as our real estate agent in the Woodstock area of upstate New York. John volunteers time with the Catskill Center, and has worked hard to preserve land in New York. Kudos. My new saying on the subject of Woodstock area politics? Even the Republicans are liberal!

Heading to the Catskills...

for a week and we'll have lot's of New York free wallpaper pictures of spring in the Catskills when we get back! I'll try to post a few to our wallpaper blog while on the road, but it's going to be a busy week, so no promises.
