Editor, the Gauntlet:

First, your recent editorial on Stroumboulopoulos ["Recipients should be more relevant," editorial, Oct. 25 Gauntlet] got it half-right. He shouldn't get a University of Calgary honorary degree now, but his getting it later is not a given. In any case, George got it right with his remark: "bizarre." Add oilman Gwyn Morgan into the mix and it's like giving away prizes from a Cracker Jack box. How about Harvey the Hound?

  Fantastic flamenco!PDF files may take a moment to load

Only in Calgary would things like jazz shows and flamenco dance still be considered avant-garde. But since it is, why not take advantage of it! There is a special quality and ambiance to dance productions that are a bit off-the-radar in even well-known genres that isn't always evident amidst better-known dance companies. Some artists in this city have dedicated themselves entirely to developing in a genre that few might consider delving into. That genre, in this case, would be flamenco.
