I think Molina could use just a titch of edge. There was something...off-putting about Carver in the original that seemed very right. It's a different quality than Esparza would bring, but I'd be interested in seeing him paint with some different colors.
Growl...oh...how I would love to play the role. And you are so kind to suggest it. But I'd probably not even go in for the audition. I do think, like the principal cast of EVITA,&nb

People should not be able to openly fly that flag."
This is a conclusion that I'm coming around to. Before a Nazi/white supremacist murdered a wom

Yet I can understand those who believe that words that don't explicitly call for violence can do so implicitly. I just don't entirely agree with that idea (at this point in time, at least)."
You last line is the crux of my issue. And it's the thin
I'm happy to wander in the fog. Because that's right where I am at this point. I don't like reassessing my absolute belief in free speech, but it's happening. When history (at least the history of the last century plus) shows us that white supremacy and fascism leads to unspeakable violence, what are we to do? This hasn't been something I've had to deal with in my lifetime. It's always been theoretical.
Serious question (and isn't it bizarre that we feel the need to type that...just to make sure people know we're 'not coming for them'??)
Do you think that there are ideas that simply are repellent? I find the refusal of one person to acknowledge another person's request to honor their full humanity repellent. Not because I believe it is repellent, but because it is repellent. Does that make sense? For you, c
I reject the categorization of what's happened in this thread as 'standing in the shining light of righteousness.' I did that yesterday when I was at jury duty and was asked if I thought it should be legal to carry an 1/8th of an ounce of cocaine. My answer of 'yes' was in no way going to change the law. But it also probably kept me from being sat on the jury where I might have actually affected some real change.
Feel free to think that I'm haranguing all you'd like. I don't care.
But what GeorgeandDot has written in this space (and in other threads as well) is a request that her full humanity to honored. Not one single person in this thread believes Dave28282 can ever have his mind changed. I mean...his obsessive posting about race and how we should all just listen to him? Talk about haranguing.
There is a person in this thread asking that others don't deny the fullness of her humanity (which, does, in fact, include racial heritage) and others just simply asserting that she's wrong in this request.
Jesus F-ing Christ, please take a step back and realize how terrible that is!
Every single time I see someone who didn't grow up in the States (and therefore doesn't have the kind of experience of what it is to deal with race in this particular country) try to say something insightful about race relations in America, I was to throw an egg at a toddler. I'm looking at you, Andrew Sullivan, and your bulllsh*t about the f*cking Bell Curve.
The Charity/Oscar elevator scene from SWEET CHARITY is fantastic fun. Also from SHE LOVES ME is the the I Don't Know His Name scene between Amalia and Ilona. For pure book scenes, there are at least one or two between Diana and Natalie from NEXT TO NORMAL. The Fromme/Moore scenes from ASSASSINS are stellar.
