Director Won’t Release ‘Love Song of Saul Alinsky’ Tape with Obama’s ‘Share’

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

According to breitbart.com, Pam Dickler, director of the 1998 production of “The Love Song of Saul Alinsky” in Chicago that included a panel discussion featuring then-State Sen. Barack Obama, has a video tape of the play, and she won’t release it.

“There is only one archive tape of the play and I have it,” Dickler said. “It is not in Chicago.”

Dickler said that she didn’t believe she had ever watched the tape, and she didn’t know if it “can be viewed.” But she added: “No one is going to see the tape.”

She said she felt “very protective over it … due to all of the interest from conservatives recently.” She also told our source that the poster for the play was never supposed to be distributed.

Dickler added that there were no transcripts of the panel discussion.

Florida School Prayer Bill to Become Law

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Florida House voted 88-27 Thursday to give final approval to a bill that allows school boards to set policies that would allow students to offer “inspirational messages” at school events, including mandatory gatherings such as student assemblies. The bill now goes to Gov. Rick Scott.

The bill has been pushed for several years by State Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, and Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights. Siplin’s measure passed the Senate a week ago.

Advocates of the new measure say that it’s not about prayer, but about “inspirational” messaging and free speech. They hope that messages by students — faculty and staff won’t be allowed to speak — would bring a tone of respect and civility to the classroom.
