INTERVIEW | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO | PAGE 8 | ILLUSTRATION BY AUBREY BERARDINI
Women of a lesser God The Rev. Roy Bourgeois probably isn’t the Vatican’s favorite priest. A longtime member of the Maryknolls, an order known for its missionary work in some of the most troubled parts of the world, Bourgeois is on the brink of excommunication from the Catholic Church. His defiant refusal to recant his support for the ordination of women conflicts with the Vatican’s “men only” tradition. The Vatican’s position is discrimination, Bourgeois said, and like racial segregation, is ultimately doomed.
“Who are we as men to say that our call from God is authentic, but your call as women is not?” he said. Bourgeois will be in Rochester on Tuesday, November 27, for a showing of the documentary film by Jules Hart, “Pink Smoke Over the Vatican.” The controversial award-winning film explores the Roman Catholic Womenpriest movement. In a recent telephone interview, Bourgeois discussed his uncertain future with the Vatican, his support for the ordination of women, and how his tour in the Vietnam War drew him closer to God.

Lessons from Nuns on the Bus
I recently had the opportunity to spend the day with the Nuns on the Bus caravan as we toured inner-city agencies working with Rochester’s poor, homeless, and hungry. This was part of a nationwide effort by many orders of nuns to shine a bright light on issues of poverty in this country, on the policies that promulgate poverty, and the need for our communities to become involved in the resolution of suffering of those less fortunate. As I traveled with the Sisters of St. Joseph, Sisters of Mercy, and the School Sisters of Notre Dame, we heard the stories of homeless children, children murdered on the streets of Rochester, and children without enough food to eat. We met adults who depend on food pantries, food kitchens, and shelters. And we met many volunteers who dedicate their lives to making life bearable for the 57 percent of Rochester’s children living in poverty and the 25 percent of Rochester’s adults dependent on these services. I was strangely uplifted and encouraged by the positive attitude of all these nuns who have dedicated their lives to the impoverished. It is a strange juxtaposition from the image of nuns swatting our knuckles with rulers to see these women holding the hands of those in need. It was pointed out that today’s political climate is a dangerous environment for our population living in poverty, with no one speaking for them in the halls of Congress. No candidates speak to the need to return to the War on Poverty to save lives. Instead, we speak of war in the Middle East. Our Republican colleagues openly speak of cutting programs that aid the poor, that educate this population and give them access to health care. They speak as if the entire population of the unfortunate would rather take handouts than take care of themselves and their families. They speak as if we have no responsibility for our neighbors. The Democrats talk and have not done enough. They speak of City

programs to improve nutrition, education, and social structure, but little has changed. The Nuns on the Bus have taught me that poverty is a crime. The criminals are our politicians, and we aide and abet this criminal activity. It is our responsibility as citizens to support the needs of everyone in this country and not let a single child go to waste. These are our children. And now I consider these Nuns my Sisters. Every four years I hear the cry for reform in our government, but I hear the cry of the homeless and the defenseless every day. Elections come and go; we get excited and then we get tired. It is time to hold our elected officials to their promise to make life better for everyone of us. Too many of our children don’t have time for us to wait. JOHN L. GHERTNER, SODUS
Lies and politics
Mary Anna Towler laments the “ugliest campaign” she can remember, claiming that Mitt Romney lied (“The Next Four Years,” Urban Journal). I don’t remember any lies he told, but for the sake of argument, let’s assume he did. Conveniently left out of Towler’s piece was Senator Harry Reid – I’m sure under orders from Obama – calling Romney a tax cheat. Maybe in Ms. Towler’s archives is the political promo where a laid-off worker claimed that his wife died because of Romney’s business policies. And of course there’s Obama’s campaign head charging that “Romney is a felon.” Now that is ugly. Towler quotes Eugene Robinson saying Republicans talked about “taking the country back.” That has nothing to do with race, color, or origin. It has to do with ideology. Conservatives want to take the country back from the liberals. Starting in 2001, Democrats said the same thing regarding President George Bush; they wanted to take the country back from Republicans. We can now look forward to four more years of being Obama-sized. SAM PALERMO, ROCHESTER
The overriding problem
Regarding your “Next Four Years” column, you note the disunity of the electorate and the population and hope that the president can be a unifier.
I don’t think it’s impertinent to mention that Orwell’s “1984” proposes that the national unity you seem to want requires an outside enemy. If I’m not mistaken, a number of our leading politicians are engaged in a search for that entity. Should we encourage them? I think not. STEPHEN LEWANDOWSKI, CANANDAIGUA
There is not one thing in this article about restricting union rights to buy elections (“America for Sale,” News). Not only do they contribute cash but they also provide “volunteers,” often workers who are being paid by the unions. If a corporation isn’t a person, neither is a union. The mainstream media doesn’t have to buy ads. They just slant their stories to promote the candidates they favor. JHONALY50

On Mayor Tom Richards’ request for funding for a school-district truancy program: This is already someone’s job at the RCSD. That person needs to step down and let the district use their salary to pay for this.

Natural gas has decreased CO2 emissions in the USA by displacing coal use, also mercury, particulates, and solid waste (“Is a Natural GasFueled Industrial Boom Good for the Planet?” News Blog). Natural gas is the future of energy. It is replacing dirty old coal plants and dangerous, expensive nuclear plants. It will fuel cars, vans, buses, locomotives, aircraft, ships, tractors, air conditioners, engines of all kinds. It costs far less. It will help keep us out of more useless wars, where we shed our blood and money. It lowers CO2 emissions. Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com

Judging Petraeus If we had expected some kind of news lull after the election, we sure didn’t get it. The fall of David Petraeus pretty much dominated the news last week – and how could it not? The story’s subjects included a popular, highprofile general turned CIA director and two young, self-promoting and apparently loopy women. And the rest of us, I suspect, were ready for some entertainment. But there’s a serious issue underneath all that theater: Did Petraeus need to resign? My initial thought was, yes. His marriage and his affairs are nobody’s business but his own, but it becomes our business if his behavior puts the nation’s security at risk. And at first, it seemed that it might – particularly given what we’ve learned about his women friends. Petraeus seemed to be a prime blackmail target. But then I came across the following in a Washington Post opinion piece by John Prados, a senior research fellow at the National Security Archive: “The ostensible concern about the Petraeus affair was the potential for blackmail. Yet it is far-fetched today to think that a foreign government would contrive an operation to ensnare a CIA employee through an affair, a foreign-spy spouse or an allegation of homosexuality. Our enemies are unlikely to bother with such complicated schemes. Instead, they buy information — the method that has remained tried and true — or attempt to hack it from the datarich computer networks that the government is spending billions to defend.” Maybe we need an unemotional discussion about this. Based on what, besides their official accomplishments, should we assess public officials? Does their private behavior tell us anything significant? When Gary Hart was hoping to get the Democratic presidential nomination in 1987, I decided that if stories about his philandering were true, that disqualified him – particularly when he dared the media to catch him. It just seemed an indication of appallingly bad judgment. But Bill Clinton’s affair with an intern was hardly an example of emotional maturity and sound judgment. Neither were John Kennedy’s multiple extra-marital interests. Affairs – some flagrant, some milder – haven’t been rare among presidents. Dwight Eisenhower, Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson…. But many of us figure that their accomplishments outweigh their personal weaknesses. (And since none of us were on the inside of those marriages, the “weakness” charge is risky.) Johnson’s a particularly intriguing example, since unfaithfulness pales in
Based on what, besides their official accomplishments, should we assess public officials? Does their private behavior tell us anything significant?” importance to things like his vote stealing and the Vietnam War. And yet with that deeply complicated man, we also got the Voting Rights Act, two Civil Rights Acts, Medicare, and Medicaid. And he pulled together a traumatized country following John Kennedy’s assassination. Some media commentators have suggested that by having an affair with his biographer, David Petraeus betrayed the trust of the American people. I don’t know. Seems to me we’re sometimes pretty selective about what we consider “betrayal.” And if these commentators are expecting perfection in our leaders, I have some disappointing news for them. BTW: if we want to focus on something
genuinely important, how about the role and the activities of the agency Petraeus recently led? Intelligence gathering is crucial to national security, but the CIA has a particularly sordid history of stepping way outside of that role – fostering coups of duly elected governments of other nations, for instance. And a recent article in The Nation warns of the increasing militarization of the CIA. The agency “has strayed from intelligence to paramilitary-type activities,” Jeremy Scahill writes. Scahill offers this quote from Philip Giraldi, a retired career CIA case officer: “A considerable part of the CIA budget is now no longer spying; it’s supporting paramilitaries who work closely with JSOC [the US military’s Joint Special Operations Command] to kill terrorists, and to run the drone program.” The CIA “is a killing machine now,” Giraldi told Scahill. The role of the CIA and what this country is willing to do as part of – or under the guise of – fighting terrorism: Now there’s something worth talking about. And worth dominating the national news. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Sibley deal done
The sale of the Sibley building downtown to Boston-based WinnDevelopment is final. Sale price was $5 million. The historic building will be converted to mixed use with retail, office space, and housing. MCC will stay in the building for the next five years, but may move after that. The previous owners of the Sibley building were deeply in debt to the city, and Mayor Tom Richards has said the city will probably never be paid.
Brooks proposes budget
Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks proposed a $1.2 billion budget for 2013. The property tax rate would remain $8.99 per $1,000 of assessed value. The budget increases the cost of zoo admissions by about $1, and also raises the amount taxpayers are charged to fund Monroe Community College. The Legislature will vote on the budget next month.
Andrews to lead Dems
Democrats in the Monroe County Legislature elected Carrie Andrews to serve as minority leader, the top post in their caucus. The position
was previously held by Ted O’Brien, who was recently elected to the State Senate. Legislators Willie Joe Lightfoot and Cindy Kaleh are assistant Democratic leaders.
Area job growth slows
The Rochester region is adding private sector jobs, but job growth is slowing. According to the State Labor Department, Rochester added 3,200 jobs last month, led by health care and technology positions. But declines in manufacturing and construction jobs have offset gains in other industries. After leading the Upstate metros in job growth most of this year, Rochester was surpassed by Albany in October.
Extension for Kodak reorg
A US bankruptcy court granted Kodak six additional weeks, to February 28, 2013, to develop its reorganization plan for emerging from bankruptcy. Some of Kodak’s unsecured creditors opposed the idea, saying they do not believe the company will become solvent.

