Laurie Anderson, Times Herald-Record
"Oh, to be a bug on the wall when multimedia performance artist Laurie Anderson informed the higher-ups at NASA that, as part of her artist-in-residence status at the agency, she was setting out to ... write a poem. "... The end result, "The End of the Moon," is part of a trilogy that began with a piece called "Happiness" (created in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks). Anderson performs her piece tonight at the Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie. Tickets: $42.50, $39.50 students/senior citizens, $36.50 members."
Editor's note: If she is getting taxpayer money to write this stuff shouldn't she perform it for free?
