    Thanks Stephen for always finding the BEST things for us to do!

  • Cap Deverson

    Nice going Ms. Packer for bringing David Mamet who is and always has been a right leaning, sexist, homophobic writer. His most recent extreme Libertarian statements in the wake of the murdered school children was to guess what? Promote guns, you know those instruments of death that have killed more American citizens since 1968 that in EVERY war the U.S. has fought from the Revolutionary war through Afghanistan. So thanks again Ms. Packer for bringing a misogynistic, homophobic, gun toting jerks work into our community.

      what else can one expect from the likes of this woman who wields her power over the River community by making threats of lawsuits when she doesn’t get her way. surprised Pegasus even let her in there to direct this play…she likely bullied her way in as she does w/everything else. I know a whole section of g’ville that won’t go near this production simply because she is so heavily involved in it. she really earned her honorary title as ‘wicked witch of west county’. too bad someone doesn’t drop a house on her and steal the ruby slippers…she certainly could use a lesson in humility!

      • Stephen Gross

        I don’t know if she’ll read this “wizardly” comment either.

      • Stephen Gross

        Sean: It sounds like you’re in agreement with Cap Deverson. Somehow I think, if you ever run into each other, you two would get along well.

        • sean black (guerneville)

          I know for sure we’re the only ones around here that would agree on Ms. Packer’s dubious character….it’s a very small town.

  • Stephen Gross

    Thanks for reading my posts and commenting. Hopefully Ms. Packer reads them too or she’ll not see your message to her.