SWAN plans growth At a time when many neighborhood organizations are tightening their belts, Robert Walker-Smith, new executive director of the Southwest Area Neighborhood Association, says his goal is to nearly triple the group’s annual budget from $1.2 million to about $3.5 million over the next 18 months. Where will the extra money come from? SWAN will likely pursue federal grants for the first time, Walker-Smith says, and the group has been “pretty successful” drumming up private donations. Walker-Smith, who grew up in southwest Rochester, spent 10 years at Xerox and has also worked

at the YMCA and Rochester Institute of Technology. The bigger budget would allow SWAN to expand its programming, he says. The group serves 171 children through its after-school programs and other offerings, and Walker-Smith says he wants to grow that number to between 350 and 400. SWAN would also have more programs for seniors, he says, like bringing in life coaches to help seniors with health challenges, money management, and other issues. “There’s so much opportunity in the southwest,” he says. Walker-Smith says SWAN would also use the extra money

to provide more food vouchers. Shortage of food is one of the biggest issues facing people in the southwest, he says. “The impact of hunger and poverty is real,” Walker-Smith says. “You’d be amazed at what a hot meal does for a child.” SWAN kicks-off its expansion with the opening of a computer and training center on Monday, December 3, in SWAN’s offices off Genesee Street. The center will help adults build resumes and do job searches and provide homework and tutoring assistance for youth. It will also be open to the public on select hours for general use.

Arnie Rothschild, chair of Rochester Broadway Theatre League’s board, says that Scott Congel has agreed to build a 3,000-seat theater, which would be leased and programmed by RBTL, in Medley Centre. RBTL wouldn’t have to raise any money — the sticking point that has prevented RBTL from getting a new theater up to this point.

Medley, RBTL reach deal on new theater It’s a busy week in Medley Centre news. First, the East Irondequoit school board approved a measure requiring Medley Centre developer Scott Congel to pay several hundred thousand dollars for missing an investment milestone. And now, Arnie Rothschild, chair of Rochester Broadway Theatre League’s board, says that Congel has agreed to build a 3,000seat theater, which would be leased and programmed by RBTL, in Medley Centre. RBTL wouldn’t have to raise any money — the sticking point that has prevented RBTL from getting a new theater up to this point. Congel would also pay off RBTL’s debt on the Auditorium Theatre, which would be renovated into a smaller theater, Rothschild says. RBTL would still own and program the Aud, he says. Many in the public remain skeptical of the Medley Centre project. Physically, the site shows no signs of progress. The mall proper is vacant except for two remaining department stores. And the East Irondequoit school district is enforcing a provision of the developer’s payment in lieu of taxes agreement that requires Congel to make a payment if he fails to meet a development milestone.
Apartments OK’d A proposed apartment complex in the Village of Pittsford is a step closer to construction. | On Monday, the Village Board voted 3 to 2 to approve the site plan and required permits for an upscale apartment complex at 75 Monroe Avenue, the former Monoco Oil site. | Mayor Bob Corby and Trustee Paula Sherwood voted in opposition, while Trustees Tim Galli, Trip Pierson, and Lorie Boehlert voted in favor. Corby and Sherwood say the project doesn’t fit the scale or character of the village. | The vote was the end of years of negotiations between the board and the developer, a Mark IV subsidiary. | Many residents have pushed back against the project, saying it’s too big and incompatible with the character of the village. Monday night, residents filled the 160-person room to capacity at Pittsford Sutherland High School where the meeting was held. | The proposal still needs approval from two village boards, the Planning Board and the Architectural Preservation and Review Board. The Planning Board will look at the project’s layout and site design, Corby says. The APRB will review the architectural style, he says.
Congel was supposed to have invested $90 million in the project, which includes apartments, retail, and at least one hotel, by April 30. But district Medley Centre. FILE Photo officials say he missed the mark by about $25 million. Now they want him to pay an $827, 722 fee, of which approximately $550,000 would go to the district. The money is due in January, when Congel makes his annual PILOT payment. But the issue may not be over. COMIDA says Congel has invested enough in the project. The difference of opinion is significant because Congel could sue the district to prevent assessment of the extra payment. Despite the issue with the school district, Rothschild says he’s confident Congel will move forward with the Medley Centre project, including the theater.

Reckoning day nears for MCC campus The future of Monroe Community College’s downtown campus might become clearer next month, or not. A year ago, the college’s Board of Trustees voted to move MCC out of the Sibley building in downtown Rochester. Board members recommended purchasing and renovating buildings in Kodak’s State Street complex, transforming that property into the new Damon City Campus. But funding for the $72 million project depends on the County Legislature, which must approve borrowing the money. Republicans and Democrats expect that the first bond resolution will come up for a vote in December. But here’s the catch: the legislation may not get the votes it needs to pass. Legislature Democrats say they have questions and concerns about the proposal, and they have the ability to block the bond. MCC officials say the renovated Kodak site would be a better environment for students and faculty. They say that it’d be safer, that the college would be able to build better classrooms and public spaces, that the school would have vastly more space to work with, and that the site would have dedicated parking. They also say that buying and renovating the Kodak space is $10 million cheaper than buying and renovating the school’s space in the Sibley building. But Mayor Tom Richards, who does not have a direct say in the campus’s location, wants MCC to stay in the Sibley building. He says the campus and its students would benefit, and benefit from revitalization efforts at Midtown. Richards has been the most vocal critic of the Kodak move, raising questions about everything from the school’s space needs to potential complications from Kodak’s bankruptcy. And he’s said it’s easier for students to get to the Sibley building than to the State Street complex. Legislature Democrats share many of Richards’ questions and concerns. “We’re trying to do our due diligence and get the answers that we need,” says Carrie Andrews, a Democratic legislator and the caucus’s leader. (Monroe Community College President Anne Kress was scheduled to brief Democrats about the proposal early this week.) Republican Majority Leader Anthony Daniele says his caucus hasn’t done an internal vote, but its members do appear to support MCC’s plan to move. That’s not to say that Republicans lack concerns, but they have been less vocal than Democrats. MCC spokesperson Cynthia Cooper says that college officials have been contacted by legislators on both sides of the aisle. Republicans have focused less on issues around Midtown revitalization and more on financial concerns. Daniele says the Legislature’s role is primarily fiscal and not to decide where the MCC campus should go. City
November 21-27, 2012
The underlying funding issue is technical,
but crucial. To buy and renovate the Kodak property, the college needs to borrow money. But the county funds the college, so the borrowing has to be done through county government, which issues the bond. But a bond measure requires approval from two thirds of the Legislature, which means 20 out of 29 legislators have to vote in favor. The Legislature has 18 Republicans and 11 Democrats, so at least two Democratic votes are needed to pass the bond. And that’s if all Republicans vote in favor. Democrats have a list of concerns regarding the project, a primary one being Kodak’s bankruptcy and its effect on the MCC deal. But MCC officials downplay that concern. “The county and the college have engaged bankruptcy lawyers to give us an informed opinion on that,” says MCC’s Cooper. “The guidance we’re getting is that this should not be an issue for us in terms of the sale of the property.” But Democrat Legislator Ted O’Brien says his worries about the bankruptcy go beyond the sale of the site. For example, the deal would give MCC shared use of a Kodakowned parking lot. But what happens to that agreement, O’Brien asks, if Kodak doesn’t exit bankruptcy as expected? (Last week, a judge gave the company until February to file a plan to emerge from bankruptcy.) Utilities are another issue. The properties MCC would buy from Kodak include utility infrastructure for the whole complex. Democrats are concerned that MCC could get stuck maintaining the infrastructure or essentially acting as a utility company. College officials say the utilities are part of ongoing negotiations with Kodak. Dems also question why college officials want to purchase significantly more space than is occupied by the current campus. But Cooper says the college wants to grow some of its programs.

