“Fiddler on the Roof,” presented five straight days, was a tremendous commitment on the part of all who participated.
I didn’t know there was so much talent around here and we enjoyed the production immensely.
When Jay Kroeker jumped on the table and began singing his part with the long, long note, I thought at first it really was him singing, then after it had gone on for such a long time I thought it must be a recording, and then realized it really was him. I have never heard anything like that in my life.
I learned afterward he had played the same part 30 years ago when Tabor put on the same show.
We called the Camelis in Atlanta last week. When we asked Alex what he was doing, he said he was checking his e-mail, instant messaging a friend, doing his homework and listening to Bob Marley.
Multi-tasking begins at an early age these days.
I also asked him what he thought about the crisis in the financial world and he replied, “It’s crazy!”
I have to give our Kansas congressional delegates credit for voting against the bailout. I’ve been told I am too harsh on Washington and should say more about personal responsibility on the part of the masses and probably I should.
But, it only took another couple of hundred billion of pork to get it through the House, though. We can be so proud of the rest of them for this courageous act.

Or maybe I just have a short attention span.
It’s not such a great year to be a football fan in these parts.
The Chiefs are floundering big time, the Wildcats still haven’t found their way, the Jayhawks have had too many scary moments, and the Bluejays need some seasoning.
On a more positive note, the Trojans are fun to watch because you never know when Ishmael is going to break another long run for a touchdown.
I’m still listening to the Prairie Home Companion jokes.
What’s brown and sounds like a bell?
