Busloads of school children who paid for a field trip celebrating the Christmas holidays learned a Grinchly lesson.
Thousands of youngsters had paid between $10 and $20 apiece to attend a show called “Christmas From Around the World.” But when their school buses arrived Wednesday morning, the kids found a shuttered playhouse and a missing promoter – along with their money.
“The Grinch raised his ugly head today,” said Mary Ross Agosta, spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Miami, which sent students from seven Roman Catholic schools to the show.
Maybe this is really just an artistic representation of how secular Christmas is around the world. An empty stage reflects the attempts by the “being offended” police to remove all Christians symbols. Taking the money and running also artistically reflects the materialism of the Christmas shopping season. Instead of fraud he could call it performance art.
