Typical "Good Deal" for Trump: book kids, make them learn song, stiff them. Trump puts a cool $2500 in his pocket. That's how he got "rich."
Did you like those dancing patriotic kids who sang at a Trump rally? Then you'll love The Late Show's even-more-patriotic grown-up version.

Our police departments seem to have an inability to see their own racism and reactionary responses to being exposed as culpable in a murder of a Black American.
Last week, an Air Force veteran named Chris LeDay posted the first video of the police shooting of Alton Sterling to go viral. LeDay obtained the video from a friend of a friend. He shared the video with some 10,000 followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Soon after the video went viral, LeDay says he was detained at his job at the Dobbins Air Reserve Base. Police then led him from his job in shackles and held him for 26 hours. He was then ...

Story
Introduction
Started acting at 6 (1955), doing puppet shows for the other kids in the neighborhood; grew up in the country imitating Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn; signed my first contract, as an Actors Equity Apprentice, in the summer of 1965. I then spent two summers at Mount Union College acting repertory theatre while taking classes, then nearly three years at Bowling Green State University, but left in early 1970 to do kids' shows in Detroit four years as a clown and puppeteer, with hopes of landing a national tv show. Soon after moving to Detroit (1970) I married my sweetheart from Cedar Point, Jennie,. Following our four years working in the Detroit area, for two years I did shows in Kent,  Cinci, NYC, Indianapolis, Peoria, and Louisville. We moved to the Chicago in '76 and since then, I have been working here and around the country, as well as in Canada, Wales, and Barcelona. We now live in Oak Park , Illinois, where we raised our two grown sons. I started Mark Twain In Person Audio in 2003, publishing Mark Twain audiobooks and have produced dozens of titles by other authors on audible. com.

Education
  • Jackson Memorial High School
    College Prep, 1964 - 1967
  • Canal Fulton Summer Arena
    Theatre-Acting; Equity Apprenticeship, 1965 - 1965
    Full summer season as an Actors Equity Association apprentice. Performed in three productions for young audiences and one mainstage production; also as assistant stage manager, props, set construction, quick change (was Bob Balaban's change assistant in "Forum" and Dody Goodman's in "Dody and the Tiger"). Also took out the trash and refilled the kerosene torches around the patio. And skimmed the pool.
  • Mount Union College
    Theatre-Acting, 1966 - 1967
    For two summer semesters, I had a work/study grant "Theatre Five" -- a five play repertory in a small proscenium theatre on campus. The first summer I audited Acting, Theatre History, and Stagecraft classes, along with acting in "Camelot," "All The Way Home," "The Drunkard," "The Great God Brown," and "Guys And Dolls."
  • Bowling Green State University
    Speech/Theatre, 1967 - 1970
    Dr. Lois Cheney, who taught one of the very first Oral Interp classes I took there, was very instrumental in the evolution of my "Mark Twain In Person" show. John Hepler taught stagecraft, also an important influence. The school's proximity to Sandusky and Cedar Point was also important to my timeline, as that was the venue for my first long run as Mark Twain; 443 performances in the summer of '68.
