A few rough ones during the day, but eventually all was smoothed out. Off to a play in the evening, with friends we knew would appreciate the themes and issues in this new work, "Ruined", by Lynn Nottage. We saw it down in Ashland, and it happened to be on the schedule for a theater we patronize up here. I was a bit concerned it wouldn't be as good the second time around, but it was, with a different cast and a little different style. Still a moving story, and charged by its contemporary setting, war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo; even so, the basic horror of handing machine guns to teenaged boys is unfortunately wide spread in this world.
