Re: “The future of science ain't what it used to be

"no one actually expects Trump to understand E=mc2." Very few people understand Einstein's theories, as evidenced by the fact that the equation, as printed in the article above, is totally incorrect.

Re: “Reader: Public media is essential to democracy

If you ask an extreme right winger, he will aver, "public broadcasting is indeed the handmaiden of the Progressive Left." If you ask a progressive, he will tell you public broadcasting is a tool of the moderate right.

Re: “Cirque du Soleil: Quidam

Looks like comments are posted newest to oldest. Please see my first, original comment below, starting with "Hello, I would very much encourage......." It is odd recommending supporting The World Arena, as this is where the cruel circuses take place. I would love to support The World Arena; I just wish they could get more things like this and thrive, without the other.

Re: “Cirque du Soleil: Quidam

I would very much encourage going to this event. This is a circus with amazing feats of human talent, and, unlike other circuses, does not involve "entertainment" via cruelty. It does not take breaking the spirits and backs of animals; it does not involve cruelty to animals, such as bullhooks (hidden in sleeves even during performance on-stage) - to get animals to contort and do things against their natures. One site to visit regarding circus animals (and please boycott the circus and rodeo when they come to town this summer; Denver and Boulder have already ousted them (at least, Boulder has) - is www.ringlingbeatsanimals.com. Please enjoy all the amazing talent this world of artistry has to offer, but without its being at the sacrifice of innocent sentient beings. Julie Shavin

Re: “Poetry party

I just now saw that the poems are here. At first they didn't show. I believe there are two versions of the ending, with the thought's being the same. I may be recalling the version online......

Re: “Poetry party

"Red Alert" is among the favorites of mine. If you recall, the ending is something like "for years, I thought it was wolves I had to beware." In other words, it was never wolves, but the mother. Nothing can prepare one for mothers of any kind. I have heard audiences nervously, slightly giggle at the end of this one when Lois has performed it, and I have heard them outright gasp. It is a very powerful piece.
