Miscellaneous Senator News

I haven't had a lot of time to post on the blog this week. I've been working on other projects. I do want to do a quick update on the Senator Theatre.

Tom Harris over at the Friends of the Senator Theatre blog got responses to his follow-up questions from Mayor Dixon.

There was a very nice letter on the Senator in the Sun from Claudine Davison, Director of the Baltimore Jewish Film Festival. Quote:

Baltimore needs more brave warriors like Senator Theatre owner Tom Kiefaber ("Instead of Senator bailout, try free-market solution," Feb. 16). Who else would have had the stamina, courage and drive to fight such an uphill battle over so many years to save this historic theater?

The truth is that without Mr. Kiefaber, this gem would already be long gone. Mr. Kiefaber has also championed and assisted many community causes and events, including the Baltimore Jewish Film Festival.

We owe Mr. Kiefaber a huge debt of gratitude.

I noticed as I was looking for that link that the "bonus letters" page on the Sun site now has a letter I wrote them at least two weeks ago (and no, it's not the nasty letter that is also there), but I don't think those get published in the printed paper.

There's a video interview with Tom Kiefaber on WJZ's site.

Other than that, I don't know that there's been a lot of news on the Senator front this week.

Now playing at the Senator:
