Someone in Minneapolis wrote a radio musical about us.
Above: Minneapolis, where actors are playing my assistant Marisha right now.
Marisha just came across some press clippings that seem to indicate that someone in Minneapolis (of all places!) has written a musical radio show about the Christmas Island case.
You can read about it here.
They've taken some real liberties, it looks like, changing Christmas Island to "Moon Island" and giving former councilman Sherman Larson a bigger part than he actually played. It looks like they changed the ending, too -- as we all know, our Christmas Island broke up before the trial ended and are presently working in and around town to pay off their legal fees. I feel bad for the kids, but so it goes. They probably won't be able to afford to fly out to Minneapolis to see the show that's about them. What a shame.
Marisha says she may fly out to see the show herself in October. We'll update you.
I've heard Minneapolis is a nice place. It's about the same size, roughly, as here, so maybe the people writing it will have a sense of what it's like being here. Of course, Minneapolis doesn't have a Zeppelin District or Delawaretown, does it?
If you're visiting for the first time from Minneapolis, feel free to look at this introduction to what's been happening on this blog since 2006.
