I’m tired, and it’s really windy here in Northridge, so here are a few interesting articles from the NY Times. No clever departments this time:
- Do you want to know who makes the real steady money in theatre these days? The technical people. This article from the NY Times talks about how much the stagehands make at Carnegie Hall. Try an average salary of $290K.
- Sometimes, the story behind an actress is interesting. This is an article about Terri White, who was in the original cast of Barnum, almost won a Tony…. and eventually ended up sleeping on a bench in a park. She’s now back on the Broadway stage.
- Those of us in security worry about things like supply chain threats. This article in the NY Times has a nice discussion on the subject.
- Lastly, sometimes the result can be more annoying than the problem. In the deep south, religious sayings from the cheerleading squad were banned because of separation of church and state. So the parents and students moved them to the stands, where they are even more visible. Reading this, I feel sorry for any non-Christians attending those schools. Talk about an uncomfortable, outsider life.
