I won't pin that on Melanie, that was a Texan called Mercy, who will need all the mercy she can get when she gets to God's kingdom.
I hate the word racist...I much prefer the words 'I'm right' or
I hate the word anti-Semitic...I much prefer educated in the evil ways of the Jews.
I've got to laugh and make bad jokes about it otherwise I'd cry. Melanie has decided that the best way to promote discussion on the issue of racism is to delete my comments and have a nice chat with her pals who all agree with her. It seems a blow has been struck for freedom of discourse and it kinda reminds me of the Bush regime. Don't like what someone's saying? Pretend it never happened. Brilliant!
Today's shows went well, a lot of people came forward with praise and that's what it's all about as long as the audience leave happy...or in our case weepy. Although, same pattern as yesterday with the final show being the best in terms of emotional connection. My top lip is sore from blowing my nose a lot due to tears.
Went to see another show tonight that's on at the festival called 'En Route' by a company called Knavish Speech. It was great fun, full of play, humour and wonderful moments. Perhaps the best part being when one of the actors whispered into an audience members ear who then had to speak the words out loud...Trust me, you had to be there...
I'll leave you with the word complicity and the thought that if you watch someone do a terrible thing do you stand there and watch and pretend nothing has happened or do you raise your hand and say enough is enough?
