Chief Hogan builds community bridges with Segway minstrel outreach
Local arts critics decry it as ‘epic failure’
POLICE CHIEFS IN BLACKFACE FROM THE FUTURE
DIRECTOR: ANTHONY FRANKLIN (REPORT)
PLAYERS: BILL HOGAN
SCIENCE FICTION/ DRAMA • UNRATED
The Story: When told he must build bridges with the black community, a white police chief dons blackface and a Segway and then, with the help of several thrown pies and a back-hoe, attempts to build a suspension bridge across the French Broad River.
The Lowdown: Visually stunning, but the concept ultimately fails in its execution. It seems as if the producers had a concept — a police chief wearing blackface and riding a Segway — and then just did not know how to expand upon the premise.
Playing at Fine Arts Theatre, City/County Plaza, Pritchard Park, Cinebarre.

I’ve heard there are certain sexual positions that are not good for conceiving.
What are some of the positions to avoid when trying to conceive?
Anything with the lights on or that involves eye contact should be avoided.
“Old Maude’s Revenge” probably won’t work too well. I wouldn’t do the “Piledriver.”
But I’d say the big one to avoid is “The Shocker.” My wife did that to me and I think a part of my soul died.