Some Democratic legislators also say that the Sibley building is a more convenient location for students who rely on buses; a new downtown bus station is being built next to the Sibley building. But many students would have to transfer buses in order to reach the Kodak site, says Legislator Cynthia Kaleh. Republicans want more accurate cost comparisons and data, Daniele says. They want to know the cost of fixing up and remaining in the Sibley building versus buying and renovating the Kodak site, he says. They also want to know how much the move would cost, and they want five to 10 years of operating cost projections for the sites, Daniele says. The Legislature typically approves borrowing
for its capital improvement plan the same night it approves the budget every year. This year’s budget vote is on Tuesday, December 11. If the usual approach is used, borrowing for the MCC downtown campus proposal will be lumped in with other CIP borrowing for things like road and water infrastructure maintenance. But that leaves a glaring, unanswered question pertaining to the downtown MCC campus proposal: What happens if the bond doesn’t pass? It could delay or halt construction projects planned for 2013. But it would probably also have implications for the campus location. O’Brien says Democrats
need to evaluate whether voting down the bond creates a risk that the downtown campus would be eliminated entirely. Cooper wouldn’t say what college officials would do if the bond vote fails, just that there’s no set process dictating a next step. She says college officials are focused on getting the legislators to see their vision for the Kodak site and trying to get the votes needed to pass the bond. Democrats say they want the MCC proposal to get its own vote, so if enough legislators aren’t on board, they won’t hold up other routine yet important projects. They’ve asked the Republican leadership to break the proposals apart. O’Brien says Republicans haven’t shot the idea down, but they also haven’t agreed to it. Daniele says one possibility could be amending the bond resolution’s language so that it’s not site specific. That would require legislators to pass an amendment. Mayor Richards says including the MCC project with the bonding resolution for the county’s other capital projects creates an artificial problem. There’s nothing stopping the county from making the MCC bonding its own vote, he says. “This whole process is unnecessarily confrontational,” Richards says.
Women To say that the Rev. Roy Bourgeois is a thorn in the Vatican’s side is probably an understatement. Bourgeois is a Roman Catholic priest with the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, an order known for its missionary work in some of the most troubled parts of the world. Bourgeois has a long history of social activism. But it is his support for the ordination of woman, in particular, that could get him excommunicated from the church. For priests, excommunication means they can no longer receive the sacraments, such as Holy Communion. And they can’t administer the sacraments or other duties of a priest. Elderly priests who are excommunicated can also suffer financially, since they can be barred from receiving a pension. Bourgeois will be in Rochester on Tuesday, November 27, for a showing of the documentary film by Jules Hart, “Pink Smoke Over the Vatican.” The showing is at 7 p.m. at the Cinema Theater, 957 South Clinton Avenue. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at Spiritus Christi, or $12
at the door. The controversial awardwinning film explores the Roman Catholic Womenpriest movement, an international effort that prepares and supports women called to the priesthood. Bourgeois, who is featured in the documentary, will join panelists, the Rev. Mary Ramerman, a founding member of Spiritus Christi, and the Rev. Jean Marie Marchant, who is also featured in the documentary, for a discussion after the film. Both women, though not recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, are ordained priests. The discussion will be moderated by Lynne Staropoli Boucher, director for the Center for Spirituality at Nazareth College. After spending several years in Bolivia working with the poor, Bourgeois was arrested and deported in the 1970’s after being accused of attempting to overthrow that country’s dictator, General Hugo Banzer. He became an outspoken critic of US foreign policy in Latin America following the rape and murder of four American nuns by a Salvadoran death squad. He protested the activities of the School of the Americas after some of its military graduates were accused of committing human rights violations in Latin
American countries. He’s the founder of SOA Watch, an anti-war and social justice movement, and he’s spent several years in federal prisons as a result of his many protests. In addition to receiving the Purple Heart following a tour in Vietnam, Bourgeois received the Gandhi Peace Award and the Pax Christi USA Pope Paul VI Teacher of Peace Award, and he was nominated in 2009 for the Nobel Peace Prize. In a recent telephone interview from his home in Columbus, Georgia, Bourgeois said the Catholic Church is in crisis. The Vatican’s stance on women’s ordination is discrimination, he said, and its recent crackdown on the Leadership Conference of Women Religious is “arrogant.” The Vatican was critical of the LCWR for not being more outspoken against issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. Bourgeois said the Catholic Church needs to change to remain relevant. He’s saddened that more Catholics are not speaking out on behalf of women who are called to the priesthood, but he said he’s confident change will come eventually. The following is an edited version of the discussion with Bourgeois.
INTERVIEW BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO | ILLUSTRATIONS BY AUBREY BERARDINI
November 21-27, 2012
ITY: You strongly support allowing women to become priests. Did you think this way when you joined the priesthood? Or did you arrive at the idea later in life?
Bourgeois: Growing up as a traditional Catholic in Louisiana, I never questioned our church’s teachings. But then I joined the military after college during the days of the Vietnam War. And that experience in Vietnam really was a turning point in my journey. Death and suffering was close to me, and my faith became more important. I felt this call to the priesthood, but I didn’t know what to do with that feeling. So I talked to an Army chaplain and I asked him to help me discern what I should do. He told me about the Maryknoll order. And within a year, it became very clear that I wanted to pursue my calling. So I went about my work in Bolivia, the US, and elsewhere. And for many years, I never questioned the teachings about women priests. But through my work, I was speaking out against what was happening in the School of the Americas, basically going to hundreds of Catholic churches, colleges, and peace groups about this injustice involving the SOA and US foreign policy in Latin America. And I started meeting these devout Catholic women who shared [with him] their call to the priesthood. My first response was, “That’s our tradition [to exclude women].” I look back on that, and I am embarrassed. But in the seminary, we never once questioned why women couldn’t be priests. It was our church’s teaching that only baptized males could be priests. And that was it. And here’s what it came down to: I started thinking about that word “tradition.” And as I started listening to these women, I remembered my childhood. I went to 12 years of segregated school. In our little Catholic church, the last five pews were for our black members, and for some reason I saw a connection. It was racism, and I didn’t question it. I kept meeting these women, and I started staying awake at night thinking about this connection. My own evolution isn’t based on complicated theological theory. It comes down to two simple questions: First, don’t we as Catholics profess that we are created in the image and likeness of God, and that God created us, men and women, of equal worth and dignity? And second, we all say from the pope on down that the call to be a priest is a gift that comes from God. And that
was my experience in the middle of wartorn Vietnam. I somehow felt that I was being called to do this. And as a male, I could. But these women could not, even though the call they were experiencing was the same as mine. And the question I will bring to Rochester is the same question I ask wherever I speak, and that is, “Who
whether it’s because of race, gender, or sexual orientation, is not of God. These teachings are of men.
So you see the exclusion of women as discrimination, and like all forms of discrimination, an abuse of power?
We say that we were created in the
women and others don’t quite equal us who are white priests, bishops, and cardinals. It’s been reversed, and really God is there to carry out our beliefs. I saw this exclusion of women to the priesthood as a grave injustice against women, but also a grave injustice to the church and, of course, our allloving God. Then I had to ask, “What do I do?” And what I came to is this: Silence is the voice of complicity. And I’ve been calling on my fellow priests and Catholics to break their silence. What helped me was that I began to see how I had become a member of a very privileged group, all male, mostly white. It’s a very powerful culture. And what I have learned in this struggle for gender equality is that we can’t talk about sexism, racism, or homophobia without addressing the issue of power. And in the church there are men who are very powerful figures in this clerical culture, and we’ve become addicted to power. The church that we live in and advocate is not really the model that Jesus talked about. So I can’t be silent no matter the consequences.
Should priests, men and women, be allowed to marry?
Definitely. Even within my own Maryknoll community, we’ve had hundreds of our members who have left, a number of them very good friends, because they couldn’t marry. My friend Paul, while in Bolivia, fell in love with a Bolivian woman. He made a decision to pursue this love and marry, and he was forced out of Maryknoll and out of the priesthood. Marriage, too, has become a form of sexism; women have become the enemy. And we’ve lost some of our best missionaries and priests. We’re only punishing ourselves.
Should women be allowed to become bishops, cardinals, and popes, too?
are we as men to say that our call from God is authentic, but your call as women is not?” I began to see with real clarity how our church’s teaching is rooted in sexism. And for me, sexism, like racism and homophobia, is a sin. No matter how hard we may try to justify it, discrimination against others,
likeness of God, but the problem I see in the church, and this is not recent, is that we have created God in our image. And this all-powerful God who we profess to love becomes a little God, who somehow does not see everyone of equal worth and value. Somehow this God prefers white men and straight men. And somehow
Yes. I don’t see anything wrong with that at all. Two nuns of the four who were raped and killed in El Salvador were [my] friends. And I thought if any of these courageous women who are true martyrs for the faith, who went to El Salvador knowing how dangerous it is, felt the call to the priesthood, they would have been rejected. continues on page 10
Women of a lesser God continues from page 9
I think about how incredible that is. And I think of all the men who don’t compare to the compassion and witness that they gave to helping the poor, but could be priests simply because they are males.
hen we see something that’s wrong, the question is: What do we do? Saint Paul said faith
Jesus is often portrayed as the original activist. Should priests be activists for social justice? Or should they be conformists and purveyors of the church doctrine, which some would argue is what keeps the faith alive?
It’s not about being an activist or a conformist. The answer to that question really involves conscience. Even as a young child, the priest would come in for an hour a week in our little segregated school and talk about the primacy of conscience. Our conscience is our lifeline to God; it urges us to discern and do the right thing. When we see something that’s wrong, the question is: What do we do? Saint Paul said faith without action is dead. A priest said to me, “Roy, I support the ordination of women, but I can’t go public.” I said, “My friend, your silence means nothing. You’ve blessed the injustice.” About Jesus being an activist: He spoke the truth. He lived the life that love is supposed to be about: compassion, service to the poor, justice, and humility. You know that saying, “If you want to be first with God, then get in the back of the line.” Humility in our society is getting lost. I don’t think we’re called to be activists. I think all we’re called to do is be men and women of integrity and to identify ourselves. If we believe, as many of my fellow priests and Catholics say, that women should be ordained, come out.
Many Catholic churches and schools have closed in this region and across the country over the last 30 years. Is there less interest in the Catholic Church in the US? And if so, is it because of the church’s position on issues like ordaining women and contraception?
Without a doubt. I hear this everywhere I go. Catholics come up to me and say they have children who have gone to Catholic

