Aww, thanks, Erik. Well, it occurred to me later that this woman must not know a whole lot ofRead More practicing Catholics.Oddly I am friends with more practicing Catholics on FB than observant (or secular) Jews. One need not be a nun or professor at a seminary to know that when you marry in the Catholic church, you have to agree to raise your kids Catholic. This, uh, presupposes the existence of children to raise (I know, my inferential capacity is simply blinding!) She seems equally ignorant about observant Jews, particularly Boomers. My friend, raised conservative/Orthodox in Kansas City, says that from a young age it was impressed upon him and his fellow Hebrew school students that they were the FIRST generation post-Hitler to be raised in America and that it was up to THEM to marry in the faith and raise Jewish children to replace what Hitler eradicated. The only "bizarre" thing is this unpleasant (and obtuse) woman's chutzpah, first in taking me to task for writing a review for a casual local blog in a style she personally dislikes (but about whose tradition or history she clearly hasn't the foggiest notion ), second in missing the obvious fact that my review was a direct response to the LA Times piece she links, and third, for blaming her poor reading skills on a critic who makes free use of allusion. Oy vey! (I will say she had the good sense to make herself scarce as there likely wasn't room in the mouth to stick her foot in it any further)

IN blaming, it should read in the third part of the parallel sentence in penultimate paragraph :)

This was the oddest review I have ever read, only to be surpassed in it's oddness by the commentsRead More following the review. I am actually in agreement with the first gal who commented here. That the author is her own ontological starting point ( please ) does not give her license to waste the reader's time discussing anything she chooses. This writer needs a thicker skin. She displays an almost pathological need to defend herself.

IMPORTANT addendum: I have parked in the Target lot thrice but got kicked out once and thereforeRead More missed the show. You cannot park there but apparently the guy (very belligerent I might add) was not on duty You must park (7 dollars unless you're a subscriber and got a pass) on the other side of the theater in the white building with underground parking and a very nice female attendant). Target closes at 9:30 and curtain is at 8PM. But even with a largely empty lot, the man followed me out and interrogated me (I didn't think to dissemble as I had no idea parking there was a no-no.) In the large, Gil Cates theater, you might be able to sneak in late. But in the small theater with only one door, NO one can go in late (or before intermission if there are two acts) because it would disrupt the show.
