by:  Thom Dunn at 02/19/2014

The 2014 IRNE Award Nominations have been announced, and the Huntington has received 29 nominations for 6 productions (including several nominations that are competing against each other in the same category, although we have no full category sweeps this year). For those who aren't familiar, the IRNE Awards are presented by the Independent Reviewers of New England, and recognize theatres on every scale on exemplary performances in the previous calendar year (as opposed to our traditional Producing Season Year of September to June).

    It is a far more crowded agenda than Mr. Obama anticipated last spring

    Coach Outlet

    when the summit meeting was to be focused on winding down NATO

    Coach Factory Outlet

    s combat mission in Afghanistan. By 2015, it is scheduled

    Coach Outlet Online

    to become a training and assistance force of 8,000 to 12

    Minority groups and Democrats in Texas have loudly opposed

    Coach Outlet Store Online

    a state law requiring voters to show government-issued photo

    Coach Factory Outlet

    identification before casting their ballots. But one of

    Coach Outlet

    the law’s biggest critics can be found not in Texas

    Coach Handbags Outlet

    On Tuesday, in a federal courtroom in Corpus Christi

    Coach Outlet

    but in Washington — Eric H. Holder Jr., the United States attorney general.

    Coach Outlet

    Tex., Justice Department lawyers will try to persuade

    Chanel Handbags

    a judge to strike down the voter ID law, the latest

    Louis Vuitton

    skirmish in a three-year legal battle over whether

    Louis Vuitton Outlet

    the law passed by the Republican-led Legislature in 2011

    Gucci Belts

    discriminates against blacks and Hispanics. If Texas

    Gucci Belt

    loses the trial — which opens Tuesday and will last

    Coach Outlet Online

    about two weeks — it could again be required to seek federal

    Coach Outlet

    approval before making changes to its voting procedures

    Coach Factory Outlet

    a level of oversight it was freed from by the United States Supreme Court.

    Coach Factory Outlet

    The case has taken on a bitter political undertone

    Coach Outlet Store

    with Texas alleging that the Justice Department has gone

    Coach Outlet Store Online

    after “only Southern, Republican-led states

    Coach Outlet

    and suggesting that the agency ignores the concerns

    Coach Factory Online

    of white Republican voters and favors minority Democratic

    Coach Factory Outlet

    voters. The allegations have outraged lawyers

    Coach Factory Outlet

    for the Justice Department and several minority groups, voters

    Coach Outlet

    and Democratic lawmakers who are part of the agency

    Coach Outlet Store Online

    s lawsuit against Texas.“It’s more of a political argument

    Chanel Outlet Online

    than it is a legal argument,” said J. Gerald Hebert

    Louis Vuitton Outlet

    one of the lawyers for several plaintiffs suing the state

    Louis Vuitton Handbags

    including Representative Marc Veasey, Democrat of Texas.

    Texas wants to argue about everything except the facts of this case.

    Texas and eight other mostly Southern states with a history of discrimination

    Louis Vuitton Outlet Online

    had been required under the Voting Rights Act to receive clearance from

    Oakley Sunglasses Outlet

    either the Justice Department or a federal court in Washington before

    Louis Vuitton Outlet Online

    they made changes to their voting regulations. Texas sought

    Oakley Sunglasses Outlet

    so-called preclearance of the voter identification law

    Cheap Oakley Sunglasses

    rom the federal court in 2012. The court sided against

    Oakley Sunglasses

    f Texas and blocked the law because it disproportionately affected the poor and minorities.
