Monday of a long weekend.
In order to keep this solemn day in our hearts, let us remember the tragedy of spending $300,000 on a workshop of a Broadway musical. A musical that was already relatively well-tested as feature film ("Cry-Baby").
Apparently, this beats spending $25,000.00 for a reading.
This kind of waste would make the Department of Defense salute.
