Beware of Gilbert and Sullivan


Jewish date:  3 Ṭeveth 5770 (Parashath Wayyiggash).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  Cathode-Ray Tube Day, Games Day, International Human Solidarity Day.

Worthy cause of the day:  “ Political Action: Block the bill until it's fixed”.

Today’s news and commentary:

Today’s weird thing, submitted by Barry, is an Italian site with four Gilbert and Sullivan operas as audio files:  H.M.S. Pinafore, The Mikado, The Pirates of Penzance, and Trial by Jury.  Gilbert and Sullivan are well known for creating enjoyably weird operas, and I am honored to help bring these operas to my readers.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
