Re: “On the Comedic Potential of Dead Cats

Alison,

I think Bob Hicks and Barry Johnson (both formerly of the Oregonian and now both with their own arts blogs) were here for O Lovely Glowworm. But yes, I believe it pre-dates Ben Waterhouse at the WW slightly.

Re: “Wyden's Top Staffer Checks Healthcare Tweets

If the press isn't supposed to "push" members of government to their point of view, then what exactly do we pay you people for?

Wait, I get my news online so I don't pay you. Crap.

Re: “Why Save OBT? An Impassioned Screed

I don't think the ballet should receive MORE support than sports, but parity sounds good to me. Major League soccer is getting millions.

In fact, I think Merritt Paulson should pony up the $750k in exchange for free ballet lessons for his soccer players.

It is a proven fact that pro athletes who take ballet increase their flexibility, core strength and agility and decrease their on field injuries. It would be a good investment on his part.

Plus I bet the arts community would officially stop pitching a fit at the whole MLS craziness if Paulson showed a little karmic generosity. Matt! Get on it!

Re: “Why Save OBT? An Impassioned Screed

The ballet should receives "special treatment" because the ballet is the only arts org in Portland currently on the brink of closure. A broad show of public support for this institution now will build the groundwork for a network of support for other institutions in need of help in the future.

I don't personally go see a lot of live music, but I can tell you that if someone who contributed to the Ballet now, in their time of need, later asked me to contribute $5 to $20 help one of our storied music institutions stay afloat, I sure as hell would. Same applies here.

Engage now in supporting this art form (regardless of your personal preference for it) and you earn the right to request Portland's support for your own pet form of Portland based creative expression. Zoobombers? Open Studios? PIFF? Whatever your passion is, contribute to building a network to save OBT now, and it will be there for you should your institution suddenly find itself in need of support.

I love you Alison Hallett. Yer My Heeero.

P.S. Don't hate the playa. Hate the game.
