I most certainly read Lord of the Flies at Havre High School, very likely mediated by Mr. Axel Schmaing, though in just what course escapes me at the moment.
I also had the great pleasure of seeing the truly harrowing 1963 Brit . . . → Read More: LORD OF THE FLIES at Havre High! With All-Male AND all-Female Casts!, By Tom Kipp and Jay Schuschke
I had a fine time watching last weekend’s Montana-related playoff games, though the Sam Houston State/MSU blowout was rather painful at times, due to the Bobcats tossing away several good opportunities to at least keep the game close. Perhaps the Griz will fare quite a bit better tonight….

Since I read the reconstituted, on-line-only version of the venerable CRAWDADDY! [thoughtfully bundled in with my weekly Wolfgang's Vault concert archive e-mails] with some regularity, I can vouch for its residual interest, though I seldom look at more than one or two articles per virtual “issue”.
