Yet, victims rise, valiantly or not, to face a continuous onslaught of greed and deception. November, Mamet's 2008 Broadway play, is a great forerunner to election day 2012. Is one candidate more greedy, more downright stupid than the other? Who is the lesser of two evils? The decision is yours, dear voter. (more...)
