Metropolitan Opera Grande Diva Licia Albanese will turn 101 next month. She appeared with Mario in the 1955 Warner Bros movie Serenade. In 1995 she and I were both in Philadelphia to attend the annual Mario Lanza Ball, where she performed a stellar, impromptu rendering of Star-Spangled Banner. A day prior to the Ball I recorded this interview with her. My thanks to Gregster for uploading and matching pics to audio:

I've been reading Objectivism literature and listened to Objectivist courses for ten years now. I know now that I never could be an Objectivist, because there are issues.

The ignorant, irrational, evil Christians of Western Civilization today often say, with disarming simplicity: "Teach the controversy." On August 1st, 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush said: "Both sides should be properly taught" so "people can understand what the debate is about."

D-Day and Enlightenment Values
June 6, 2014 – My late Uncle “Boots” Van Pelt was almost killed 70 years ago. He went ashore on Omaha Beach with the 29th Infantry Division on D-Day. After the initial troop landings, he was found and thought dead, but he roused as they were putting him into a body bag.

Evgeny Kissin is the only musician among his pre-eminent contemporaries not only prepared *not* to go along with Political Correctness and its capitulation to Islamofilth (for capitulation in OrgOism, see weasel-worders who talk about "Islamism" as distinct from Islam), but brave enough to challenge it openly:
