History not always the guide
October 11, 2001

THE MAG: SEVEN QUESTIONS with Suzanne Vega
October 11, 2001
By Geoff Harkness “Solitude Standing” established Suzanne Vega as one of the more ethereal singer-songwriters of the modern era. While her 1987 sophomore album leaned toward soft-spoken ethnographies like “Luka,” Vega also beatniked her way through postmodern witticisms like “Tom’s Diner” (later remixed into a hit by DNA). “Luka,” which breached the Top 40, had the distinction of being one of the first popular songs about child abuse, influencing peers (see 10,000 Maniacs’ “What’s the Matter Here?”) to reach beyond the typical paradigms of pop music blandness.

The book cover described the stories as “all true,” but Hunter now says the sex part was just a middle-aged man’s fantasy to make a satirical point about the “collapse of Eastern culture and the decadence of Western culture.”

The promised land
October 11, 2001
Some 17,000 males fill Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo., screaming, praying, cheering and singing. Despite first guesses, this isn’t the regional rally for the Log Cabin Republicans. This raging crowd of testosterone is here for the Promise Keepers conference. Yes, it’s PK — that men-only, Christian organization whose stated goal (according to Fred Ramirez, director of U.S. Ministries for PK and organizer of today’s event) is “to have men lead better family lives, to be better fathers, better husbands, men of the church, men who live their lives according to God’s law.” PK appears to be a wholesome group — it wants men to take part in the family and be good husbands and fathers, preaches racial unity and claims to have no political agenda. However, this assertion seems a bit suspicious as I walk around the stadium and see booths promoting creationism, Christian groups whose mission is to convert Jews to Christ and a mutual fund company that screens out businesses that support abortion, same-sex marriages and affirmative action. The decor reminds me more of a reactionary assembly of fundamentalists than an innocent gathering of concerned dads.
The Mag: Movie Spread
October 11, 2001
The Closet French writer-director Francis Veber (the hilarious “The Dinner Game”) takes a premise that sounds more suited for a sitcom. Miraculously, he manages to make a smart, engaging comedy about Francois Pignon (Daniel Auteuil, “The Widow of St. Pierre”) a dull accountant who pretends to be gay to keep his endangered job at a condom factory. As a result, for both good and ill, the previously ignored fellow becomes the most talked about employee in the office. Veber succeeds with this setup because he doesn’t perpetuate stereotypes, but bases his gags on how people perceive Francois. He also has some help from a top-notch French cast, which includes Gérard Depardieu, Jean Rochefort and Michèle Laroque (“Ma vie en Rose”). Veber’s movies have frequently been remade into mediocre American flicks like “Pure Luck” and “The Man With One Red Shoe.” It’s best to put up with the subtitles and see his work done properly.

It’s painless and won’t do any harm, but you still want it to stop.

Police: Strip club investigated for multiple violations A semi-nude dancer at a bar Tuesday night was too semi-nude, as far as Lawrence Police were concerned. “Officers found a dancer on stage not wearing her pasties,” Sgt. Mike Pattrick, police spokesman, said. Officers were called to Bada Bing, 913 N. Second St., shortly before midnight to investigate a sexual assault report. While investigating that incident, officers saw a male patron on the performance stage with a female dancer. That is prohibited in a sexually oriented business, according to city ordinances. They also saw a dancer who was not wearing pasties, Pattrick said. No one was arrested, but a report will be sent to the Lawrence Municipal Court prosecutor’s office. As for the sexual assault, an 18-year-old woman told officers she was inappropriately touched by a 55-year-old man. Police are investigating. __________________________ Government: SRS chief will discuss service cuts for poor Topeka Kansas’ chief of social services will have a public meeting today to discuss proposed cuts to services for the poor, sick and disabled.

Issues included the potential effect on two historic buildings, neighborhood parking and the implied boundaries on campus expansion set by KU in the past.

One of these days public sentiment will rise up and swat football with such emphasis and vehemence that the game will be knocked off the earth.”
