Re: “Luke Ravenstahl: First Amendment Advocate

I see from your article on Mayor Luke's f-bomb at the Oct. 1 performance of "Off the Record IX: High School Confidential," that "producer Chris Rawson did not respond to a request for comment." That would probably be because I never received that request. But what's to comment? "Off the Record" makes fun of the newsmakers and invites a few of them to make fun of us in return. We say what we want and so do they. As to the reporter's comment that "we weren't there," why weren't you? It's one of the best shows in town, every year! He goes on, "we're probably never going to be invited," but nobody needs to be invited: Tickets are sold every year through the Cultural Trust box office, with the proceeds going mainly to the Food Bank. There's nothing private about this great evening, which is presented by the union representing PG writers (not by the paper) and by the actors of AFTRA. So please do come next year -- the Food Bank can use the money, and everyone needs to discover that it's healthy (and fun) to laugh at ourselves, whatever the language that's used.
-- Chris Rawson, PG senior theater critic and producer, "Off the Record"
