Today in traffic signs

PharmaDouche out douches himself....

Kentucky, Child Rape, Christianist Pastor... Goes together like "soup and sandwich".

Another example of fine Christina morals and an example to us all of the benefits of home schooling our young. While this is not surprising, I am still sickened by these creatures.

From JoeMyGod:

Yet another scandal for one of TLC’s Christian reality shows. NBC News reports: The patriarch of a family featured on the TLC reality television show “The Willis Family” was arrested Friday and charged with rape of a child stemming from an alleged sexual encounter around 12 years ago, authorities said.

This evening's musical interlude... Bella Figlia Dell'amore from Verdi's Rigoletto

I just love lyric opera. I know very little about it but I do love the music. I particularly enjoy the way that the voices and orchestra blend so beautifully together to make so many sounds so perfect together. I thought I'd share some of my favorite pieces with you. 

Tonight please enjoy the quartet "Bella Figlia Dell'Amore" from the final act of Giuseppe Verdi's tragedy "Rigoletto". The quartet is sung by Dame Joan Sutherland (my favorite female opera singer) who, by the way is waaayyy too old for this part as 17-ish year old Gilda Rigoletto's daughter, but I digress, Luciano Pavarotti as the Duke in disguise, Leo Nucci as Rigoletto, and Isola Jones as Maddalena. Of special note is that Ms. Jones bodice deserves an award for keeping her heaving breasts from popping right out of that outfit.
