Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is a genuine inspiration. Schoolchildren a generation from now are gonna study his recent message to Russia:
You really did not understand anything? Don't understand who we are? What are we for? What are we talking about?
Read my lips: Without gas or without you? Without you.
Without light or without you? Without you.
Without water or without you? Without you.
Without food or without you? Without you.
Cold, hunger, darkness and thirst are not as scary and deadly for us as your "friendship and brotherhood.”

How the Seattle arts scene is pivoting during the pandemic.
(Cafe Nordo,) a dinner theater in Pioneer Square, has switched from running six or so short shows a year, mostly for a subscriber base, to fewer shows that run longer, hoping to attract a larger audience. The cabaret show, “Down the Rabbit Hole,” opened in [October] 2021 and will run through Nov. 19, meaning more tickets can be sold for each show, and if a ticket buyer gets sick, they’ll likely have a better chance of rescheduling, said Terry Podgorski, Nordo’s co-executive artistic director. With fewer breaks between shows, employees aren’t out of work multiple times a year, and fewer shows mean less sets to build, lowering costs.
