    Neither Timber Creek High School sophomore saw Keller ISD’s decision to cancel their performance of “The Laramie Project” — which included more than 70 students — coming. Students plan to voice their concerns to the school board Feb. 29. “I was a little blindsided,” Sampson, 16, told the Fort Worth Report. “It was a role I really wanted to perform. I was a little dejected when I heard it was being canceled.” “The Laramie Project” is a play that recounts the aftermath of the murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student who was beaten and tied to...

    Leftist actor Robert De Niro is ready to move past his portrayal of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live. “[A]s Robert Mueller vanishes from public scrutiny, my opportunities to play him will fade, as well,” he wrote in an op-ed for the Washington Post on Monday. “It’s okay. I’m ready to move on. I think I could do a really good Jerry Nadler, my own great congressman and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.”

    A new attempt by Hamas to entice Israeli children to play with incendiary balloons includes choosing colorful balloons and attaching lights and toys to them, Yediot Ahronot reported. According to the report, a cluster of balloons recently found in the Eshkol Region was attached to an explosive toy. The balloons, found late at night, were colorful and included colorful flashing lights. Kibbutz Be'eri's secretary, Yaniv Hagi, told Yediot Aharonot: "Incendiary balloons land in our kibbutz at all hours of day and night. They arrive with flashing and sparkling lights, and some of the balloons have smiley faces on them, so...

    A local theater group is putting on a play, "Church and State," "A topical look at gun violence, religion and politics that is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting." "In the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. Senator running for re-election candidly questions his belief in God to a blogger, perhaps crushing his re-election hopes. There are no easy answers in this topical look at gun violence that is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting. Interested in the in-depth Backstory? Read it here. We'll also have copies at the theater." I'd go and...

    Once again partisanship is rearing its disgusting head at the pre-confirmation debate over Brett Kavanaugh.  Long gone are the days when a judge’s qualifications were the only factors considered.  After all, Antonin Gregory Scalia was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 1986, and in 1993 Ruth Bader Ginsburg had only three dissenting votes. A play about Scalia, The Originalist, shows how Americans should be willing to accept a viewpoint other than their own, something the Senate is unwilling to do. It is now playing in New York, and is also available to stream.  With all the divisiveness going on...
  • Curtain Falls For Good on NBC's Extremely Liberal High School Drama 'Rise'

    05/17/2018 2:18:42 AM PDT · by Enterprise · 21 replies ^ | May 16, 2018 | Dawn Slusher
    “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” This famous quote attributed to Dr. Seuss applies to many things in life, but NBC’s high school drama Rise is not one of them. If anything, we should cry because it happened, and smile now that it is finally over. Unlike the show’s title Rise, every episode in this debut season continued to sink to new lows, so we can also smile over the news that the curtain has been lowered for good on the series. The show takes place at Stanton High School, where theater teacher Mr. Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor),...

    DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. - The Douglas County school district is investigating a complaint that a 7-year-old girl played a racist character in a school play. In a video of the play, Anastasia Bertram can be seen holding up a sign saying, "Please go home" on one side and "Cursed is the man who integrates" on the other side. Anastasia's parents said she was asked by her teacher, Jamila James, to fill the role of a white girl opposed to school desegregation during a March 2 play at Burnett Elementary School. Her teacher told the parents Anastasia volunteered after another student...

Not a body. Just some already-fallen branches. Nonetheless, the onlooker called the cops.Officers interrogated the boy, who said he was trying to build a fort for himself and his friends. A local news site reports the police then “took the tools for safekeeping to be returned to the boy’s parents.”Elsewhere in America, preschoolers at the...
  • High School play cancelled after activists object to “colorblind casting,” demand race be considered

    Ithaca High School’s spring musical was “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” A story whose message is one of inclusiveness and acceptance should be welcomed and encouraged. A white actress was cast for the role of Esmerelda, prompting a student black actress to quite the play, saying, “It shows you that theater wasn’t made for you. And it shows you that, if you can’t get the parts that are written for you, what parts are you going to get?” The resignation prompted Students United Ithaca to make a list of demands for the school, one of which was, “STOP the racist...

    Even though the modern world isn’t any more dangerous than it was thirty or forty years ago, it feels like a more perilous place. Or, more accurately, we inhabit the world today in a way that’s much more risk averse; for a variety of very interesting and nuanced reasons, our tolerance for risk, especially concerning our children’s safety, has steadily declined.So we remove jungle gyms from playgrounds, ban football at recess, prohibit knives (even the butter variety) at school, and would rather have our kids playing with an iPad than rummaging through the garage or roaming around the neighborhood.Unfortunately,...

    Jack Posobiec and Laura Loomer turned up in New York City’s Central Park tonight and caused chaos during the production of Julius Ceaser. Laura Loomer ran up on stage screaming, “This is political violence against the right and it’s unacceptable!” The production company halted the play as the crowd shouted down Loomer telling her to get off the stage. Security personnel ascended on the stage to escort her off. Posobiec, who filmed the altercation, then started shouting at the audience calling them Nazis and “Goebbels.”

    In February of 1901, Walter Berry, a lawyer and member of élite society in New York, expressed a regret in a letter written to his close friend Edith Wharton. “How I do wish I could run on to see the first rehearsal of the Shadow,” he wrote. At the time, Wharton, who was thirty-nine years old, was not yet a novelist, having only published shorter fiction and poetry, as well as co-authoring, with Ogden Codman, “The Decoration of Houses,” an 1897 book about interior design. But she was a budding playwright, and, as two scholars have just deduced in an...

    Marxists of the 21st century (not an oxymoron; they exist) have identified a new threat to the glorious proletariat revolution: PokemonGo. Of course, this is par for the course. The Soviet Union banned The Lord of the Rings. Leftist hero (and murderous thug) Che Guevara worked to suppress Jazz music in communist Cuba. The People's Republic of China censored Back to the Future because the regime thought that time travel undermined law and order. And on and on. Now Marxist sympathizers at the socialist magazine Jacobin think the new Pokemon-themed iPhone app—which is currently being enjoyed by millions of people...
