Last Night

I told my financial class at County College of Morris that I was going to teach a course in the fall on Great Singers of the Past.

A pretty young woman said she'd take it. She likes older singers.

Like...Doris Day.

Doris Day!

I had to repeat the name, so make sure that I had heard right.

I said that DD had appeared in a movie called Love Me or Leave Me.

I didn't know she made movies, said the pretty young woman. (!)

I said it was a biography of Ruth Etting, who was a far better singer

But if you read the postings on YouTube about opera singers, the acrimony is amazing. The writers get so worked up about whether A sings better than B. What foul language! I'm going to save some of the shocking exchanges.
