A hilarious western cartoon spoof sure to haunt the dreams of young children
Rango (voiced by Johnny Depp: The Tourist) is a chameleon with an identity crisis. Kept in captivity, he makes himself the hero of elaborate plays, using a Barbie torso, a windup fish and a dead bug as a supporting cast.
Dear Bay Weekly:
We all know that the issue of when puzzle solutions should appear has been put to bed, several times. However, as a kind-of speed reader, I'm weekly dismayed as I finish reading the letters and — zip — my eyes stumble onto the crossword answers. How about a compromise? Publish in the same edition as the puzzle, but upside down. Thanks for your consideration.

Dear Bay Weekly:
In May 2009 you published my Bay Reflection, “After the Strawberry Storm.”
Every spring, usually in May, when we would get a strong storm with wind and plenty of rain, my great grandfather Johnny Burns would say, “Well, that was the strawberry storm. Now we can get on with spring.”
This Second Star Productions work is clever as a TV sitcom, with the warmth of live action and evolving characters.
There is immense talent at 2nd Star Productions and when the company challenges themselves with a great script, as they did with My Fair Lady, the result is spectacular. When they work with weaker scripts, however, they cannot grow beyond the script limitation, Be My Baby is such a case.
Identity and integrity figure large in this Dignity Players’ showing that addresses the masks we hide behind.
What is truth: fixed standard or fluid interpretation? Is a visionary artist an outsider or an insider? Is an expat a pioneer or a coward? Is a fist perhaps just a hand? Is an ex-lover ever a friend? These are just a few of the themes in Donald Margulies’ 1992 Obie Award-winning play, Sight Unseen, a provocative and entertaining look at an artistic superstar and the forces that shape him.
