Congratulations, Franklin and cast!

A wonderful review of a local play, Medium Rare, which I enjoyed thoroughly this past weekend. If you are local, go see! Franklin LaVoie's writing and puppets, beautiful sets, full of surprises. Political and magical. Light and profound. Featuring Jeannine Giffear, Kristi Meal, Patrick Cain, Jeff Vincent, Joe Smelter and more Allentown compatriots.

I am seething.

I've had a living will since age 20, and feel everyone should have one.

I have no comments on whether or not Terry Schiavo's feeding tube should be removed or replaced, but I sure as hell think that Palm Sunday's legislation reeks of fascism. I can't believe they made a law to "save" one person, while they send our soldiers to die and kill others all over the world, and let citizens die without health care here. I wrote my "representatives", but that word has less meaning by the second.

I need Cometbus. SF pals, any of you willing to watch for it at City Lights' chapbook section for me, and send me a copy when you can? I'll pay you.

I've been reading Aaron Cometbus' zine, whenever I can get my hands on it, since 1991 and first visited Berkely and San Francisco. I was able to find copies in Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis and New York City. I have maybe 12 of the maybe 50 issues.

I'm going to ask some of my local bookstores to look into carrying it, too.

For Those Who Support the Troops...

Frontline this week is excellent.

"In "The Soldier's Heart," FRONTLINE explores the psychological cost of war and investigates whether the military is doing enough to help the many combat veterans coming home with emotional problems. With unprecedented access to active duty service members at Camp Pendleton, a Marine base in San Diego, and through interviews with mental health experts both in and out of the military and members of a Camp Pendleton support group, FRONTLINE uncovers one of the underreported stories from the war in Iraq."
