I heard the minx remark...

I stumbled on a radio broadcast of Iolanthe last night. The performers were much more operatic than the production I was part of; I'm biased I'm sure, but I liked our version better. If nothing else, even though I knew the words I couldn't always make them out - though some of that may be signal quality in my lame clock radio as well.

On a tangential note, low-and-behold the little motto for Nov. 15th in my planner brings back memories: a quote from a Robert Ferdinand Wagner Jr. saying
When in danger, ponder. When in trouble, delegate. When in doubt, mumble.

the latter third, of course, being the motto of the Randal Schwarz School of Broadcasting. Now there's a portion of the SFFC clan I've almost completely lost touch with - the old guard. Or the old old guard, I suppose, if you want to date things from the Zoo days, which probably makes more sense to the current constituency.

Gah, trying to remember who fits where and with whom in that history makes me sympthize with Bilbo when he talked about feeling stretched. I really should make good on my threats and finish writing it all down.
