Re: “'Selma' Stumbles

What was so regrettable about Selma was that it falsely portrayed the role of President Johnson and completely left out the role of Rabbi Heschel who was a critical supporter of Dr. King. Rabbi Heschel was by Dr. King's side during the Selma march, Dr. King called him "my rabbi", and Dr. King was planning on spending Passover with Rabbi Heschel just before he was shot.

Re: “High Drama

I have heard that comment, about using the same actors repeatedly, from subscribers and theatre-goers, not just actors. Audience-fatigue is real. People want to see new talent, and a theatre will never grow if it becomes too inclusive, and the community doesn't feel it's "their community theatre." If I go to see Kiss Me Kate, Spamalot, Victor, Victoria, Boeing Boeing, Scoundrels,Funny Girl, etc. how likely is it I will want to see the same cast in Bonnie and Clyde? The talent is there, but even Barbra Streisand wore people out after a while, before she took a much-needed break.

Re: “High Drama

Seems we have a disgruntled actor...^^ boooo! What a negative outlook you have on this local company. It shows versatility, not a casting problem. Sonoma County needs to support local theatre and shows.

Re: “High Drama

As harsh as this will be, It'll probably help A LOT if the same actors weren't cast in all the shows. People don't want to go to see the same person every time they go and want to enjoy an amazing show. That's why no one wants to pay/donate. And no one wants to audition for things, knowing that they aren't going to get what they want anyway. Things are never going to change for the theatres, 6th street mostely, if things don't change casting wise.

Re: “Barn Raising

BIG things are happening with Lucky Penny. Barry and Taylor have put their all into creating a permanent home for theatre in Napa and the North Bay. Support it in whatever way you can.

Re: “In Vinum Medicine?

When describing the French who live long in spite of eating rich foods and drinking wine, why does no one mention that most is consumed with food? That's the way it was in my family, whose emigration from France was very long ago. We had a few uncles who sipped wine at other times. They did this in their cellars to avoid the frowns of their wives. But "le diner" and "apres diner" were when most people imbibed.

Re: “13 Year-Old Boy Fatally Shot by Sonoma County Sheriff's Deputies

Before we blame the ignorant parents, first look at the makers and retail outlet that sold that item and made a financial profit.

Re: “Rohnert Park: The Walmart Friendly City

There was no legal reason to deny. If the City Council had denied, Walmart could have sued, and overturned the denial in court, then gone ahead and built anyway.

The bias of the liberal media establishment never ceases to amaze me, but the onesidedness of this report reaches new heights. Or is it "plumbs new depths?"

Re: “Hotel Sebastopol?

I personally feel a bit boons-waggled by the Barlow. The majority of the offerings are booze related. I was under the impression it was to be more of a mixed craftsmen "tour, sample and learn" area.

Re: “Game Over

There's a reason why foie gras production has been outlawed in more than a dozen countries: It's an abomination. Anyone who cares about animals should leave foie gras off their plate.

Re: “Game Over

Investigations of foie gras farms have revealed ducks dying because their organs ruptured from overfeeding and birds suffering from kidney necrosis, spleen damage, bruised and broken bills, and tumor-like lumps in their throats. And of course, the birds must be slaughtered for foie gras, so unless they are going cheerfully and willingly to their deaths, there is no way it can be considered anything but cruel.

Re: “Game Over

If foie gras was "natural", it would just be called foie. The gras comes from overfeeding them until their livers become diseased and swell to up to 10 times the normal size, which is categorically cruel.

Re: “Family Ties

As a viewer and participant in North Bay Theater for the past 15 years, I highly recommend this production. Do not miss its limited (2 weekend) run. http://www.ci.rohnert-park.ca.us/index.asp…

Re: “The Eyes Have It

I doubt I'm the first, nor the last, to point out Von Busack's boo-boo in identifying Danny Huston's character in "Big Eyes." Huston played San Francisco Examiner columnist Dick Nolan. Von Busack mistakenly cited James Bacon, longtime columnist for the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. Not mentioning any names, but some movie reviewers ought to watch the credits before writing about the characters. Just sayin'....
