Not There This Week

On page two you usually have a comic (Obermeyer). I don’t see it this week (November 10). I was just curious what happened, if whoever writes it doesn’t do it anymore or what, cause I look for that every week.

Classical Music Hip for Our Day and Age

Occasionally you have little blurbs about the San Diego Opera, and you have pretty good music reviewers. I was surprised that none of them wrote about the loss of the Chinese opera group called Lin Wah.

They are a Chinese opera group that has been around for a long time. I guess they lost funding. They were mostly seniors — even octogenarians! It was my hope that the San Diego opera would adopt Chinese opera into their repertoire, as we have so many fantastic Asian and Asian-American musicians, conductors, and directors in all our different orchestras. They have such a huge volume of material, and it is awesome.

I invite you to check out Lin Wah on Youtube. These guys are great. Sure, Wagner ... Adams, he’s great ... Phillip Glass, awesome. But there’s a huge repertoire of really interesting-sounding music with interesting stories and almost drag-queenlike make-up and androgynous. It’s really pretty hip for our day and age.

Anyway, that’s what I was hoping I would see in your paper.

Print It in the U-T

I just saw Don Bauder’s article of October 20. What an excellent article that was. I would love to see it in printed in the [Union-Tribune] so that other people could see the whole situation here.

An idea to directly impact homelessness: raise the CRV on specially-marked beverages so homeless can make real money recycling them. Not a handout, don't need to vote on it (yes, we do!), no increase in taxes. Consumers can choose to pay higher CRV, or not. Almost like fundraising (e.g. the Olympics), except the homeless have to earn it. No racial bias, and savings to public agencies could be substantial. Are we going to solve this problem, or not??
