I directed and played the part of Ken Hoyle in the Roundabout Theatre Arts 2000 production of Three Hotels. I had no idea this post was placed in peacecorponline but I am glad to see it. The subject seems particularly important with what has happened in New Orleans with hurricane Katrina and the images the world is seeing of poverty and abandonment in the U.S. and how poorly we have managed the emergency. I understand the movie released this week in U.S. theatres, "The Constant Gardner" has a third world theme or statement regarding the attitude of corporations toward third world countries.
