Subject: [Puptcrit] Correction. Alan's Birthday


My birthday is February 3, exactly one month from now.

I have heard some complaints from some African-Americans that Black History Month is also the shortest month (February), but when I was in Grammar School, I thought it was more ELITE, being a smaller month than the others. Also it is the birthday month for both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln( known as the Great Emancipator ) whose presidency is linked with the end of African slavery in the USA. It still perplexes me how good Christian folk could ever justify slavery for anyone, but people did just that.

There are some things I will never understand.

But one aspect of my fascination with Puppet Theatre is that it often is smaller scale than standard theater, takes less storage space, and has an intimacy that is accessible.

P.S.  When I have done interviews I try to gather some pertinent questions whose answers lead to more questions.

I welcome such questions from putcritters. Just sitting down with a microphone and a camera is not enough. Anything that stimulates the Memory is a big help!
