    We are horrified by terrorism committed in the name of Islam. We read of cultists who twist the Christian faith. Yet all the acts of horror committed in the name of traditional religion are dwarfed by the horrors perpetrated by unhinged followers of Darwin.

    Shenanigans…that’s what I am after…on a wild shot, would you be interested in performing this in a different venue, ie the old Harbor Park restaurant, now the Mattabesett Canoe Club.. I am trying to create an artistic environment where various creative forms can perform/exist. I am new to the restaurant and the business overall but eager to find local artists and performers…would welcome hearing from anyone on this idea…thanks Danny
