Dear Floria Tosca,

Yikes, rats!  No, I did not attend the ****sweetly-voiced-super-amplified-
giantly-video-screened-super-hyped-media-and-ageing-women-without-children-
darling-pop-crooner-ino-passing-for-the-real-deal-with-only-two-operatic-
roles-at-age-forty-one-which-he-learned-through-much-handholding-
(literally)-one-which-has-been-recorded-during-one-of-Zubin-Mehta's-
busdriving-shifts-stylistic-affinity-be-damned-but-slowly-slowly-slowly-
developing-and-maturing-as-an-artist-and-bona-fide-classical-artist-and-
saved-from-prematurely-blowing-out-his-voice-or-burning-out's****
extravaganza of last week.

But Dyer was fortunate to attend, although by his own admission he has not
heard Cheryl Studer in the flesh since she last set foot in the provincial,
pasturing fields of Boston.  And that was little over twenty years ago.  But
that did not stop the venerable critic from smearing the soprano in print,
just last year.

Hear the difference?
