You've probably heard about the Awful Tweets About Japan That Got People Fired. Mississippi governor Haley Barbour's press secretary wrote one. Comedian Gilbert Gottfried wrote a whole bunch of them, costing him a cushy gig with the insurance company Aflac as the voice of their bespoke duck.
(And yes, a lot of people wrote and tweeted insensitive things about Japan that didn't get them canned, including 50 Cent and Rush Limbaugh.)
Author Teresa Funke wrote the book “Dancing in Combat Boots” about women’s experiences during WWII. She’ll perform a one-woman show based on that book March 9 & 10 at Bas Bleu Theatre in Fort Collins.

It’s not often that a writer and historian steps over into the world of acting. But that’s what Teresa Funke has done with her 2007 book “Dancing in Combat Boots”. It presents 10 fictional stories based off women’s real experiences at home and abroad during World War II. During March, which is Women’s History Month, KUNC’s Grace Hood sat down to talk with Funke about her upcoming play and book--and one thing you may not know about Greeley’s past.
