Prohibition
Unlike Bill Clinton, President Obama admits he inhaled! “Frequently,” he said. “That was the point.” People laugh when politicians talk about their drug use.

Best of: The music endorsements
Singer Crystal Bright, Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands The closest approximation to Crystal Bright’s haunted incantations is that of another North Carolina native: Tori Amos. As audacious of a comparison as that might seem, it’s not only her vocal ability that approaches that of Amos, but the raw emotion with which she delivers it.

Not feeling the Lemonheads
It’s not fair, really, that a guy bedding supermodels in his youth was able to lose himself in a decade-long fog to some rather nasty drugs and come out on the other side able to pick up where he left off. Dando exudes the same charmed, slightly arrogant ambivalence of his days as the Poet King of Generation X.

The teaming of writer Dennis Potter and director Nicolas Roeg promised something far beyond the mainstream, and this lively and loony grab-bag of psychological thriller, surreal satire and black comedy certainly delivered. That it baffled audiences and many critics back in 1988 is no surprise.

The weather’s nice, mostly, with occasional freak cold spells and tornados, making it prime season to hit the galleries in Winston-Salem and Greensboro. The sweet thing about this prospect is that most events are free, so economic impoverishment doesn’t have to prevent you from experiencing joy and cultural enrichment.

Crucible composer remembers ‘witch hunts’
In 1952, Miller wrote the play, which dramatized the 17th Century Salem witch trials, in response to McCarthyism, when the US government went on its own witch hunt — for communists. A raving success, the play was later adapted into an opera by composer Robert Ward in 1961.

Cafe without the accent in Ardmore
But in the Ardmore neighborhood of Winston-Salem, the term “café” harkens back to the word’s etymological roots — at least when it’s applied to Cafe Arthur’s, a simple coffee shop in the traditional sense that looks like it’s sat on South Hawthorne Road roughly forever.
