Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

I suppose my Chicago 'roots' are showing with that comment. Some poetry readings are pretty harsh, the Slams are tough on people--I wanted to clarify that there would be no popcorn throwing, booing, etc!

Thanks for commenting:)

Oh- additionally, we have a last minute event that same night including a theatrical release of the trailer for a new trilogy based on the life and demise of Pearl Bryan. (Titled Hell's Gate)

Not related topics obviously, but worthy of note. Ron Whitt, the director of the films, will be there. The trailer and meet and greet will go from 2-3 pm...Come join us, smaller gov now:)
