Just like a tween sitting by the phone — pining away the time because that “special” someone is gonna call — we’ve been hoping to hear from you. Hey, it’s cool; we know you’re busy and surely don’t need another guilt trip about not keeping in touch. We mean, we only gave birth to you and you can’t even pick up the phone — wait a minute; our bad, that’s the wrong speech. Perhaps you’ll feel compelled to reach out now. Hope May is a good one for you.

The cancellation of shows and boycotts of artists against Israel has been a disturbing trend for the past two years and shows no sign of subsiding. Perhaps this topic would make a good article for an upcoming edition of Red Thread. Hey hey, my my …
