THERE'S LOTS OF GOOD STUFF over at Gregg Easterbrook's Easterblogg -- and his discussion of Mel Gibson's Christ movie, and in particular his mention of Simon of Cyrene, reminds me of my high-school summer spent acting in the Smoky Mountain Passion Play, in which I sometimes played Simon (in blackface; I was the understudy). I was also understudy for the Thief On The Left, and I can report firsthand that crucifixion has nothing to recommend it, even when it's not for real.
