The Play’s Not the Thing PDF Print E-mail
Commentary/Politics - Letters to the Editor
Tuesday, 26 September 2006 22:45

Mike Schulz should take his own advice. For someone who rags on authors so much, he sure missed the point of his article "The Playwright Did It." (See River Cities' Reader Issue 599, September 20-26, 2006.) It's a play review, not a playwright review. While he spent seven-eighths of his time harping on the writing, he spent little time critiquing the production itself, save for a few passing lines. Of course, I'm glad no one in the cast got raked across the coals as much as the author was. Hopefully he keeps his eye on the ball next time.

I am writing this letter on behalf of the many retired teachers in Illinois and those who plan to retire. We have an election in November for governor, as well as some representatives and senators. It is imperative that we know where these candidates stand in regard to the recent under-funding and diversions of funds for the teacher retirement pension systems.

I am saddened and frustrated (again) by the reports of another young person killed, here where we live - the Quad Cities. The latest victim is a 19-year-old girl from Davenport who was shot while sitting outside talking, minding her own business.

My nephew Jack is in the Army in Iraq. He's been there a year, and his unit was scheduled to come back to the States two weeks ago. In fact, a few hundred made it back to Alaska, and a few hundred more to Kuwait, before they were told that their tour in Iraq had been extended four months, and they were going to Baghdad.
