Seems like only yesterday that I wrote about Joe (not his real name). You might not remember; he was the meth dealer I spent a day with some four or five years ago. I made a long road trip a few months ago, where I found him back at work for my client.
From blockbuster movie to the Heritage Academy stage, "High School Musical" adds a contemporary sheen and story to classic musicals in the tradition of "Grease" and "West Side Story."
