if we leave early we can eat at a truck stop on the way

Picked up copy of ‘Creative Loafing’ during recent Atlanta trip. As I marveled at the arts and cultural event to choose from, I came across a review of a play titled “Maria Kizito”. The story is about the complicity of two nuns involved in the death of Tutsi tribemembers who sought refuge at their convent during the Rwandan genocide. The play is being staged at the ‘7 Stages Theater’ in Atlanta.

Opening today’s Arts & Entertainment section of the Charlotte Observer I found a review for the same play. In Atlanta. Charlotte is so out of it culturally, they have to rely on other cities to provide adequate exposure to the arts. But you run the risk of having the 500 mile round trip being more memorable than the event you attend.

Charlotte is such a wannabe town.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
