Peter Marks has a story in Today’s WaPo about Joy Zinoman retiring from Studio Theater. As you read this you almost certainly are having one of two responses:

  • Holy cow, really?
  • Who?

There’s really no other ground. As Marks points out in his column, running a theater company is an entrenchment that people seem to more typically leave feet-first. If you’re familiar with Joy in particular it’s even more mind-boggling; you’d just as well expect B.B.King to give up his iconic guitar, Lucille.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
