So did you get dragged to see "The Andrews Brothers" with Actors Theatre of Indiana? Did Christopher Cross leave his Symphony on the Prairie concert on a high note? Feel ancient at the "Dynasty and Divinity" show at the IMA?

What did you catch this weekend?

Your thoughts?

  • West Side Story
    Does Franklin count? Saw West Side Story at the historic Artcraft. Fantastic and inexpensive.
  • Church Basement Ladies 2
    I took my mom to opening night of Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping at Beef & Boards on Thursday night. Having missed the B&B production of CBL 1 last year, we weren't sure what to expect. Even without seeing the first one, CBL 2 didn't disappoint. It was both heartwarming and funny. Being descended from Minnesota Norwegian Lutherans, I had moments if eerie discomfort as I felt my grandmother and great aunts were right there in the room.
  • Derek Webb and Sandra McCracken
    Great concert Sunday night at Redeemer Presbyterian Church by Derek Webb, Sandra McCracken, and Kenny Meeks. Wonderful, intimate setting!
  • Indigo Girls
    Saw a terrific Indigo Girls concert at the Palladium Sunday night. Almost two straight hours of great music in front of an enthusiastic crowd.
  • Weekend at the Prairie
    Christopher Cross was a good show! The first half featured music from TV shows from the 50s-70s, so that was fun. Then Chris sang the second half. He did the biggies and mixed in some new stuff. I thought his voice didn't sound very strong for his opener ("Sailing"), but he got better. He closed on "Ride Like the Wind," of course.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
