Thanks, Ed.  I certainly did not mean to denigrate what I do.  I love it.  I get the shakes if I do not have a project coming up with kids.  I love being in the trenches with the kids.  I love it when an 11-year old, somber-faced actor approaches me and tell me, "My character would never say that line."  And I wrote  the character and the line!  And he was right!  My daughter was a snowflake in one of my plays ... once upon a time ...  and these days I strive to give them a bit more then "2nd carrot from the left."  As Cynthia Nixon noted, "I am a theatre junkie."  As a theatre-junkie myself, I hope to nudge all my young theatre-junkies to at least occupy a seat in the theatre as they grow.
