    May20 My dear friend, Barbara, invited me to a play reading at the Roundabout Theatre Company. The play is by Greg Pierce and is entitled: The Decoys. the storyline has, as a base, the tale of the two escapees from a high-security prison some years ago. They engineered their exit with the help of electric tools supplied to them by a prison guard who was also the girl friend of one. I seem to remember that one died, somehow, shortly after the escape and the other recaptured. I do remember that the girl friend was arrested and charged. However,the main theme of the play seems to be the conflicted emotions of father and son. I found the reading, interupted by scene settings by the Director, somewhat rambling and difficult to follow. My short-term memory failed to reinforce my imagination.

19th Precinct NYPD

Crime prevention week at Schurz Park

Manhattan is a conglomeration of village-like communities, each distinct to its own inhabitants. Mother-henning it over each community is an NYPD Precinct–ours is the 19th. Last week the 19th organised a community event in Schurz  park to highten public awareness of scams, frauds and identiy theft and the like and, how we ourselves can help to prevent them.

Entertainment and refreshments helped get the message across and the villagers turned up in quite respectable numbers.