without action is dead.
— The Rev. Roy Bourgeois schools and sometimes colleges. And [the children] come home and say, “Mom, dad, how can you stay with the church? They are so anti-women and so anti-gay.” You see, young people today are so much more educated, and they are less willing to accept teachings without questioning. Does this also explain the shortage of priests?
My own sister, a traditional Catholic, said this doesn’t make sense. In New Orleans, they closed 30 churches last year, not because of the hurricane, but because they don’t have enough priests. Next year at Maryknoll, we’re calling an emergency meeting. We’re gathering our members from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the US at great expense, but we have to do it because we are in a crisis. And our order is not alone. The sex scandals have shaken our church right to the foundation. But the crisis we’re in is not about the scandals alone. We’ve long had a drop in vocation to the priesthood.
The Vatican has cracked down on the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, a group representing many Catholic nuns in the US, for not speaking out against same-sex marriage, women’s ordination, and abortion. What’s the impact of efforts like that?
I think what happened to the nuns really clarifies the problem, in a sense. The problem is patriarchy and sexism, but it’s been going on for 2,000 years. This is nothing new. This has been covered in the Catholic press, but there’s also an article, “The
Sisters’ Crusade,” in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. And what you see in that article is the same as what I hear from my friends and in my travels: [the crackdown] was a turning point for nuns. It emboldened them. First there was an investigation of the LCWR, an all-female organization, by a mostly male group from the Vatican. For three years [they] investigated the nuns. They accused [the LCWR] of causing a scandal for the church. It was so offensive. It was so unjust and cruel, and what you saw was a lot of nuns for the first time break their silence. And many Catholics, too, didn’t like what they saw happening to these women. When our Maryknoll community meets, we’ll be mostly older white men; our average is something like 75. And there’s no hope for that kind of church. We’re moving into a future that doesn’t look like that, and some of us can’t adjust.
You’ve been threatened with excommunication. Where does that stand?
I was notified by the Vatican three years ago. They said I had 30 days to recant my position in support of the ordination of women or I would be excommunicated automatically. I wrote back focusing on this issue of the sacredness of conscience and the problem of sexism that’s rooted in this teaching. I never got a response back until a few months ago. The Vatican instructed Maryknoll to kick me out if I didn’t recant. I’ve been in the community for 40 years, and it’s not clear what my standing is with the Vatican. But Maryknoll has assured me that I am a member priest. And I go about my work in ministry as I’ve done before,
and speaking as I will speak in Rochester in support of women’s ordination. I don’t know what the future holds for me as a priest in the Catholic Church. But I do know that my conscience will not allow me to recant what I truly believe. I do know that trying to stop the ordination of women is like trying to stop the abolition of slavery or the women’s suffrage movement. Many tried, but they failed. I’ve been very disappointed at the silence of many of my fellow priests. I see how fear is dominating our church right now. They [priests] fear speaking out, fear excommunication, and fear losing the pension. And I’m very sad to see how our church is using that word “excommunication” as spiritual violence.
How did your experience with war prepare you to be a better priest?
I didn’t know it at the time, but Vietnam was preparation for living out my faith, including confronting my church’s teachings. I was wounded there, and I lost many friends there. But what I came to was sort of an ability to confront fear. In Bolivia, it was very dangerous under dictatorship. Living there with the poor, where many were killed or imprisoned, the fears came again. I was arrested. Yes, I was afraid, but I didn’t allow my fear to paralyze me. I learned and grew from it.
Given your experience working with the poor in Latin America, do you think the US’s foreign policy during the last half of the 20th century has any relationship to the immigration problems we experience today?
Our foreign policy — the violence, the brutality of their military, which we’ve armed and trained at the SOA — has caused such suffering and death to the people in some of these countries. I mean, I too would want to flee. I would want to get out of there with or without my family. So many who have come here [and now have children born here] were forced to come here by our foreign policy. We need to understand that if we lived under those conditions of extreme poverty, brutality, and fear, we would be fleeing.

Sterling Silver, Flatware, Tea Sets, Broken Gold, Costume Jewelry Americans tend to say they are concerned about the poor, but we’re conflicted about how to reduce poverty. What do Americans not understand about poverty?
Two weeks ago I gave a lecture about three hours from [Atlanta], and before I left, they took me to a work camp. There were about 100 field workers, mostly from Mexico on a three-month visa, living eight to 12 in a trailer. They were picking peppers, getting up very early in the morning and working until dusk, six days a week. Many of us don’t know what it means to work in the heat, hunched over in a field 12 hours a day, day after day earning very low wages. The challenge we face in America today is ignorance. Many of us don’t know the plight of the poor. We usually don’t meet them. And I think there is a connectedness to many of these issues, whether it’s the conditions in Latin America, immigration, and even women’s ordination. We don’t take the time to meet and talk to people, and to know what it’s like to be in their situation. If we did, I think many of us would be more understanding.

What is the future of the Catholic Church under Pope Benedict XVI, who is quite conservative?
That’s the big question. We don’t know. I thought a few years ago of resigning. But I’m in the camp that refuses to leave. We are the church. God speaks through all of us. And I hate to say this, but many of our leaders are bullies. And I never did like a bully, not in Latin America or in the Catholic Church. They are not the owners of the church. They’ve kind of hijacked the Gospel, and if we leave bullies to abuse their power, nothing will change. I feel a lot of hope. I’m blessed because wherever I go, I find kindred spirits who refuse to allow these men at the Vatican who keep claiming as they did recently to the nuns that “We are your bosses, and only we can speak for God.” I mean, what arrogance.

