On Tuesday, September 18th we traveled to Paducah's Market House Theatre for Democracy & the Informed Citizen.
The evening began with a "cuttings" read of the play All the King's Men. The cast included Jacob Waid as Jack Burden, Tony Kitchen as Willie Stark, Josh Morehead as the Professor, Victoria Kitchen as Sadie Burke & Mother Burden, Ashlee Soldo as Lucy Stark & Anne Stanton, Andrew Castleman as Adam Stanton, Tom Stark & Mr. Larsen, and Tom Dolan as Judge Irwin, Tiny Duffy & Mr. Frey.
Following the play reading, a panel including public figure Judge Thomas B. Russell, journalist Steve Wilson, and scholar Dr. Duane Bolin led a community discussion about journalism and politics. The conversation was moderated by newspaper columnist Constance Alexander.
