Tom Lehrer is Smug

The Drama Onion

Saw Rent tonight with some Circles folks. We had a great time, the movie was very well done and almost as emotional as a live performance. It does lack that extra emotional intimate punch of watching people put on the performances and knowing that they have to pull this up so many times a day, so many times a week... but still, worth a view.

On the way back home on the T, Bob and Kimber and I found an envelope sitting, discarded, on the seat next to us. "What's in it?" I asked. "Besides anthrax." Bob picked the letter out, read it, started to make faces, and Kimber and I had to find out why. Short of masking the names, I am reproducing the note verbatim under the cut. It is like peeling back the layers of a giant drama onion. It just keeps getting worse as you go along.

I will award the Brass Figligee with Bronze Oak Leaf Palm to the first person who can fully piece the entire saga together and provide a synopsis, including perhaps a timeline, for all.
