Why Conservatives Should
Fear The Market

Instead of embracing markets, conservatives should work to mitigate them at every possible turn so that the acidic power of money does not eventually corrode everything they hold dear.

Arthur Meiselman
Viewings and An Actor's Lament
I decided not to avoid the timely viewings of as many of this year's Oscar nominees that I could take. I took the five leading contenders: The Hurt Locker, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, Avatar and Crazy Heart. The first four can be categorized in a phrase: they are video games.

Nathan Thomas
Going to the Roots
Stanislavsky noted a century ago the problems of asking actors to stuff their heads with empty words. Words then memorized without reference to human impulse will be read either without any connection at all (words on "the muscles of the tongue" as Stanislavsky put it) or recited in cliché ways.

Claudine Jones
Soar Throat
 I've almost made it through the last five weeks of rehearsals & performances & still have sinus issues & blocked Eustachian tubes, but this? For my upcoming birthday, I should ask the gods for a dispensation? Ha.

O Passion, Where Art Thou?
We are too removed. But when it comes time to show healthy emotion and deep thought, we, the consumers, cringe with embarrassment and falter.

Requiem For Freud's Sisters
The founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, managed to escape to London from Nazi-occupied and violently anti-Semitic Vienna in 1938, but left his four elderly sisters in Vienna from where they were eventually transported by cattle car to the Treblinka concentration camp and died in its gas chambers. This sad fact is not widely known—at best it's a footnote in biographies of Freud—but it's full of implications about Freud himself, his attitude towards women, as well as such universal themes as rivalry, anger, and denial.

A Play by
Barbara F. Lefcowitz
