How best to re­spond to ‘Hamil­ton’ ac­tor

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: Re­gard­ing the lec­ture de­liv­ered Nov. 18 by “Hamil­ton” ac­tor Bran­don Vic­tor Dixon to Vice Pres­i­dent-elect Mike Pence: I be­lieve Don­ald Trump is tak­ing a mis­guided ap­proach in his de­mand for an apol­ogy and a boy­cott of the pro­duc­tion.

A more pro­duc­tive ap­proach would be to call on his sup­port­ers to take a page from the play­books of Oc­cupy Wall Street and Black Lives Mat­ter — to gather sev­eral thou­sand peace­ful demon­stra­tors to block the en­trance to the Richard Rogers Theatre dur­ing a week­end per­for­mance. Ticket hold­ers no doubt would ap­plaud this coura­geous dis­play of the First Amend­ment in ac­tion.
