    Just to make absolutely sure you don't have to include it next week too, why don't you use this image? It should get the point across.

    I really don't understand what the problem is. We added it late into last week's update because we didn't want people who obviously already knew about this to start some drama in Communications about "Why aren't you guys talking about what happened to Joel? Are you trying to dismiss it?". We didn't want to make an entire thread on the issue for the very reason you guys are complaining now. We don't want to make a big deal out of it. We just added it to this week because that's technically when it happened.

    However, we should have realized this was a no win situation, and that some folks simply see drama in everything.

    "Are you trying to dismiss it?"
    Well, PB seems to be doing a good job dismissing all of you.

    "some folks simply see drama in everything"
    I see Drama in Vertical's eyes. I see drama in his hair. I see love in his heart.

    Nice update. I'm still very happy about the Amphitheatre, if only because you used the proper British spelling. ;)

    Hey, Gandolf, can you try to misquote the robbery scene from Henry IV, Part I sometime? That's one of my favorite scenes. ;)

    Having all of the informational threads become line-by-line threads is a great idea! In fact, it's one of the best ideas I've heard in a long time.

    This has already been explained by Vertical;

    "I really don't understand what the problem is. We added it late into last week's update because we didn't want people who obviously already knew about this to start some drama in Communications about "Why aren't you guys talking about what happened to Joel? Are you trying to dismiss it?". We didn't want to make an entire thread on the issue for the very reason you guys are complaining now. We don't want to make a big deal out of it. We just added it to this week because that's technically when it happened."


    You will see that some people in this thread were unaware of what had happened, which is exactly why the late inclusion to last week's Mod-Squad update was reposted this week. Move along...

    If you can say my quote isn't the most humorous, intellegent, and all-round amazing thing you've ever read, than you must be lying.

    Good update. I always suspected that Darth-Hannibal = Jedi-Corleone. I was fooled though, I suppose. Good work, 'Travis'.

    Liz - never read it. 8-} I managed to avoid that one by having a horrible English teacher. (Saw it once, thought it was overrated.) But Henry IV is one of my favorites.

    Sorry GriffZ......I could read your quote through the dark glasses I am wearing to deflect the glare of your very bright and very girly colors. :p

    I saw a live production. The acting was excellent - I just didn't like the story that much. I've read Caesar twice due to the fact that I moved in the middle of high school, and I've read Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, Richard III, The Tempest, and Henry IV Part I, and I've seen Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, and King Lear live (Shrew twice, one professional and one school - the school one was better). Plus I've seen the movie versions of Hamlet (Kenneth Branaugh), Much Ado, Richard III, and MND (which was horrible).

    How's that for ya, Liz? ;)

    Mel

    EDIT: I forgot, I also saw that Scottish play live as well. :)

    Dammit, if my Comm thread was locked for being chatty, then this one better be as well.

    NO FUN CAN BE HAD IN COMMUNICATIONS.
