So, apparently it is all right to have the childrens theater do a bloody play "sweeney todd" and to have the same group perform the bloodiest version of "Dracula" I have ever seen, the speaking about sexuality is forbidden. This is one of the most confusing parts of this county.

With the teen pregnancy rate in Georgia on the rise, it seems obvious that NOT talking about it is NOT working.

Also, this show is a farce! It is based upon the premise that the desires of the few cannot be allowed to control the needs of the population.

1. This Carrollton: The Deep South. It's a rural town; not a big city. What does the theater production expect? I find most of the local productions to be pretentious, with classics such as Willy Wonka ruined for the actor's ego's shining.

2. On the other hand, I disliked Wayne Garner when I lived in Carrollton, and know about the dirt under his yellow nails. It just goes to show how blind voters are: They also elected a corrupt governor into office last year!

3. The COLLEGE, West Georgia, had the Vagina Monologues onstage not too long ago - I'm sure they could help by allowing the performance go on in their auditorium (It doesn't have to be immediate, though). I am assuming the actors that are involved are at least eighteen, and therefore probably go to West Georgia.
