KCP has done it again
Once again the Kauai Community Players have done our island proud!
Their rendering of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is a delight. Bravi, bravi, cast and crew.
Not to boast of it, but I have attended productions of this comic tour de force in both New York and London. KCP’s is as good. In fact, Billy Quebido has a better singing voice than the young man who played Hero in the Broadway cast.
Don’t take my word for it. Beg, cajole, borrow, use all legal and moral means to secure a ticket to this fine show.
A word of caution, however. Be prepared to laugh until your face aches, and hold on to your chair to keep falling on the floor!

Don’t blame the button pusher
I feel so sorry for the poor person who pushed the wrong button on Jan. 13. It was the system which was the problem, not the person.
Even my washing machine has a “CANCEL” button!
That person actually did us all (and probably many other states) a favor.
The warning didn’t go out to everyone – for example, on my “non-mobile” home phone, which is connected to the Civil Defense system, there was no initial warning.
However, the “all clear” from Civil Defense came through perfectly.
Realizing just how disconnected our different “alert” systems are will help us to improve in case of any real emergency.
An outdated system should not be blamed on the one person who made a mistake.
In this case, the mistake turns out to be a very good thing as the emergency alert system gets reviewed and improved.
