You won't believe this one

An 8-year-old elementary-school student from Southern California was sent home after reciting a Star Trek-inspired version of the Pledge of Allegiance in his classroom, according to a post on his mother's blog.


Any SF Thespians Out There?

Have you ever noticed that if you are studying a certain literary genre it seems to pop up everywhere you go? I received an email from the Saint John Theatre Company about upcoming auditions and here is one that I thought might be of interest to the class:

Monday, July 4 and Tuesday, July 5, 2005 at 7 pm SJTC Loft, 86 Prince William Street, 4th Floor
Audition materials will be provided. No previous stage experience necessary.

‘Theatre on the Edge’ will be staged at the Mary H. Oland Theatre, New Brunswick Museum from August 11 to August 13, 2005

"For Ever and Ever" by Gary J. Langguth (1 woman, 1 man)
A female scientist awakens to discover she is the last living human being left in the universe, and her only company is a robotic voice whose programming becomes suspect. This locally written play is a clever twist on some familiar sci-fi concepts.
So what do you think guys? Any budding Bill Shatners out there?

And now for something totally unrelated:
