Offices, is a play written by Ethan Coen, one half of the brothers who brought us No Country For Old Men, Raising Arizona and Fargo. It concerns the ups and downs of working in an office. The play runs 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays at Aux Dog Theatre (3011 Monte Vista). If you go see this, you will have a good time, but I can't ensure you won't be a) shot in the head with a cattle gun, b) mercilessly hunted by Randall "Tex" Cobb or c) killed and fed into a wood chipper by a creepy blond guy.
I recently found out I am going to be a father. In order to take care of business, I will be returning to my favorite state, Oklahoma, where the baby, not yet among us, is going to be born. His or her mom lives there also.
I used to be a police reporter there. I was never bored. People got shot in the head and walked inside, retrieved a gun and shot back. Well, that might have happened once. Running gunfights between gang members were called "justified." That did happen. It was legal to shoot someone if they bothered you. This last one isn't true.
You have two choices for entertainment.

Curator and illustrator Shirl Sazynski says narrative painting, storytelling, cartooning, character design and comic art produced by female artists is often vastly different in style, subject matter and theme from their male contemporaries.
Come by the Main Library (501 Copper NW) to decide for yourself. Telltale features works by Sazynski and True Blood comics writer Mariah McCourt, among others. The show runs through March 31.
