To tell the truth, I had little desire to watch “Leaving Neverland,” director Dan Reed’s devastating documentary about two men who claim that late pop icon Michael Jackson sexually abused them for years when they were children. Not only did a four-hour, two-night film containing graphic descriptions of sexual activities between an adult male and young boys seem downright unappealing, I suspected that a repugnant case of exploitation might be at work.

While there are parts of “Forum” that may be unfamiliar to many theatergoers, some jokes never get old, even when they’re, well, old, The aptly named Miles Gloriosus (Scotty Shoemaker, who is at his funniest when he’s feigning an outsized ego) commands Pseudolus ballet slippers to “Bring me my bride.” Pseudolus begs, “Let me say one word first.” Gloriosus answers, “One word …,what is it?” Pseudolus looks impishly at the audience and says “Intermission.”..

Little Italy in New York City, Chinatown in San Francisco and Oakland, Koreatown in Los Angeles — and Little Saigon in San Jose. The Vietnamese began arriving in Santa Clara County in the late 1970s, drawn by the assembly and technician jobs at the dawn of Silicon Valley. San Jose’s original Little Saigon began on gritty Santa Clara Street downtown, when refugees moved into storefronts that had been shuttered by the rise of the suburban malls.

Slowly a community formed. Some eventually moved to Lion Plaza on the East Side as the Redevelopment Agency bought out properties downtown.
When she returned to San Luis Obispo, Inglish continued to work in her field, “and the only reason I didn’t start music full time was because I loved my job,” she says, “Being on stage is not dissimilar from giving a workshop on energy efficiency, You can share a story and an idea, I write the occasional secular gospel song about biodiesel fuel.”, About four years ago, she decided to leave her job and focus on music, Before long, she realized that she was part of a larger movement, “not just ballet slippers of women playing banjo professionally, but women banjo players leading bands.”..
A survivor of the California bar shooting says the gunman was wearing a black hoodie and holding a handgun as he opened fire. Cole Knapp is a freshman at Moorpark College and was inside the Borderline Bar & Grill when the shooting began. He says he tried to get as many people to cover as he could.
