I guess all the French aren't so bad...

PARIS - Two men attacked the director of a Paris theater Sunday, punching him and slashing his face, apparently because of a play he is staging that criticizes President Bush (news - web sites), the theater said.

Attilio Maggiulli, director of the Theater of Italian Comedy, was attacked in the building's entrance on Sunday, said Claudine Simon, his assistant. One man held him down, while another cut his face. They also splashed paint on the theater's walls, she said.

It was unclear exactly what motivated the beating, said Simon, who said she found her employer bleeding in the entryway. But she said it may have been over the play the theater has been showing since Wednesday, titled "George W. Bush, or God's Sad Cowboy."

Simon suggested the assailants might have been offended by a poster showing a skull in a cowboy hat to represent Bush, or by a photo of an Afghan man that the theater showed as part of its publicity display.


"They said things like, "Oh, you're defending the Arabs," Simon said. They also insulted President Jacques Chirac, one of the main opponents of the U.S.-led war in Iraq (news - web sites). The play is critical of Bush but doesn't directly touch on the Arab world, Simon said.

The assailants fled, and Maggiulli was treated at a Paris hospital, Simon said.

The theater director wants to shut down the play to protect the actors, but a final decision has not yet been made, Simon said. Maggiulli founded the theater in the Montparnasse neighborhood to stage works by Italian playwrights performed in French.

Steve, if you actually read posts before you post, you would know the satirical nature in which this was posted.

Well I am pretty sure that just because I accidentally put one too many letters in a word that it does not make me retarded.
I have read a lot of Old Fawk's posts and I do not agree with most of what he has to say. And yes I may still be labeld a punk ass newbie but I have been a member for quite sometime, I just usually do not find it necassary to reply.

Steve,

You were entirely correct with your first comment.

Though I'm sure old fawk may have just been sarcastic, most people on this board are predominately conservative. If you don't think like they think, then you are a lunatic liberal terrorist. How can anyone help but take someone serious after all of the bashing that goes on.


Have a nice day.

You called me reatarded because I made the comment they not all French were bad because a few of them bloodied a French director. It was posted in a satirical nature.

You readily admit you don't agree with most of what I say (which is cool).

You decided that this was an easy post to *own* me (by the use of the "are you retarded?"). In the process, you owned yourself.

The post was so obviously sarcastic. For your benefit, I will mark are sarcasm in the future with [sarcasm][/sarcasm].

I understood that you were not being literal. But it did seem that you were slightly condoning the actions of the assailants.Which I sort of found offense to because there actions were in no way justified. Ill try to not get pissed in the future when you are being sarcastic.

Sorry, it makes no sense to me.

Get pissed all you want. Its a message board. Getting pissed at others over the internet is half the fun. Enjoy it!

TBird, welcome home. Hope Cali didn't change you any.

I know every time I go out there (which is frequent, the freeway shot you took look really familiar) I wonder why I come back. Then I talk to a few people in Texas and realize why I did!

An old dick, with droopy balls.

Honestly, that was my first time ever to Cali but I don't see myself going back for a while. It was waaaay too busy, with signs and cars and shit in your face everywhere you go. Plus what's the good of having a beautiful sunny beach if the ocean water is 52*?

Fugg that, I'm headed to Florida next time I want to hit up the beach.
