Move Over, Rigoletto...

...here comes another clown:

"MILAN, Italy (AP) - First it was the film and the book. Now the next stop for Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is opera.
La Scala officials say the Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been commissioned to produce an opera on the international multiformat hit for the 2011 season at the Milan opera house. The composer is currently artistic director of the Arena in Verona."

[h/t Breitbart]

Hm. This gives me an idea.

"Health Care Crisis: The Musical!"
Featuring the music of the most famous band from that paradise of socialized medicine, the UK: The Beatles.

Act One:
"I Feel Fine"
"If I Fell"
"I'm Down"

Act Two:
"Doctor Robert"
"Misery"
"Hey St. Jude's"

Act Three:
"I'm Only Sleeping"
"When I'm 64"
"The End"

You wake up in the morning and here comes another day of you and a blank screen and the hope that whatever you manage to put on it will actually be of some use to somebody.

Yawn. Better luck tomorrow.

P.S. You didn't ask, but if'n I were you, I'd disable anonymous comments.

Yawn...Anonymous has SO much character and virtue that he/she won't even sign the post. Now that is impressive! (Sarcasm, just in case you are not clear on that) If you have children I hope that you are NOT leading by example. Just a little note if you are unwilling to sign your name to something...it probably means you shouldn't write/say something. Maybe you were never taught "if you don't have something nice (or constructive, thought provoking, funny etc...)to say, don't say anything" consider this your lesson.
Oh by the way my name is Lisa Counts...that's
L-I-S-A C-O-U-N-T-S (see how that works?)
