R.I.P. Molly Ivins

"We are the people who run this country," Ms Ivins said in the column published in the Jan. 14 edition of the Star- telegram. " We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war."
Aug. 30,1944-Jan. 31,2007
Dear Molly, you've been ripped from our midst way too soon, but thanks so much for all you gave, we won't see the likes of you again any time soon.

Somewhere we might have done some good

Man of La Mancha

I got a chance to borrow a DVD of Man of La Mancha from the library today and I found it to be much more entertaining than I thought it would be. O'Toole's Don Quixote looks like the Burger King fallen on hard times and the effect is even more striking as he plays the Cervantes character acting as Quixote,with mask,wig,etc. in prison.
Reading Don Quixote is a must to understand the context of the scenes in this film, the novel is epic and I guess the stage production and the film were presented with the assumption that patrons would have an understanding of the story.
