Having escaped prosecution for several years now, the ever-changing cast of conspirators continues to scout locations and order spectators to wear warm clothes and flat shoes. Ringleader Hernan Cortez corrals musicians, poets, fire-eaters, and, distressingly, actors. The next episode of this travesty openly admits, on its Web site, to "Starring Ken Taylor and Andrew Bancroft from The Ken and Andy Show," for example. Past performances have featured snake-oil salesmen, a White Trash Opera, and Pervo the Clown. Befouling Green Tortoise and other tolerant buses wherever it goes, insulting boring lifestyles everywhere, this tawdry troupe is a huge inconvenience to those of us who much prefer to fall asleep on the couch.
