I miss the quotable quotes. I miss the GOOD opening night vids. I miss actual reviews. When it comes to Word of Mouth, I miss actually reading what the "critics" had to say beforehand so I didn't have to fear what they were gonna say.

And I miss Ken Mandelbaum!

The reviewers were actually pretty good. I'm not even going to go into Word of Mouth.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

Ken Mandelbaum was the only reason to visit the site. I stopped going there after his departure.

Ken Mandelbaum. I wonder why they nonetheless kept his past columns available after his departure.

I was Dottie D'Luscia over there as well, but really didn't post all that much.
