Re: “Art of Survival

I am so proud and amazed over your accomplishments.

It is true, the thought of living additional years in this torture makes me long for death.

I can not bear this torture any more.
I am alone in pure hell with a broken body & broken brain just thrown to the wolves.

Bless you sweetie.
Thank you for raising awareness.

Re: “Art of Survival

Finally, a true story about lyme and what it does to people. I left a prestigious radio career due to Lyme an I was forced to move to Maine where I thougt it more affordable, only to realize they refuse to recognize it. The author is correct... I came here with almost half-a-million dollars...gone in four years. I live in a house with NO water or indoor plumbing and have to travel 13 miles into the woods to get my water...and I have lowered myself to begging the state, the federal government, anyone for help. Nothing. So yes, Final Exit is an option for many of us because I can barely move, nevermind having to fend off bobcat, bears, and coyote, just to get water. All the while fighting neurological and physical pain on a 24/7--365 days of the year. Thank you for being a voice that most is us can no longer be. Blessings. Shantiann

Re: “Clown Around

I was hoping for more of your usual column which is a review of the show. We often choose what we do based on your comments. This is more of a description...darn.
Still love Sondheim and will most likely attend.

Re: “Curtain Calls

Thank you to Alexa, Barry, David, Harry, and anyone else for the fun evening of awards for Sonoma County Theater. It was a blast seeing people honored for their work, meeting new people and visiting with those whom I have not seen for ages. Thank you for the nomination and thank you for honoring the Marquee theater in your name. It has inspired me to make a Marquee Theater Group on FB to gather company alumni and memories. -Jacinta Gorringe

Re: “Until Death

False advertising is used to pass assisted suicide laws. If they are really supporting individual choices and rights they would provide an ordinary witness to the self administration of the lethal dose. Without a witness they are promoting forced euthanasia.
I learned after caring for my wife during her last 18 months of declining autonomy. I was surprised that you can work on 4 hours sleep. I focus on how these bills are written, their omissions and how they could be administered to my wife.

Note much abuse has been documented in the Oregon assisted suicide system.
See the federal case of Thomas Middleton who was killed with the Oregon law for his assets. Note that the Oregon system did not detect this abuse due to a lack of transparency. Even organ traffickers can thrive under cover of this covert system.
Respectfully submitted,

PS:
The promoters have done the public a disservice. They are guilty of false advertising. Their ordinary bait and switch campaign is demonstrated by their chanting "must self-administer" then they do not provide in their legislation for an ordinary witness of the "self-administration". The difference is that a witness would honor individual rights, without a witness it allows euthanasia. If the individual changed their mind no one would ever know. And we know that 30% do change their mind according to Oregon's records. This omission eviscerates the flaunted safeguards putting the entire population at risk of exploitation by the medical industrial complex, organ traffickers and predatory heirs. Does that sound like a dangerous public policy to you?

Re: “Naughty and Nice

Hard to call it a "solitary boo" when a comment gets 7 likes.

Re: “Naughty and Nice

To Serena Goldsmith's quibble over the "blatantly edited" use of a critical review. Agreed that the review is carefully worded, but the producers leave out the critic's issues with Coward's play which are notoriously difficult for modern audiences. Your consternation reminds me of a review of the original 1941 production: "London received Mr. Noel Coward's ghoulish farce with loud, though not quite unanimous acclaim. There was a solitary boo – from an annoyed spiritualist, presumably."

The performance at 6th Street that I saw was polished, well-paced, uniformly well-performed with a very hard veneer that Coward is known for.

Re: “Naughty and Nice

This review of Blithe Spirit is diplomatically written but translates as overall negative to any intelligent reader.

So it's disturbing (and more than a little offensive) that 6th Street Playhouse manages to twist it into a positive review by taking some of the more diplomatic words out of context. Hours after the Bohemian hit stands, the theater sent a promotional email to its distribution list that included this blatantly edited version of the review:
".....the Rocky Horror of drawing-room comedies......delightfully engaging performances by David Yen as optimistic author Charles, Gina Alvarado as the ghostly femme fatale Elvira and Lennie Dean as the well-meaning medium Madam Arcati..... visually magical."---David Templeton, The Bohemian

This is a mockery of the original. As a former theater critic, I cry foul.

Re: “Pretty Theft

It's always struck me as odd that ppl in Santa Rosa won't drive from Montgomery Village to Railroad Square to see a show, because "It's too far". But plenty will travel to SF and points beyond.
