    Obviously, Mr. Levy's saturation of the pavlovian conditioning by the media world, capitalism, ad-campaigns and the 'sell, sell, sell' mentality has gotten the best of him and exposed his absurd opinion concerning this issue: "Like every production, be it a flop or a hit, the future of this show will also be decided by the audience. In the meantime, as the first act shifts into high gear, the viewers are yawning." Levy's COMFORT ZONE of boxing, shrink-wrapping and slapping a nice flourescent price sticker on the box of his opinion doesn't diminish the importance of the issue; it just goes to show the reader how absurd journalists can get. Let's see mr. Levy do that for what happened in Germany, throughout Europe and Russia??? Bring it on: lets see if you can turn THAT into a media metaphor. Mr Levy: this is not a joke, nor is it a 'production'...it represent the heart and sole of a suffering, persecuted people who have endured centuries of pain. Please don't attempt to devaluate!
