You must submit

In my crystal ball, I see no musical for 2015 for Timberlane. A decision is made, The End. Infighting is only going to cancel future shows. “Sweeney Todd” is not for elementary students or seniors, and the Performing Arts Center was built by all, for all. So find another show and shut up or don’t present a musical in 2015. It will not be missed. I thought students were taught to follow rules. Obviously, Timberlane is lacking in this..

Take him down

So let me get this straight. Leonard Degnan is convicted of crimes against the city of Lawrence and is being jailed for those crimes. Yet if we take our children into City Hall, they can then see his portrait hanging in City Council chambers with all the past mayors. What a joke! Take it down. And while you are at it make sure you think twice about putting Willy’s picture up there too as you will only have to take it down eventually.

What an act

Having seen President Obama’s award-winning performance on TV news the other night, I must admit his delivery was worthy of any I’ve ever seen in movies. However, I could not forget two favorite sayings: Figures lie, and liars figure. And, a saying of President Lincoln that you can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time. There were more holes and untruths in his speech than a sieve. It’s a wonder his TelePrompTer didn’t melt.

A big thank-you

I want to thank a lovely lady who gave me a bouquet of daffodils because I gave her a lovely smile in return when she smiled at me. I was sitting in the store’s wheelchair being pushed by a friend as we were in line to cash out. I want to thank her. She made my day and touched my soul. I also want to thank Mr. and Mr. Carney, who got me a wheelchair when I went to vote at the town election as I am unable to walk. That was very nice.
