No, really. I could not make this up if I tried. I am just saying that Reston Virginia, unless it is a much better place than I imagine, does not have many brilliant gay men who happen to be socialists. I mean really, in the vanilla suburbs of C.C. My friends, the end days have truly come.

By all the Gods things have become unstuck. The works and days are upon us children.

Question :)

Mr. Kushner:

I will be attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC in a few weeks. I am wondering if you have any comments on this school, or any words of advice that you can give to me before I start my training. I know I will work hard, and do the best job I can possibly do. Acting is my life, and I know I will only move forward with it. Thank you for your time.

Don't mess with Ellen Burstyn. She'll cut you man.

Re: Question :)

In all seriousness, Kushner is a tremendously gracious and kind man. He was funny, thoughtful, kind, and unlikely, or so I would imagine, to say anything negative about Ellen Burstyn. I am just saying she was scary in Requiem. Probably the creepiest ABC after school special ever.

I don't know what Kushner would say about acting. To be a minimally decent human being, however, one ought to choose hope and truth over despair and death. It is so rare to hear someone develop a humanist position with no apology or hip sarcasm. I hope he develops his position further.

Anyways, he has a fun thing coming out in The Advocate. Apparently, and folks don't be shocked, Kushner is not so much a fan of the current administration. Go figure.
