Arthur Miller’s The Crucible opens  Friday, October 24, at 8 p.m.; this is also our pay-what-you-can night for this production.  Please spread the word about this classic and compelling drama of paranoia and superstition, perfect for the fall season.

  3. Palin is a role model to women.
  4. McCain rallies harbor few fringe peoples.

Here are McCain’s statements:

1. McCain’s solutions to education and why we had Desert Storm.

During the third debate, when asked about the state of education in the US, McCain had this, among other things, to say:

McCain: “We need to encourage programs such as Teach for America and Troops to Teachers where people, after having served in the military, can go right to teaching and not have to take these examinations or have the certification that  are are required in many states.”
