In Julia Cho’s new play Durango is getting its Midwestern premiere at the Cincinnati Playhouse. This fine play not only describes a road trip, but it will make everyone who sees it think about where they might be going. Tuesday-Sunday. Through Oct. 19.
What a difference to read a newspaper column about public schools that’s favor able to the staff, the core of the schools (“School Funding Fight in the Burbs,” issue of Sept. 10). Joe Wessels’ col umn was well written and informative. I’m the chairperson of the Fairfield Classroom Teachers Association negotiations team.
Thank you for Joe Wessels' column about Mount Washington ("Not Too Cool for the Pool," issue of June 4). When I worked so hard to get that new rec center, my dream was to have it provide what's needed to prevent the incidents that Wessels recounted.

I'm the kind of person who wants to know everything about everything. It's difficult for me to admit privately, much less publicly, when I can't get my arms around an important topic. But the current financial crisis is kicking my ass.
So even without adjusting for inflation, during the three minutes that your local FM voice-tracked DJ spins Soulja Boy's tall tales of "super soaking" young women, about $368,000 has been spent on a military action which most of the country believes needs to come to a swift and decisive conclusion.
Why`s kaleidoscopic musical output conjures a host of descriptors, the most accurate of which might be the Oakland-based band's own genre-spliced classification: "Pop-inflected Psychedelic Folk Hop." The brainchild of Cincinnati native/former cLOUDDEAD member Yoni Wolf, Why? started as a one-man bedroom project (2003's Oaklandazulasylum).
Danny Cross' article on cycling in Cincinnati ("No One Rides for Free," issue of Sept. 3) was passed to me today by a co-worker, and I read it with great interest. I took up cycling about eight years ago, and it's become a real passion.
