My respect for Genii has completely vanished and I will not renew my subscription. The concept of advocating or suggesting that anyone should "punch him in the face" is so tasteless, crude and unprofessional that both the writer and editor should be ashamed. Is this what the practice of our art leads to -- violence against anyone who holds a different view than yourself? Magicians offer a different view of just about everything -- so should you just knock down a spectator or kick him a couple of times because he doesn't applaud? Your just purchased trick doesn't work as well as you desire, so when you meet Sankey at a convention you shoot him, right? Why hit Hawkings anyway -- more fun to dump him out of his wheel chair or shove him in front of a bus. What an insult to Dave Neighbors to suggest that he would be anything but polite to a stranger regardless of his beliefs. I have long felt and taught the being a performing magician should make of you a better person. Obviously ,Genii thinks the opposite -- that one should become less human and sensitive -- even cruel in order to be an effective performer. Yeah, I know -- it's supposed to be a joke ... even worse. I'm not against violence -- a disabled Viet Nam vet, but to advocate violence for something so trivial is appauling. Or maybe you are are just against people with disabilties. Either way it is no laughing matter. [/quote]