Meat and sleep [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
Throughout time, weary travelers have been able to procure meals and lodging at the same establishment, though the food can sometimes taste mostly of convenience. Ideally, the in-house restaurant should enhance a hotel’s reputation; think Escoffier at London’s Savoy, Ducasse at Monte Carlo’s Louis XV, or Robuchon at Manhattan’s Four Seasons. Here in Rochester the Strathallan has been setting the bar for hotel dining, and now that its approximately $20 million renovation is complete — the new name is Strathallan, a Doubletree by Hilton — CHAR Steak & Lounge is stoking its two-ton, woodburning grill. “Contemporary steakhouse” is how general manager Jason Reiss describes CHAR, locally owned by David Christa and Bob Morgan, as well as restaurateurs John Diamantopoulos and Mark Chiarenza. CHAR is an impeccably appointed space that manages to be sleek and cozy all at once, with overstuffed chairs, roomy booths, subtle pastel mood lighting, and retro lounge music. Behind the scenes, though, executive chef Jeremy Nucelli’s bustling kitchen
handles three meals a day; the breakfast buffet stays consistent with the Hilton brand, but at lunch and dinner, “We really get to put our own stamp on it,” says Reiss. This means classic raw-bar selections; beautifully composed salads like roasted baby beet, radicchio, and pear ($8); and homemade pastas such as a sublime squidink spaghetti alla chitarra in a spicy tomato brodetto, with seafood, saffron, white wine, and toasted garlic bread crumbs ($18/$27). And look for a few inventive fowl entrées, along with plenty of meat. “We’re really focusing on the steaks,” says Reiss, who mentions the acclaimed STK family of restaurants as an inspiration for CHAR’s blend of steakhouse and cocktail lounge. Seared over 900 degrees’ worth of applewood and hickory embers, the beef options range from a petite 4 oz. filet mignon ($18) all the way up to a monster 48 oz. porterhouse ($89). Lunch at CHAR is a scaled-back — but no less appealing — version of its dinner menu, with soup, salads, pasta, risotto, and fish, as well as a few sandwiches, like a roasted turkey club ($12), with bacon, arugula,
tomato, and avocado on honey whole-grain bread. Craft cocktails are available, as is a selection of wines by both the bottle and the glass, both of which Reiss plans to expand on as CHAR settles into its juicy groove. Says Reiss, “We didn’t reinvent the wheel by any means, but it’s a really good wheel.” CHAR Steak & Lounge is located inside the Strathallan at 550 East Ave. It serves lunch 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and dinner 5-10 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 5-11 p.m. ThursdaySaturday, and 4-9 p.m. Sunday. Bar open until 2 a.m. Prices range from $8 to $96. For more information, call 241-7100 or visit charsteakandlounge.com.

Delicious delinquency [ review ] by frank de blase
[ CLASSICAL ] Since 2009, students at the Eastman
School of Music have presented concerts at St. Michael’s Church, under soaring archways and ceiling covered with art, amidst wood carvings with gold leaf, and light streaming through Austrian stained-glass windows. Classical music in the setting of an 1888 Gothic Revival church is sure to delight all the senses. On November 25, the concert will feature the string duo of Hirono Sugimoto, violin, and Philip Borter, cello, performing works of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach, Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály, and Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. — BY PALOMA A.

The Chinchillas Saturday, November 24 Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way 8:30 p.m. | $5-$7 | abilenebarandlounge.com [ AMERICANA ] The Chinchillas is a gem of an alt-
country/roots-rock/Americana band that should be on the lips and iPod of every fan of heartfelt lyricism and lonesome twang. Instead this fantastic foursome wallows beneath gray skies in relative northeastern obscurity. The band has just released “Something Beautiful,” an eight-song pleasure platter on Jargon Records. It rocks throughout with heavy doses of Peter Anvelt’s cynicism and the casually dismissive attitude of a band that’s kicked around long enough to suffer from acute don’tgive-a-shit-itis. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
I’m not fooling when I tell you The Fools ain’t foolin’. Sure, the name might come off as dismissive, but this band positively rocked my ass Thursday night at the Dinosaur, where more heat was coming off of Mickey Ames’ guitar than from the smoker out back. This long-haired cat is in the Rochester electric church; the local pantheon of guitarists like Dave Riccione, Steve Grills, Greg Townson, Bill Rebis, Todd Krasz, Gordon Munding, Steve Green, Brian Mason, Bobby Henrie, and Kurt Johnson who nightly drag Rochester rock ’n’ roll fans across their laps and spank ’em. The Fools rock and wail with a Bay-area boogie reminiscent of a time when starships were still airplanes, and the blues were something you had for real. Singer Mary Ellen Hayden sings through serious pipes not unlike the late Miss Joplin. The band was funky and rocking and an overall blast. Dig it as soon as you can, fool. Caught a bit of Joe Bonamassa’s set Friday night at the Auditorium Theatre. Bonamassa has played the venue enough that he’s really able to work the theater’s sensitive acoustics and put on a blistering show. He’s a tremendous
player with contemporary chops that ultimately keep the blues alive. But I find his songs rather boring. I’m sure I’ll catch hell for that as everyone in attendance was picking up what he was laying down, but his songs lack a certain fire and threat that I like in the blues. His guitar playing more than makes up for it, though — it’s savage, yet slick and flashy. He even dug into the library to tear up a cool version of Chuck Berry’s “Carol.” Back at the Dinosaur, the Salt City’s Turnip Stampede was stampeding the kids with its jam/groove/Stevie Wonder-esque sound. This band plugs in just enough jam to keep the crowd on its feet. Abilene was packed Saturday night for a triple-bill rockabilly riot staring Toronto’s Royal Crowns, one of the finest dealers in classic bop and twang I know worldwide. Krypton 88 has jettisoned the country and has returned to the delicious delinquency of its three-piece roots. The trio played like its players’ heads were on fire and their asses were catching as little pieces of rug were cut all night.

Music back-to-back “24 Hour Party People” and “Control,” the two movies about Joy Division. So like 4 o’clock in the morning I’m like, “I’m going to write a Joy Division song.” It’s the song “God Help Us All” on the album. What bends your ear the most?
The influence is mostly 60’s guitar rock, that’s where my heart has always been. I love psychedelic rock and this band has really allowed me to cut loose on that stuff more than Static Cling did. Stuff like Pink Floyd. I also think there’s some Grateful Dead-Quicksilver-Jefferson AirplaneCountry Joe influences in there. When we played Grassroots, the sound tech said I played more like a sax player. And I thought that was really cool, because if there’s anybody I’ve tried to play like, it’s Pharaoh Sanders. Where does IRO belong, the studio or the stage?
Definitely on stage What are you most proud of with this band? Infrared Radiation Orchestra is a new-ish project started by Kim Draheim (pictured), formerly of bar band Static Cling. Photo by FRANK DE BLASE
One big song Infrared Radiation Orchestra Friday, December 7 Tommy’s, 145 Railroad Ave., Newark 9 p.m. | call for tix | 315-331-0714, reverbnation.com infraredradiationorchestra [ INTERVIEW ] By Frank De Blase
Kim Draheim’s battered guitar is your library card — or perhaps more accurately, your passport — to rock ’n’ roll. After plundering the region for more than 25 years in the guitar-centric hard-rocking bar band, Static Cling, Draheim has reemerged with The Infrared Radiation Orchestra, a classic bar band in the tried and true trio set-up. This Seneca Fallsbased threesome — Draheim, along with Barry Wayne Miller (drums) and Jerry Congdon (bass) — cruises the traditional side street of virtually every road to rock. Leaning heavily on doses of psychedelic and garage rock, the band covers and creates seamlessly. Exhibit A: the band’s new Jargon Records release “Preparing 16 City November 21-27, 2012
the Feast of Skeldon.” But where do the preexisting influences end and the band begin? We asked Draheim, who got on the phone to answer a few questions and explain how it’s all just one big song. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: How did Infrared Radiation Orchestra come to be? Kim Draheim: I was becoming increasingly
frustrated with Static Cling. Cathi [band member Cathi Lee Otis] was having some health issues and was getting out of the band, and also I was getting a lot of flack about direction. I was still very emotionally attached to it, but my wife said, “Why don’t you start a side project?” What my wife didn’t tell me was that Static Cling was going to be over soon. She could see it coming and I couldn’t. So I started a side project and, indeed, within a couple of months Static Cling was done. Having another band softened the blow. How was the transition?
For 25 years with Static Cling I was essentially writing for a three-piece. My writing has evolved with that three-piece
sound in mind, so it was a really easy transition. I ended up with some guys who are excellent singers, so we have three different vocalists. We’re doing a lot more with harmonies than with Static Cling. What Cathi and I were doing was more counter-melodies, criss-crossing, countermelodies. With Infrared I’m doing a lot of straight harmonies. You guys seem to draw from everywhere and everyone.
You know, there’s an old quote from Robbie Robertson from The Band that really sums up how I’ve always felt. He said that if you want to create something original, you better listen to nothing else or everything else. And I’ve been the everything else side of that coin. There’s a little bit of everything in there. But you make it your own, right?
There’s one song on the album — I’m kind of curious how many people will pick up on this… One thing I haven’t done too often in my life is consciously try to write a song that sounds like another band. I was sitting up all night watching
I know this may come off a bit arrogant, but there’re only a handful of bands that are the real thing, and I think people sense that. That’s why I enjoy doing double bills with bands like Anonymous Willpower, because I think they’re one of those bands, too. You’re also an amazing guitar player.
Well, I keep hearing that. I think I’m limited technically, but I do have touch. I know I have a good feel. What makes Infrared Radiation Orchestra the Infrared Radiation Orchestra?
This is going to repel some people… We’re a cover band basically, but we’re not a cover band. I mean, I enjoy arranging songs almost as much as I like writing originals. I enjoy being in a band that gets the fact that it’s all the same. It’s like the hippie bands used to say: it’s all one big song. Whether I wrote it, or Jagger/ Richards wrote it, or Irving Berlin wrote it — it’s what you do with it that matters.

