    an outstanding theatrical drama in this (I'm prejudiced for live theater). I can picture Taxi Cab Confessions, only instead sex, it's about our country and others who have been through what we are going through now.  Three acts, each with a different cabbie as the main character.  The interviewer gives a little pre and post piece (as the author has here) and some asides during the act.  The net would be a thought-provoking, emotionally wrenching piece.  

    Consider it. I have an acting group that would be interested in producing it.

      I wonder if there couldn't be break aways to vignettes of relevant events enacted by a small ensemble between the cabbies' stories. Jeez, there is so much talent here, I'd think someone could do it! Actually, I'm going to forward the idea to a young woman who is studying theatre in Chicago. Thanks for the nudge!!

        A protagonist, an observer, and a theme that runs through the three acts that ties them together. Makes for some moving scenes and synthesis of emotion at the viewer level providing catharsis at the end. I'm going to actually talk this up with the group. I think there is something very powerful here. This is a message that will ring with an audience.
