(1) Jim C. in NJ: What’s your 60s song?

Response:  Interesting. Result I got was “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys. But I question the validity of this … it did not show “Happy Together” for me.

(2) Bill K. in CA: Thumbs up, Blaine. Thanks! Aquarius sounds like it’ll be worth watching.

(3) Travel Industry Responds to Rise in Solo Sojourners

(4) Catherine O. in ME: Thanks for another great issue. My first car was a Ford Falcon. The piece on Letterman was very revealing and down to home, just like Dave.And I wish more people understood and acted on the quote you like.

(5) Ingrid S. in PA: Thank you Blaine for your feature in the newsletter and also for your hospitality during our visit. We loved Asheville and look forward in the future (hopefully near) to be able to visit for a nice day out.

We have loved the Carolinas for 25 years and are ready to live a bit more less hectic life and much more beautiful landscape to enjoy.
Have an enjoyable rest of the weekend.
PS. Kudos for saving that turtle.

(2) A Different Strokes PAC presents Coyote On A Fence, by Bruce Graham.

Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective
Asheville, NC

Based on a true story. The play stars John Brennan, a death row convict who kicked in the face of a drug dealer named Dwayne Rigby prior to the start of the play. John, is educated and arrogant; a serious writer who now writes for the “Death Row Advocate,” and may only be guilty of doing society a favor. On death row, John meets Robert Alvin “Bobby” Reyburn. lliterate but likable, Bobby is a funny young guy who loves to do impressions. He’s also a member of the Aryan nation, convicted of a horrific crime. As each awaits his fate on death row, one evokes sympathy, the other derision. In vivid scenes,Coyote on a Fence explores the disturbing question: Can one be innocent though proven guilty? This penetrating new drama offers no clear verdict, just utterly compelling theatre.
