Re: “Look Out, Scout

Yup - read it more than once.

Anyway, according to The American Heritage Dictionary:

- lan�guor (l�'gər, l�'ər) noun - Lack of physical or mental energy; listlessness. See Synonyms at lethargy.

- tom�boy �noun - an energetic, sometimes boisterous girl whose behavior and pursuits, esp. in games and sports, are considered more typical of boys than of girls.

So you are saying that Harper Lee describes Scout as a lethargically boisterous person? Or is she listlessly energetic?

Re: “Look Out, Scout

By the way, the "languorousness" of a "tom-boy"? Is that like an "outgoing shy person"? Or a "jumbo shrimp"?

Re: “Look Out, Scout

You SHOULD feel like a jerk for writing this.

The girl is twelve years old, for crying out loud.

...sheesh...

Re: “Ghost Buster

What a hypocritical piece!

Gee, does the Pitch really have to do a Best Of issue EVERY year? EVERY YEAR? Oh, yeah, it helps you sell a lot of ads that can support YOUR health insurance and those articles you really want to write.

If a theatre or ballet or orchestra can make a little dough at the Holidays by bringing in family audiences who won't support all those other worthy efforts the rest of the year - what the heck is wrong with that? Seems to me that if the theatres do an admirable job of mounting those Christmas shows (which they do), there isn't a problem here - it just helps give us some more interesting art to see for eleven other months. Glass houses/stones, Mr Scherstuhl.
