Thank you Bill Cassel for reviewing this book, wait, I mean the pre-Lady-Fame meaning of thank you! Perfect summer reading, move it to the top of your towering stacks of books-to-read (you know who you are)! Ask for it at your local bookstores or do that other thing, that I won't mention in the same sentence. If you love the feel and look of books, please read the print version, as many of the nuances that Bill refers to, are lost on e-readers. I loved editing this book with Peter Santino, let me know what your experience reading it is like.
Wonderful to teach and be reminded constantly of the despair we once felt as though it had never been felt by anyone before us. I wonder if that's the only way to feel relief; we cannot survive constantly being bled by such despair. To teach implies perspective, distance. Or does it?
I don't care what Mr. Flatmo's critics say about the "obscenity" of prolific welding resources and labor used to create a frivolous, carbon-belching monstrosity "El Pupo" during the sixth largest extinction event on Earth that's being rapidly accelerated by carbon-caused climate change.
The U.S. is no longer an entrepreneurial manufacturing leader and our celebrity culture is offering today's youths an opportunity for a critical diversion from their malaise and decades of public divestment, outsourcing, record gaps in income, opportunity and reward. Celebrities want our forgiveness, they're not asking for permission!
Do we want more depressed youths, or do we want them wearing their favorite singer's logo at "El Pupo" concerts, to pour open their lives and data on Facebook and to adopt Apple as a lifestyle?
Celebrities are our kid's institutions!
Instead of a robust public education we have Zuckerberg's rescue of public schools, instead of a vibrant literary culture we have Oprah's book club, instead of investments in public health we have the Gates Foundation.
Celebrities aren't inviting our children to be just like them, celebrity's success is based on leaving everyone else behind.
A small price to pay to allow the rich to save America.

No one can reasonably expect a few folks dressed as Nazis to raise any eyebrows in Eureka.

I agree that science is very important but it makes no sense whatsoever to waste public subsidies, facilities and student fees focused on promoting and facilitating a celebrity at $50,000/hour.
HSU was just rated "number-one" in academic divestment in the CSU system by the Ca. Faculty Association while administrators get big salary increases and entertainment is fully funded?
There us $5.00 paid parking for this event.
"That's what a lot of comics do: travel, collect stories and report back on the human condition," he said. "I'm a culturally investigative journalist."
Future generations will understand that our self-indulgent travel habits only added to global warming. Travel reveals little additional knowledge about the "human condition", it merely reinforces the world-view you left home with.
Without Colbert and Stewart the field is wide open for satirists to feed the starving masses with the only source of real news modern media tolerates.
Entertainment, joy, energy, food, love...were always accessible within every human community.
We only lacked the proper education.

Someone needs to investigate how it's possible to have so many empty storefronts while the cost of renting remains overpriced.
They were great that night. Energetic and polished right out of the gate.
An irreverent classic!
John J. Bennett, best in the bidness. Dude can write!
who give a fuck,how is this fucking news
Never worked with Gary, but have seen some of his work. I have worked with Marilyn several times.
What amazing actors.
I am not surprised with a gifted director in Patrick Spike and two wonderful actors that this didn't receive this wonderful review.
I certainly miss being on stage in Ferndale.....what a wonderful venue.
This is Steve Scott, Kyle's Dad. The wreck occurred at 10:47 central time, Saturday morning January 31st in Robertsdale, Alabama. Kyle was just 13 minutes behind me. We had spent the night with my sister and brother-in-law after an 8 day epic pilgrimage road trip to the Florida Keys. I met his Mom there in 1967 when I was in the Navy. It was a joyful journey and he reunited with many cousins, two of whom I had not seen in 38 years. They all still consider me family even though his Mom (a wonderful lady) and I have not been together since 1976. There was never more than 5 minutes of silence in the car. Also, knowing Kyle, you will appreciate that we recited almost every line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, sang songs, made up more, spoke in tongues (authentic gibberish), discussed the meaning of life, and found rare plants forms. We agreed that the trip could not have been more perfect. It was a gift to me from God. Although I am having to go through Hellish things, I am at peace. I have even managed somehow to forgive the low-life that hit him from behind at 125 miles an hour. We are having a small private family gathering in Fairhope, Alabama Saturday 7th and next January 31st we will scatter his ashes at his favorite place in the Florida Keys. I cherish all your stories and comments and they keep alive his memory. I would love to hear from Kyle friends and fans. You can find my Facebook page on Kyle's page. My email is: Stephen.email@example.com. Please give me a week or so. Steve
