The Corner

The one and only.

No Escape


Try as I will, politics keeps intruding.

We just got to this bit in the libretto:

Bill:  I have traveled round
    All the lands subject to you,
    And have armed a thousand
    Loyal men in your defense.
    Come! Let Hillary’s standard
    Be unfurled at last!
    Avenging both your people’s wrongs
    And your own indignities!

Except of course that it’s not Bill addressing Hill, but Orombello (Pavarotti) addressing Beatrice (Sutherland).
