SUMMER FANTASIES

Late Night, The Dead Don’t Die

Mindy Kaling, the screenwriter of Late Night and Emma Thompson’s co-star, may have written what qualifies as a fantasy, but it is a fantasy that smacks of truth, even if we’ve seen some of its plot before.

Miles David Moore

HARD TO BE A JEW

In my life, I've read everything about the Holocaust and haven't touched bottom. In fact, I see Nazis everywhere.

Elliot Feldman

THE NUCLEAR OPTION
Michael Bettencourt-Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comThe momentary popularity of the HBO series Chernobyl, about the explosion of reactor number four on April 25, 1986, at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant near the now -abandoned town of Pripyat, Ukraine, was an odd popularity.
Michael Bettencourt

CASTLE KEEP... REVISED
Arthur Danin Adler - Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.com
Obama, Barry Obama of Harvard, was a political naïf, a talker not a doer, a caretaker who minded eight years as they went by and made certain he would be a "historical" president, the great chalk mark on the historical list marking the 1st Black president.
Arthur Danín Adler

HOW I SPENT MYSELF
Claudine Jones-Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comWow judgmental much? have you looked at the price of rent? whose fault do you think that is? taking cheap shots at young folk not very helpful. I'm turning 70 this year by the way.
Claudine Jones

COMPLEXITY IS OUR BUSINESS
Nathan Thomas-Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.com
We had no trouble letting ex-Nazis into the country to help us with building rockets and missiles, but we have a problem with welcoming little brown babies from Mexico or Guatemala?.
Nathan Thomas

OUT OF SEASON
Patrick Walsh-Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.com
For a while I was secure, firmly fixed in the strength of summer:
On the beach I’d contemplate blue; in the mountains I had
Green to think about.  But let’s face it: summer’s through
Patrick Walsh

 AUDITION NIGHTMARES…LESSONS LEARNED 
Les Marcott-Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.com
Just because someone has an audition posted on some bulletin board
or some web site doesn’t mean it’s an all together legitimate enterprise. 
Do some research..  

Les Marcott

ON BEING AND NOT BEING A NATURE POET
Gergory Luce | Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comThe writer who has the gift of writing well and clearly
and who can avoid producing mere propaganda
is to be honored and encouraged.

TONI MORRISON
The Pieces I am

What comes to mind for the Steiny Road Poet after seeing this film is what a role model Morrison is for any writer, any woman, any African American.
