For me, this weekend meant the Phoenix Theatre’s production of “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” Mickey Rooney’s visit to the Warren Performing Arts Center, and screenings of a few of the films we’ll be reviewing prior to the Indianapolis International Film Festival in April.

How about yours?

What was you’re A&E weekend like? Anybody get to Three Mo’ Tenors with the ISO? Or The Temptations at Clowes Hall? Any Grammy-watchers among you?

What did you see, read, watch or experience?

I look forward to reading your thoughts.
  • Watched the Grammys and was very, very bored by 9 p.m. Tina Turner and Beyonce put on a good old is rockin' Tina anyways?

    I don't think giving Amy Winehouse so much attention is necessary, especially because most of her fame comes from her addiction to illegal drugs. Kayne West also needs to have an attitude adjustment.

    Overall, I didn't really enjoy the show. But it was the 50th anniversary and they paid tribute to a lot of classic musicians and good ol' I guess that is understandable. Vince Gill was very humbled when he was presented his award from a Beatle. That was touching.

    Friday I attended the Reba & Kelly concert, and for any nay-sayers, it was an amazing show! Kelly is truly talented and Reba is just...well...a legend in her own right.
  • Ms. Turner was born November 1939.
  • I saw The Temptations Friday night courtesy of the IBJ. It was a lot of fun. There is a lot of energy still left in the group. The one original member of the group, Otis, said he has been doing this for 47 years. It must keep him young because he still had the moves. Thanks for the opportunity to see the show.

  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
