Who doesn't enjoy the image of a witty jester arousing the subterranean senses of humor tightly guarded within a generally unsympathetic patriarch? As opposed to the lifeless subservient henchmen at his disposal; safe from harm for the most part except for the occasional exhibitions of sadism on a whim. At least when a jester gets punished it's for having the gumption to risk their neck on the effectiveness of a joke. And yet people manage to dedicate several hours of air time about the dangers of "cancel culture." Then there's the vicious searing version of a fool as in King Lear. With the nerve to ask a king: "Dost thou know the difference, my boy, between a bitter fool and a sweet fool?" Or to incisively ask: "May not an ass know when the cart draws the horse?"

The Patrons

Oh, dear Bill you have left us. You were such a part of the early days, the days when Taos won our hearts. Our first interaction with you was as patrons of your Plaza Movie Theater. Soon after we moved here, Michael and I bid on a raffle ticket for a year of free movie-going … we had the highest bid. We lived a few blocks from your movie theater and our television had broken. We took brazen advantage of our prize. You had an intricate schedule of movies ranging from soft porn to classic Bergman. I think you were in love with Julie Christie. We went to movies at your place at least twice a week. Soon our children caught on, and they would even bring "cousins" to watch cartoons. You just smiled and welcomed us all. Thank you.

TISA Director Rich Greywolf and longtime musician and TISA staff member David Kinney would liven up the school's lunchtime by singing Happy Birthday and other engaging songs to the kids.
