Re: “Cutting thinning HAIR:
A new conspiracy theory about an old rock musical

While my own knowledge of Hair was previously limited to the "not-really-a-storyline-here" movie, I was excited to be seeing a production involving so many iconic songs. Sadly, the production was so poor, the songs so rushed, the flow so random, that I actually left at intermission (something I've never done before). I regretted any possibility of discouraging the performers (who ended the first half with full frontal nudity, which, while courageous, didn't seem to add anything to the story), but I can assure you that I wasn't the only theater-goer checking her watch during the interminable first half.

Re: “Julia Boseman won't back down

@brent You are mistaken. Marriage was not created as a religious institution, it was created for the purpose of property exchange and political expediency. Women were considered chattel, unable to own property, and used to parry favor among families. The "sanctity of marriage" argument is fatuous.

Re: “Julia Boseman won't back down

In the ideal world of an educated and open-minded society, Julia Boseman's sexual orientation would have ABSOLUTELY NO impact on the perception of her job performance. Sadly, homophobia, ignorance, fear, and hate still predominate in many parts of our country (of which Jesse Helms was a prime example). I congratulate Ms Boseman on her support of anti-bullying legislation and agree that by every possible standard, abstinence only education has failed miserably. After reading your article, however, those are really the only observations about her time in office that I come away with.
