This was a great play with great players. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. The mother, Amanda , was brilliant, I liked her enthusiasm , Tom was versatile and Laura was in her own world and sweet, Jim was not likeable to me, but he played the part. My only regret is that i cannot whistle, because they did an outstanding job! Loved it!!!

INNOCENTS ARE MORE AT RISK WHEN WE ALLOW MURDERERS TO LIVE
Do anti death penalty folks really care about innocents at risk? Of course.
But, for their leadership, they would prefer to see an additional 6.3 murdered innocents, instead of the execution of 1250 known murderers (2).
For some very well known leaders of the anti death penalty movement, their motivation is not protecting innocents, but protecting the lives of all murderers, no matter the cost in innocent lives. That's their moral choice.
THE LOW RISK OF EXECUTING THE INNOCENT
Depending upon review, possibly we have sent from 25-40 actually innocent people to death row, or about 0.4% of the 8400 so sentenced in the modern era, post Furman v Georgia (1972) (1).
So far, the evidence is that the death penalty is 99.6% accurate in finding actually guilty murderers guilty and 100% accurate in sparing those actually innocent from an unjust execution.
It is unlikely that there is a more accurate system.
There appears to be no proof of an innocent executed in the US, at least since the 1930's.
That includes the Troy Davis, Cameron Willingham and Carlos DeLuna cases.
It is much more likely that an actual innocent, sentenced to life, will die in prison, than it is that an actual innocent will be executed.
About 5000 prisoners, on average, under custody, die every year in the US (2).
On average, we have executed about 33 murderers per year since 1973.
In addition, at least 14,000 additional innocents have been murdered by murderers we have allowed to harm, again, since 1973, the year that US states started to re-enact new death penalty statutes after Furman v Georgia (2).
Since 1973, somewhere between 40,000 and 200,000 actual innocents have been murdered in the US by criminals who were under the government supervision of parole or probation, at the time of the murders. (2).
THE DEATH PENALTY: SAVING MORE INNOCENT LIVES
Innocents are more at risk without the death penalty.
Of all endeavors that put innocents at risk, is there one with a better record of sparing innocent lives than the US death penalty? Unlikely.
1) The Death Penalty: Saving More Innocent Lives
2) Innocents More At Risk Without Death Penalty
I'm looking forward to the first "big-screen" showing of GrowthBusters in Colorado Springs in several months. We'll be showing the new "Final Cut" of the film, and I'll be there. Don't be the last person in in Colorado Springs to see this film (C. Springs plays a staring role)!
GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth
This is not sponsored by the City of Manitou, everything is being provided by American Legion. It is still open to the public, but it not an official "Manitou Springs" event.
Lots of things for kids at good prices.
This performance is now in the TV SERIES " Live Music at Crystola Road House " and playing all over the world ! You may watch the raw uncut " as it was live that night " film clip that is fantastic at Rock Television. CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW ! http://yourock.rocktelevision.com/VideoPla…
This was a show unlike most others at Crystola and in the Springs in general. Michael Reese was nominated as "Best Guitarist of the Year" at the prestigious Los Angeles Music Awards for his work on his first solo CD, "Dragonflyer." and the friends, Kim Stone - monster bass player once part of power house Rippingtons and Spyro Gyra, Larry Thompson - one of Colorado's most accomplished performing and recording artists and former house drummer for Colorado's Caribou Ranch, and Jimmy Lange long time area keyboards wizard played for a small but appreciative crowd. The jams and solos on classic Allman Bros music and Michaels own tunes were amazing! DO NOT miss Michael wherever he plays, the friends are always around too. Next Space Jam is at Kinfolks Oct 13, 2012.

The Led Zeppelin Rock Symphony was a great idea and a wonderful concert. Some of the songs were: Good Times Bad Times, Dancin' Days, Kashmir, The Rain Song, The Ocean, Since I've Been Loving You, Going to California, Moby Dick, Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love, and Stairway to Heaven. Does anybody remember any others?
UPDATE! Please note that Public Free Day ends at 5pm today!
Love the B-52's and went to the concert tonight.
The B-52's were spot on tonight, loved them, but the experience was crap.
Sound system was so loud it was painful to the point of wincing, and we winced so many times that we only stayed about six songs before having to kiss it goodbye. We grew up on Rock and Roll, like it loud, but the system tonight was dreadful. Not sure who controlled the volume and sound board but they blew it terribly. Distorted. Garbled. Painfully loud.
TSO at World Arena was LOUD and left our ears ringing, but tonights show was a whole other scale of loud.
Chris Isaak at PPC was excellent, loud, but enjoyable, could understand the words, etc. Great show.
So meh, we left, and won't go to any more if this is the best that PPC can do for us....
This is a wonderful tour but it is NOT at the address above. It is located at the corner of Uintah St. and Glen Avenue downtown.
This event is NOT at the address listed above. It is at the corner of Uintah and Glen downtown.
We saw them last Saturday, Sep. 8th, 2012...excellent! Jason, the bass player, is world-class. The singer was great, too, and the guitar player was up to the task.
There's actually no cover for this show.
OPENING SEPTEMBER 14:
God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza
Dinner With Friends meets Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf as the thin veneer of civility gives way to knock-down-drag-out hostility in this comedy of manners by celebrated modern playwright Yasmina Reza. Pretenses topple and illusions dissolve, helped along by some unpalatable truths washed down with a liberal helping of rum. Don’t miss our all-star cast in this 2009 Tony Award winner!

Poetry 719 and their event "Hear Here" is a brilliant sythesis of diversity and endless amounts of talent. The event welcomes anyone from any different background and allows them to express themselves in whichever way they choose into an audience of understanding eyes and open ears. The family-like atmosphere which holds no discrimination and welcomes all is complemented beautifully by the environment. The Movement Arts Community Studio is a spacious venue fully equipped with large west-facing windows so that the nostalgia of Colorado sunsets over the Rocky Mountains floods in and lights up the whole room. Hear Here and the diversity of the members brings about a copius influx of talent to the Colorado Springs community. Artists, Poets, Singers, Musicians, and the like attend Hear Here and unleash their talent in the finest and purest forms that is never in ill-taste. This is an event for any and all people, and it should be known that, whether one wants to speak or be spoken to, the community and Hear Here will welcome you with open hearts.
