  • Rhinoceros!

    Posted by David Foster on February 26th, 2009 (All posts by )

    This link is not about a zoological species, but rather about Israel-bashing, anti-Semitism, and political intimidation on an American college campus. It deserves careful reading.

    The “rhinoceros” reference is, of course, to Eugene Ionesco’s 1959 play, which is summarized at the link. (The play has also been made into an excellent film, featuring Zero Mostel–this would be a very good time to order it from Netflix or pick it up at a local video store.)

    See also my 2002 post on the rise of political violence and intimidation in America.

      I couldn’t help but notice this title as one of the most trafficked pages on my own website (go figure) is this picture of a rhino that I took on a family trip to the Detroit Zoo.

      Also, I read and loved Ionesco’s RHINOCEROS in 12th grade French back in the day!
