  • Prato Haggadah at LV Art Museum
    The Las Vegas Art Museum is exhibiting an interesting slice of cultural history generally unknown outside of the academic or Judaic community. Most are familiar with Medieval manuscripts of the Christian faith, evoking images of brown-robed monks slaving away in distant monasteries, destroying their eyesight with flickering candlelight. The Jewish tradition produced a...

    If you read my previous post mentioning Sheila Z.

  • Vietnam vs Iraq
    If you have ever had to write one of those essays about compare and contrast, you will get the gist of the Black Mountain Institute Panel Discussion on The Vietnam War in Light of Iraq. The panel of six scholars and authors contributed their personal insights into the two conflicts; similarities easier to expound than differences. Both qualify as huge political, military...

    We had a late start on St. Pat’s Day celebration.

    I saw The Beatles “Love” at the Mirage Sunday night and was wondering again where Cirque du Soleil finds their incredible dancers and acrobats, not to mention where they get their ideas. One answer is recruitment by email to participate in artistic auditions held in Paris, Orlando, San Francisco, Montreal, Vienna, Chicago, Oslo and Stockholm. I find it curious...

  • Eat Bulgarian at Magura’s
    The Balkans is an intriguing hodgepodge of cultures. Since the days of the Crusades, when multitudes of West Europeans stomped through their lands on the way to Constantinople and the Holy Land, this area has been involved in a tug of war between East and West. Part of the Ottoman Empire for centuries, they retained their odd Slavic kind of Europeanism but not without...
