This was forwarded to me from a friend. It always makes me feel good when Jane Fonda is ignored.

"A friend in Sarasota just called; she had just returned from
attending the Sarasota Ballet at our Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall; we were=
all talking at a party last night about "Hanoi Jane" Fonda's cancellation o=
f her appearance at the Hall--which seats 1,800 people--for a program called
"An Evening With Jane Fonda" set for tomorrow night.

The cancellation notice in our local left wing newspaper said it was for "family reasons."

Our friend spoke to the hall's manager after the ballet and asked him why?

He replied with a twinkle in his eye; "Because we only sold 40 tickets!"

That call made my day; hope it makes yours, too."


This story came in the form of an email. I checked the Van Wezel Perform Art Hall schedule, and found indeed the information accurate. I googled "Van Wezel Performing Art Hall Jane Fonda"

An Evening with Jane Fonda: Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Monday, April 3, 2006, at 8 PM. Tickets are $60, $50, $45

Would you pay $60 dollars to see Hanoi Jane? There are "people" who would.

I wouldn't see her for free.

Wouldn't that be nice, that no one had to see her, even for free. There's a great thought.