METAL | PIRATE TOY FUND BENEFIT
ALTERNATIVE | WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY
It’s not every day that you mix pirates with metal and not expect a plundered merchant ship or broken barstool. On Black Friday, Monty’s Krown will host a benefit concert for the Pirate Toy Fund. The premise of this event is simple: your donation of one new store-bought toy gains you entrance to the show, and collected toys are distributed to needy children. The line-up features four bands: ambient/alternative rockers Oceans of Insects (pictured), brutal — meaning good — pyros Burn Everything, doom metal/ stoner-rock trio Chillum, and extreme metal heads Bleed The Messiah. Toys are mandatory, pirate speak is optional.
World/Inferno Friendship Society isn’t as much a musical group as it is a sign of Judgment Day. Led by lead singer/master of ceremonies Jack Terricloth, the Brooklyn orchestra-circus-rock-tent revival features a rotating cast of performers that creates a klezmer/jazz/ska/soul-fueled party. There’s never a dull moment on the dance floor when a smidge of punk is added to an already up-tempo fiery combination of musical theater and show tunes. Fellow Brooklyn alt-country band O’ Death co-headlines this concert. The quintet is rooted in rustic American folk and burns with intensity a la Tom Waits. Wild Yaks opens.
Pirate Toy Fund Benefit takes place Friday, November 23, 8 p.m. at Monty’s Krown, 875 Monroe Ave. Admission is the donation of a toy. 271-7050. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

FUNK | UNIVERSE SHARK
EXPERIMENTAL FUNK | DOPAPOD
As the band’s moniker not-so-subtly implies, its music will take a bite out of you. Universe Shark is the proud progenitor of what it calls “carnivorous space funk.” This fearsome foursome takes cues from the independent Buffalo music scene as well as the ever-expansive “jam band” brand. The band’s eclectic and energetic mix of jazz, rock, blues, and funk exhibits a finely coordinated balance between “specificity and improvisation.” Since its formation in the summer of 2008 the group has played close to 200 shows in a little less than four years, and the hard work is paying off. Jeff Miers from The Buffalo News writes that the quartet’s live sets are consistently “taking on a life of their own and moving fluidly through interconnected pieces populated by epic instrumental interplay.” The band is currently in the midst of finishing its debut studio effort, which is due out at the end of the year.
This Brooklyn quartet bends genre boundaries as easily as a toddler with ESP bends cutlery. Like many bands in the “jam” scene, Dopapod’s incessant touring schedule has honed the group’s sound as well as expanded its fan base. The band’s flurried intensity, deep, concentrated grooves, and superior technical musicianship has wowed audiences at a number of big festivals, including Bonnaroo, StrangeCreek, and Camp Bisco. The band incorporates a whole spectrum of sound, from disco and jazz to funk and progressive rock, highlighted by searing guitars and an intoxicating interplay of bass and synthesizer. The most recent releases, “I Saw Live Dopapod Evil Was I” and “Drawn Onward,” put forth the entire package.

Theater that is, after all, called “Motherhood the Musical,” but the narrow focus of subject matter shouldn’t be an excuse to not making the characters into fully realized people in their own right. There are glimpses of real insight, like the moments of terror the new mother experiences just after she gives birth and attempts to breast feed for the first time, suddenly gripped by the realization that she doesn’t entirely know what she’s doing yet. But that all-too-brief moment of honesty is short-lived, quickly substituted for broad jokes about nipple biting. The actresses portraying these women

Word to your mother “Motherhood the Musical” Through January 13 Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, 3450 Winton Place $26-$39, 325-4370, downstairscabaret.org [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
There are certain theater shows that you decide to see because you want to learn, to be challenged, or surprised or moved in some way. Other shows you see because you need a pleasant, inoffensive entertainment to which you can take your grandmother that won’t rile her up too much. The forgettable “Motherhood the Musical,” currently playing at the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre’s Winton Place venue, falls squarely in the latter category. It’s unfortunate, as motherhood is a complex subject near and dear to all our hearts, and one that’s ripe with dramatic and comedic potential. What little narrative there is in “Motherhood” centers around a group of female friends getting together to hold a surprise baby shower for the youngest
member of their group, Amy, who is expecting her first child. The shower setting serves as a clothesline to hang a plethora of musical numbers as the women compare notes about the trials and tribulations that come with raising a family. It’s a sort of a “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” with jazz hands. Admittedly, I am not part of the show’s target audience (it’s worth noting that it comes from the producers of the highly successful “Menopause the Musical”). But certainly I can appreciate a well-told story about modern matriarchs if it’s done with wit or intelligence. Sadly both are in short supply here. Writer Susan Fabisch is content to settle for the formulaic rehashing of sitcom-level cliches about how women are required to be multi-tasking superheroes while the men in their lives are lazy, useless dolts. It feels like a missed opportunity. What is perhaps most problematic about the show is its need to reinforce the notion that a woman’s identity begins and ends with being a mother. These women don’t appear to have any hopes, ideas, dreams, or aspirations outside of motherhood. That may seem like an unfair criticism to raise against a show
are clearly talented and do what they can with the material they’re given. In particular Jewel Lucien’s fantastic voice is capable of wringing the most emotion possible out of “Every Other Weekend,” divorcee Tasha’s big ballad about sharing custody of her children and finding herself in a position she never thought she’d be in again, as she tentatively steps back into the dating pool. It was one of the rare songs that stood out among the nearly 20 others that I struggled to recall just hours after seeing the production. Lisa Manuli and Jen Chada each earn laughs in their roles as a terrified mother-to-be and jaded mother of five, respectively. Though she gives a valiant effort, I found it difficult to buy Ilona Ahearn’s performance as a workaholic lawyer, but that may have more to do with the fact that we never see her character actually do any work related to her job. The show’s director and choreographer, Lisa Shriver, keeps things moving at a brisk pace; the show is certainly lively. But your enjoyment for the production will be entirely dependent on how hilarious you find breast-pump-related humor and songs about incontinence, all presented in the most inoffensive way possible — this is a show that can’t even bring itself to explicitly state what MILF stands for. Still, judging by the cheers, laughter, and nods of recognition from the audience at the performance I attended — unsurprisingly made up mostly of women of a certain age — the majority of the room seemed to get a kick out of the communal experience of seeing their daily lives turned into musical tribute. There’s value in that, and maybe that’s enough. But frankly, I think Mom deserves better.

DANCE | “THE NUTCRACKER”
Towering Christmas trees, toys that come to life, and visions of sugarplums — the wondrous images that “The Nutcracker” ballet evokes always put me in the holiday spirit. For the 14th consecutive year, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Rochester City Ballet, and the Bach Children’s Chorus have combined forces to present Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” to ring in the holidays. From Friday, November 23, through Sunday, November 25, audiences can experience the classic ballet at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre (26 Gibbs St.). To celebrate RCB’s 25th “silver anniversary” season, splashes of silver will be woven into costumes and props throughout Sunday night’s show. Audience members can keep track of the interspersed moments of silver for a chance to win two tickets to RCB’s spring show.

KIDS | HOLIDAY TRAIN RIDES
The beloved children’s book “The Polar Express” made a lasting impression on many when it was published in 1985. Perhaps that’s why so many people now associate train rides with the holiday season. If you’re a fan of the book, and can still hear those crystal-clear bells, there are many opportunities to have your own holiday train ride adventure this winter. For a true “Polar Express” experience, check out Medina Railroad Museum’s Polar Express Train Ride. Read along with the story, meet Santa, sing carols, and enjoy hot cocoa and treats. A special gift will be offered to each child, and pajamas are encouraged. Rides will run Saturdays and Sundays November 24 through December 23. Departure times 3:30 p.m., 4:40 p.m., and 5:55 p.m. Tickets cost $23-$45. Rides leave from the Medina Depot at 530 West Ave. in Medina. For more information call 798-6106 or visit railroadmuseum.net. Visit the New York Museum of Transportation for Holly Trolley (pictured) rides on an authentic 85-year-old trolley car Saturdays and Sundays November 24 through December 16. Rides operate every half-hour starting at 11:30 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. The ride will feature a stop at Remelt’s Evergreen Acres, giving visitors an opportunity to view Christmas trees, wreaths, and decorations. No reservations required. Price included with museum admission, $4-$5. The museum is located at 6393 E. River Road, Rush. For info check 533-1113 or nymtmuseum.org. Another option is to visit with Santa with the Finger Lakes Railway and the Lehigh Valley Railroad Historical Society.

