Re: “Ida

I can understand Bert's sensitivity--- but I also think it is extremely important to remind people that many non-Jewish resistance members and people- many of whom were Christians- who dared aid the Jews, POW's, gypsies, communists, homosexuals, etc were also slaughtered in the camps. They also share the right to enact memorials on those locations. As soon as any population invests in it's "other-ness" it becomes as potentially dangerous as its former oppressor.

I think it is a valid exploration of the many stories that came out of that conflict. I have (adopted) family members who were born Jews, converted to evade persecution, and then chose to remain with their new faith for both philosophical reasons, as well as (or sometimes solely) for reasons of community. One cannot judge the experience or choices of those who have lost everything.

Re: “Artist on Artist: Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran talks to Mia Park

@ Sara: YES. She is so full of herself, yet she is little more than a groupie who just wants to hear herself talk. She was beyond sleazy to me, and seeing her spout such ridiculous pseudo spiritual drivel is absurd. I'm ELATED that Nick Rhodes is sharp enough to circumvent the steaming pile of BS. blaaarf.

Re: “Artist on Artist: Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran talks to Mia Park

I despise Mia Park. She has no scruples, but spends a lot of time maintaining her hipster wannabe/yoga teacher act. Just gross. Can't wait until the Reader home page features someone/thing less odious.

Re: “What happened to the Abbey Pub?

Indeed, the Abbey was transformed into a Bennigan's-esque douche-pub. Plus they have not been booking anything remotely interesting. I blame it on this: My boyfriend at the time booked a show there and they pulled some funny business about paying them and the talent. You do that and no one wants to do business with you anymore. The Abbey was always known as a friendly live venue. They have squandered that reputation and now they are seeing the result of bad karma business practices.
