The DNA's the Thing

I reported last month on DNA tests that proved Shawnee Chief Blue Jacket was not a white settler named Marmaduke van Swearingen. This must have come as a shock to a theater group in Xenia, Ohio, which has, since 1981, "proudly presented the story of Marmaduke Van Swearingen a young white settler who left the society he was born [into] to live his dream of becoming part of the Shawnee."

The producer of the outdoor drama "Blue Jacket" announced yesterday that the 2006 summer season might be canceled, "because of funding shortfalls." That's theater-speak for "major rewrite."