THEATER | “A CHRISTMAS CAROL”
Charles Dickens’ classic tale of London’s most sour and greedy miser who has a change of heart at Christmas is coming back to Rochester this week. For several years Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Blvd.) has upheld this holiday tradition, and will revive it starting Friday, November 23, and continuing through Sunday, December 23. This year’s “Carol” will be based on the 2010 adaptation of the Dickens story by Mark Cuddy, the production’s director, featuring music and lyrics by Gregg Coffin. Returning cast members from years past include Guy Paul as Ebenezer Scrooge, Jim Poulos as Bob Cratchit, Melissa Rain Anderson as Mrs. Cratchit, Ned Noyes as Fred, and Remi Sandri as the Ghost of Jacob Marley. In addition to the showing on Friday at 7:30 p.m., performances will run this weekend on Saturday, November 24, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, November 25, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets start at $25.

THEATER | “MEMPHIS”
The surge in rock musicals in recent years has only left audiences wanting more. In 2010 “Memphis” saw this demand and delivered, winning four Tony Awards that year, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book. The Broadway hit will come to Rochester’s Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) Tuesday, November 27, through Sunday, December 2. In the form of some “roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll,” “Memphis” tells the tale of Huey Calhoun, a young, white Tennessee DJ in the 1950’s who falls in love with rock ‘n’ roll and a spirited black singer — two major taboos. Look for lots of scorching rock and blues numbers, and some equally energetic dancing and singing. Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 30, at 2 & 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, and at 1 & 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 2.

The war over the Civil War [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“Lincoln” (PG-13), directed by Steven Spielberg Now playing
Of all our presidents, Abraham Lincoln dominates motion pictures; simply as a character in film, in fact, he ranks in number of appearances up there with such luminaries as Sherlock Holmes and Dracula. (Honest Abe actually encountered some of Dracula’s relatives in the ridiculous “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” of a few months back, and of course dealt with them handily). In his new movie, “Lincoln,” Steven Spielberg therefore confronts

one of the most revered figures in our past, one of the most familiar chapters in American history, and the formidable challenge of a long cinematic tradition. The director concentrates his focus on a few months in 1865, as both sides in the Civil War recognized its inevitable outcome, though continuing the butchery, and sought some way to make peace. Aside from the war itself, Lincoln’s major struggle involved his efforts to persuade the Congress to pass the 13th Amendment, declaring the equality of black Americans with their white counterparts. The Senate had already passed the bill, but the Congress, dominated by a coalition of conservative Republicans, for a number of reasons, most of them racist, resisted mightily (sound familiar?). As a result of its particular and rather specialized subject, much of the movie reflects a kind of inside baseball, a close study of the intricacies of governmental behaviors in the day. Lincoln (Daniel DayLewis) and his cabinet meet frequently, arguing about his commitment to the amendment, the

methods to obtain passage, and the tricky business of secret discussions with representatives of the Confederacy suing for peace. Lincoln also enlists a slick team of wheeler-dealers led by W. N. Bilbo (James Spader) to wheedle, threaten, bribe, and corrupt those Congressmen opposed to the amendment. Since Spielberg bases the work partially on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s history, “Team of Rivals,” much of the action stumbles through a clutter of scholarly detail. Since the playwright Tony Kushner wrote the screenplay, far too much of it relies on static, talky, enclosed scenes, full of long, dull, often repetitive conversations. Lincoln must convince his cabinet, especially the skeptical William Seward (David Strathairn), of the moral and political importance of the amendment, which precipitates innumerable arguments among the group, some of them surprisingly disrespectful. The liveliest parts of the film, remarkably, show the Congress in session, a rowdy group of tobacco chewers and vulgar shouters who happily insult their opponents with some wonderfully eloquent phrases while passionately arguing their views. The most powerful orator among them, Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones), a radical Republican and dedicated Abolitionist, leads the fight for passage, throwing rhetorical hand grenades at his opponents with sheer delight in the joy of battle. Avoiding the scenery chewing of “Gangs of New York” and the enigmatic narcissism of “There Will Be Blood,” Daniel Day-Lewis resolutely (and refreshingly) underplays the title role. As anyone

Partly cloudy “Silver Linings Playbook” (R), written and directed by David O. Russell Coming soon
“Step Up To The Plate” (R), directed by Paul Lacoste Screens Saturday at the Dryden
expects, his Lincoln is thoughtful, introspective, and tormented, dealing with his unstable wife (Sally Field), a son (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) he wants to keep out of the war, and the manifold problems of overseeing a terrible conflict and controlling a recalcitrant Congress. Frequently quoting odd, irrelevant lines from Shakespeare, telling long folksy stories that often puzzle his listeners, he also however seems sly and even Machiavellian, a clever operator on the rough-and-tumble political stage of 1865. Just about everyone in the large supporting cast performs remarkably well, most of them underplaying like the star, but Tommy Lee Jones simply owns all of his scenes, gleefully abusing his enemies in Ciceronian speeches in the House, manipulating the weaklings he must win over, ardently and eloquently arguing his just cause; at times he appears far more engaging than Honest Abe. James Spader, of all people, provides another pleasant surprise, a slick worker doing Lincoln’s dirty work as if he enjoyed the great game of corrupt politics. Despite a story whose triumph and tragedy is known by every schoolchild, the movie maintains its appeal throughout by mixing humor into some of the most serious moments, showing the sometimes ignoble means that Lincoln employed to accomplish his aims. For all his experience and skill, Spielberg misfires at the end, somehow failing to recognize his own thrilling climactic moments and concluding on a disappointing downbeat, as if he missed the point of his own movie, a point we can all understand.
It was literally a dark and stormy night when I saw David O. Russell’s latest, “Silver Linings Playbook,” but that hurricane rain at least helped to rinse away some of the feeling that I had been utterly, completely used. Maybe you too have experienced that tawdry sensation of watching a film, laughing and crying at the appropriate times, only to have it suddenly occur to you that you’ve invested yourself in a lazy, manipulative fairy tale, one almost totally devoid of substance. And I can’t really pinpoint what ultimately yanked me from the escapism, but it made me wish for something more truthful and much less misogynistic. Russell’s follow-up to 2010’s Oscarwinning “The Fighter” stars Bradley Cooper as Pat, who we meet as he’s leaving the Philadelphia psychiatric ward he was sentenced to after beating his wife’s

lover. It’s a premature exit, we learn, but the bipolar Pat’s plan is to bunk with his mildly smothering parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver) until he gets back on his feet, a task that includes winning back his estranged wife. Nearly everything that Pat does is with an eye toward that romantic delusion, including the dinner he attends where he trades unfiltered screwball banter with the gorgeous Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a snappish young widow with her own big issues. And as more details about Tiffany emerged, I realized what was happening here: yet another variation on what film critic Nathan Rabin dubbed the Manic Pixie Dream Girl, a male-fantasy archetype who redeems troubled boys with her bold, quirky ways. Tiffany is pushy, hot, argumentative, a tiny bit violent, and of course bisexual, having been fired from her last job for having depression sex with everyone at the office. (Because giving her a less demeaning exit wouldn’t enable Pat to defend her honor.) And Tiffany’s final amazing quality is somewhat of a plot point that I won’t give away. It’s usually men who write characters like this, and there is rarely much honesty to these fabrications, designed to attract lost, horny dudes but in real life too obnoxious to keep them for long. But I digress. Wait; no, I don’t. Remarkably clichéd and borderline offensive in its simplistic handling of mental illness, “Silver Linings Playbook” unfolds exactly as you would expect it to, with tranquil interludes, mad dashes, a politically correct assortment of acquaintances, and some super-screechy family drama. There are probably some excellent performances within all that noise; De Niro in particular does compelling work as Pat’s OCD dad, a frustrating role that, again, doesn’t seem like anyone real. Julia Stiles is wasted as Tiffany’s castrating sister, though none
of the female parts — including “Animal Kingdom” nominee Weaver as Pat’s helplessly doting mom — are terribly flattering. And for his first non-“Rush Hour” role in 15 YEARS, Chris Tucker gets to show white people how to dance. Now, you probably can’t tell from reading this that by the denouement I was as choked up as the rest of the audience, the contrivances having worked their calculated magic. Movies like “Flirting With Disaster” and “I Heart Huckabees” have shown Russell to be a very interesting filmmaker, but “Silver Linings Playbook,” adapted by Russell from a novel by Matthew Quick, is not only sort of generic, but sadly uninspired. The highlight of the movie might actually be Cooper; he transforms those big blue eyes of his into something palpably unhinged, and he sustains it throughout the film. His Pat feels lived-in and broken, though not irreparably so, pinning his hopes on what didn’t work before because the choice between familiarity and fear is a tricky one. Blend the peek at the creative process
in “elBulli: Cooking In Progress” with the familial concerns of “Jiro Dreams Of Sushi,” and you’ve got “Step Up To The Plate” (or the better French title, “Entre Les Bras”). It’s a lovely, lyrically shot documentary that spends four seasons with renowned chef Michel Bras as he prepares to retire from his restaurant in Aveyron and pass his formidable legacy — along with three coveted Michelin stars — onto son Sébastien, a 40something family man who inherited his father’s exacting talent. There are a few unnecessarily extended interludes of the two men thinking, but, fortunately, even more scenes of them bickering, which illustrate what we suspect: Michel respects Séba as a peer, and he’s nowhere near ready to stop raging against the dying of the [pilot] light.

