News & Comment

  • Letters to the Editor

    I want to commend your Sept. 20th issue. I found it interesting and most informative. Especially the feature article by Robert Herold ("We must not repeat Vietnam") was excellent (I'm a reader who still remembers the awful mistakes of Vietnam). And the le
  • Big screen backlog

    Monday morning, September 10, was just another day in Hollywood. The bean counters had just finished totaling up box office receipts revealing that the umpteenth remake of a certain Alexandre Dumas book, this time called simply The Musketeer,
  • Understanding Islam

    On Sept. 9, I was giving an introductory lecture to my Religion 203 weekend seminar at Iona College. I began as usual with some definitions of some commonly heard terms used in the study of religion. As an example on the term "fund
  • American graffiti

    Dan Clowes first saw it as graffiti more than a dozen years ago: "Ghost World." The Chicago-born comic book artist was jack-legging through an alley off a side street in a not-then gentrified neighborhood called Wicker Park, and the enigmatic
  • The sting of success

    Start with a couple of jokes. Think of them as guides to the sensibilities of the current production at the Civic's Studio Theatre. If you grin over these -- or laugh out loud -- you'll like the show. In the first, Alexa, the central femme
  • Portrait of the artist

    JAMES FRANCIS LAVIGNE's studio is a vast white space with hardwood floors and ample light for working. His large canvases line the walls like impromptu windows onto a more vivid, idealized world, and he moves among them with a surefooted
  • Home-grown terror

    When I first saw Steven Dietz's God's Country, I wondered why he had written it as a play for the stage. With several dozen characters, staccato scenes, quick cuts, long swatches of newspaper accounts and courtroom transcripts, the materi
  • Detective Work

    Was Jack the Ripper the "father of the 20th century?" Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's comprehensive feat of Ripperology in the form of a graphic novel, From Hell, makes rich source material for the fourth feature by the Hughes brothers (Menac
  • B is for Big Bird

    When the Sesame Street Live touring company comes to Spokane next week with its latest stage production, "Big Bird's Sunny Day Camp Out," the headliner of the show is definitely the eight-foot-plus yellow-feathered avian wonder. Big Bird
  • Citizen critique -Training Day

    Ethan Hawke wakes up and kisses his wife good morning as she's nursing their baby. It's a scene straight out of Norman Rockwell, but Hawke is no doe-eyed innocent, he's a realist; he knows that today, his first day as a narcotics officer f
  • Local briefs

    There's only one sure thing about the Spokane Convention Center expansion plan: It's running out of time. Who will build a new convention center, what it will look like, even where it will be located -- all of those questions are up in the air. Numerous de
  • Meeting of the minds

    There's only one sure thing about the Spokane Convention Center expansion plan: It's running out of time. Who will build a new convention center, what it will look like, even where it will be located -- all of those questions are up in th
  • In God's name

    In the days immediately following the events of September 11, the word "crusade" became a lightning rod for raw emotion. President George W. Bush uttered it in an unscripted moment, and you could almost hear the gasps emanating fro
  • N-sync with Mulligan

    The guys in MULLIGAN are by and large a jovial, self-deprecating lot. "There's not much to us really," admits singer/songwriter/pianist, Chris White. "We're just four guys in a band. It should make for a real scintillating article." Neve
  • CD review-Suzanne Vega

    In the symbology of color, red is passion, anger, love and lust. And gray? Gray is the hue of ennui, depression, tears and cemetery statuary. Metaphorical charcoal and crimson, scarlet and dove tumble one over the other in variegated curren
