    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

News break!

Only last week, our local Starbucks was blown up. After a somewhat cursary examination by legions of  senior security officials it was thought to be a prank of brainless teenagers. Last night, the building next to mine was evacuated and the tenents moved to hotels nearby. The tunnelers have be monitoring it for some time and it is begining to lean backwards and sideways (encroaching on our space) at an increasing rate and has now reached the unsafe condition. It has always been an eyesore and we hope that it will now be demolished. In the meantime, the bars next door will be out of business.Star1

Our sidewalk has been cordoned off. Probably for years!