Miyazaki’s Academy Award®-winning masterpiece Spirited Away helped redefine the possibilities of animation for American audiences and a generation of new filmmakers. Wandering through an abandoned carnival site, 10-year-old Chichiro is separated from her parents and stumbles into a dream-like spirit world where she is put to work in a bathhouse for the gods, a place where all kinds of nonhuman beings come to refresh, relax and recharge. Combining Japanese mythology with Through the Looking Glass whimsy, Spirited Away cemented Miyazaki’s reputation as an icon of inspired animation and wondrous, lyrical storytelling. (Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi, Hayao Miyazaki, Japan 2002, 125 min.)

THE WRONG MAN

Movies for movie lovers, 6 nights a week. Miyazaki
Hitchcock based this gripping, often overlooked thriller on the true story of an unassuming bass player (played by a remarkably austere Henry Fonda) whose life becomes a nightmare after he’s misidentified as a hold-up man. As the evidence against him mounts, his world begins to crumble — as does the sanity of his wife (a stunning Vera Miles). (Alfred Hitchcock, US 1956, 105 min.)

150 Dorchester Road Wide windows let in abundant light to the spacious rooms of the two-story home at 150 Dorchester Road. Built in 1914 and located in the heart of Browncroft, one of Rochester’s proudest and loveliest neighborhoods, this five-bedroom, 2,436 square-foot dwelling awaits a family that will enjoy its many assets. New owners might also be pleased to learn that the house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Browncroft Historic District, allowing repairs and updates to the home to qualify for the state Historic Homeowner Tax Credit program. A wide, columned entrance porch provides an elegant welcome to this well-designed home. The front door and inside vestibule are both enhanced by graceful leadedglass sidelights. Throughout the house the gleaming hardwood floors and classic crown and baseboard molding define the rooms. In the living room, a working fireplace is flanked by substantial bookcases with diamondpatterned leaded-glass doors. The pattern is repeated in the three decorative windows on the side of the room. A bay window looks out on the serene streetscape. The large front hall leads to an unusual feature: an original downstairs bedroom with a complete bath and a large closet. From the hallway a generous stairway, with a landing lit by tall windows, leads upstairs. There, the four ample bedrooms and a full bath will easily house a large family. A smaller family will find welcome space for an office. The unfinished attic offers an opportunity for expansion.
Downstairs, the dining room is noteworthy for its handsome walls set off by wide panels topped by a dish rail. On the attractive curved ceiling are narrow bands of wood, carved in a fruit and flower motif. A bay window with window seats and two large front windows complete this appealing room. Between the dining room and the kitchen is an old-fashioned pantry with glass-fronted cabinets that extend from the counters to the ceiling. The kitchen opens to the back hallway where a stairway leads to the basement, with a workbench, washer and dryer, and storage shelves at the ready. The back door leads to a compact yard bordered by perennials. The garage, built in 1975, can hold two cars with room to spare. This house has been owned by generations of the Kaiser family. Its best-known resident was Dr. Albert D. Kaiser [1887-1955], one of the most distinguished and influential pediatricians and public health officers in Rochester in the 20th century. 150 Dorchester Rd. is listed through Mark Siwiec of Nothnagle Realtors for $209,900.

Fun [ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD In October, state alcohol agents, assisted by local police in full riot gear, pointing their weapons, raided a bar in Largo, Fla., to shut down the latest gathering of the venerable Nutz Poker League, even though its players do not wager. (They meet at bars and restaurants, where management gives winners token gifts in exchange for the increased business.) A prosecutor told the Tampa Bay Times that Florida law defines illegal “gambling” as any game that permits players to win something -- even if they don’t have to “ante up.” The raid (during which players were ordered to keep their hands where the officers could see them) came after a months-long undercover investigation.
— Among the most creative illegal behaviors are those of clever smugglers -- or immigrants trying to enter a country illegally. In September, two Moroccans tried to smuggle a Guinean man into Spain at the Melilla border in north Morocco by disguising him as a Renault car seat. One Moroccan drove, with the passenger perched on a seat in which the foam had been removed to make room for the Guinean. A police spokesman called the attempt “novel.” — India’s notorious bureaucracy records deaths particularly ineptly, to the advantage of men seeking an alternative to divorce. They find it easier merely to swear out a death certificate on one wife so they can marry another, but that means the first wife will face years, and maybe decades, of campaigning to convince officials that she is not dead. BBC News chronicled the plight of Ms. Asharfi Devi, now 64, in September as she was finally declared “alive” after being deserted by her husband at age 23 and ruled dead at age 40. After Devi finally earned a hearing and brought relatives and evidence to the village council, deliberations took eight more months. Notwithstanding the ruling, the husband stuck to his story.
— Puzzingly, adults continue to accidentally ingest improbable objects, often seemingly unaware of what they did. Lee Gardner, 40, of Barnsley, England, swallowed a plastic fork 10 years ago, but said he “forgot” about it until violent stomach pains forced him to the hospital in August. And British student Georgie Smith, 19, became the latest person to accidentally swallow a regular-sized toothbrush (though the first doctor she consulted told her he couldn’t spot any “toothbrush” on an X-ray). (With kids, the phenomenon is more understandable. Sinus-suffering Isaak Lasson, 6, of Salt Lake City was finally diagnosed in August to have accidentally stuck a Lego piece up his nose three years ago, and Hector Flores Jr., 7, of New York City, was found in October to have swallowed the whistle mechanism of a plastic duck, causing him to tweet when he laughed.) — Again this year, a serial drowning made the news (where one jumps in to rescue another, and a third is needed to rescue the first two, and a fourth, and none survives.) In Ulster, Northern Ireland, in September, rugby player Nevin Spence, along with his brother and father, died in a slurry tank on the family’s farm, and their sister, who also attempted a rescue, was hospitalized. Officials said they could not determine the order in which the men entered the pit until the sister was well enough to talk. — Darren Hieber, 33, became the most recent person to choose drastic means to reconcile with an ex. Twice Hieber, of Onawa, Iowa, arranged to have himself shot in order to win his ex-wife’s sympathy. The first hit man shot Hieber in the leg, but the wife still ignored him, and a second job was arranged in March, with two different shooters, but that failed, also. Adding to his frustration, Hieber was sentenced to 10 years in prison in August because it is illegal in Iowa to have yourself shot.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 34 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t jump to conclusions when it comes to love. Reserve judgment, do your research and wait for signs that will help you recognize whether you are considering someone who will have a positive or negative influence on your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Opposites do attract, and you are likely to find that you are faced with trying to decide whether you can spend the rest of your life with someone who has little in common with you. Focus on what does attract you and if it’s sufficient. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid moving too quickly if someone
entices you. Truth and motives will be questionable. Don’t fall for smooth talk or a hard-luck story. Keep your wits about you, and do your research before you jump into an intimate situation that might lead to heartache. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Socialize and enjoy the company of people who share your interests and beliefs. Sticking to traditions that you are comfortable with will help ensure that you choose someone who will fit into your lifestyle easily. Love is highlighted, so don’t be shy -- make the first move. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel to a
destination that will be conducive to reconnecting with an old flame or will bring you the opportunity to meet someone exotic or unusual. Change is what you need in order to lift your spirits and forget darker days. It’s time to play. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotions will be close to the surface, and discovering someone who intrigues you and holds your interest for hours on end is in the stars. Travel to meet someone new and discuss your personal plans and life goals. Greater stability and security is within reach. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t be disturbed by a change of plans.
Go with the flow, knowing that what doesn’t work out is a blessing in disguise. You need more time to consider an old relationship and if, in fact, you should turn back the clock and reunite with someone you still long for. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your unique, mysterious demeanor will attract a lot of attention. Make sure that the person you are pursuing is free and clear of a past relationship before making a move. Getting hooked on someone who is involved with someone else will not end well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): What you agree to and what
you want will differ. You have to be honest about your likes and dislikes if you want to end up with someone who thinks like you and enjoys the same things. Don’t let someone from your past confuse you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t make snap decisions when it comes to love. You have to do your due diligence even when you heart is telling you to move forward. Not everyone you meet will be straightforward regarding feelings and plans. Protect your heart and your possessions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick close to home and spend
time with the person who makes you feel most comfortable. Venturing out and meeting new people isn’t likely to bring you in contact with anyone who can offer you what you need or want personally, romantically or emotionally. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Love and romance are highlighted. Don’t sit home waiting for someone to knock on your door. Get out and do the things you enjoy doing most, and you will connect with someone emotionally and physically and with regard to your plans and personal goals.
