There is a certain patterning, a certain cadence of words, a tonal quality which makes a work uniquely itself, and strangely of its time. Such a work is William Styron's novella, The Long March, called "one of the two or three distinguished novellettes of the last thirty years" by John Aldridge, but otherwise curiously ignored by the critics. I say "curiously" because the pattern of the work so closely reflects the tenor of our own time. This may not be evident after a cursory glance.
The scholarship, established in memory of the late actor David Coleman Dukes, is awarded annually to a third-year Theater Arts student working toward a career in stage acting.
Kathy Muske Paying Attention Here are some thoughts about ethical protocols and judging of award candidates. I mention this because judges are expected to follow rules. There are obvious cases where a judge must recuse herself.
The form's questions included in paraphrase, in memory something like the following: Does this person owe you money or do you owe this person money? The rules always apply - judges should know when to recuse themselves.
Again, instead of acting to correct these violations or stepping down! This should be enough for any of us to re-think our addiction s to FBook. The customers of FB are not "us" - they are the corporate and political entities that "buy" into FB, in effect - "buy" us all.
I've also found that almost inevitably, each time I register an "opinion" on a post on FB - there is ugly blowback, if I speak out "against" the sentiments of the post. Recently I noticed a post that asked a specious question "opposing" the "three meals a day, etc.

When women are incarcerated or even detained detention can last longer than a year, despite "habeas corpus" - their children routinely become "wards of the state" - which means that they are put in foster care.
Mothers do not know where their children are placed and have to fight to get them back upon release. Please see recent New Yorker article on incarcerated women in Oklahoma.
Recent horrific "border" crimes against humanity in separating immigrant children from their parents - are routinely suffered by women who lose their children to the "system".
Could it have anything to do with Trump's unbelievable seeming recent support for prison reform. Maybe the huge corporate structure that profits each time an individual or immigrant! This, to my mind, is the type of "loaded" post by an unknown source that is typical of Facebook's enabling of political influence in "hidden" drops into FB "consciousness".
I do not expect anyone to agree with my opinions on this or anything else. I understand that it is v difficult to remove oneself from FB - but I intend to do so gradually.
My web designer is posting this for me - I'm recovering from the flu and other struggles. Please consider voting Common Good! All readings take place at 8pm in the Spiegel Auditorium at 56 Brattle St. I apologize to those who keep asking to join my "network".
The only network I belong to is the one that is in my overloaded memory! More beach fun - love this shot! My beautiful daughter Annie, post-reading, with Mom! God who's a woman has spoken to me through my pal, Pope Frank. Hold onto your hats or whatever keeps your hair on your head!
Justice is on the way!! Ora pro nobis, domina vobiscum. As you can see, I have been granted a halo through which I receive Messages from Her - telling me what the future is for the Orange Diabolical.
