The Sudbury Savoyards lost a talented leader and friend whom they loved very much. My sympathy and prayers go out to them and to Peter's family. (Let's leave the editorials and opinions for another day) ....Jean Killam (a friend of the Savoyards) You might want to look into going to the Savoyards' annual show in Feb. which I understand they are going to go ahead with, dedicated to and in memory of Peter. All of their profits go to world hunger.

My son had Peter Stark for a teacher years ago at the Solomon Schechter Day School in Newton. My son always has said that Peter was one of the best, if not the best teacher he had had. PS taught him how to think for himself and to look deeper into the literature and to not just take the words at face value. Also, to question the motives behind the authors in order to better understand the messages they are trying to convey.

@Jim you are correct about media outside US, I grew up in Italy and media showed far more graphic images/pictures than you ever see here.

If you ever watch the latino channels and other across the sea TV, what they show is pretty hard to take. On another note....Have you seen the Latino channels around here....Hokie Smokie...the women are all trying to see who can wear the least amount of clothes and get away with it. Of course the men who watch those channels around here don't complain....LOL Jim@ccfiile.com
