Re: From the culture desk We count on your expert use of sad-writer evocations to brighten our otherwise dullish days. So thanks for that.

Re: From the culture desk Oi Mendyk - I heard that. You're right, I eschew show tune references. It's strictly Ibsen and Chekhov with me, you should know that. With possibly a bit of Chaucer thrown in for light relief.

Re: From the culture desk Nice work. I knew it couldn't have been Rainford.

From the culture desk Wow -- a show-tune reference in an LR headline. Who gets the credit for this one?
