Subject: Politically Incorrect "Nixon"

Worthy of a smile. People have posted objections to casting of the current Houston 
Opera production of "Nixon in China," upset that the roles for non-Caucasians 
(including the entire chorus?) were not filled by Asian-Americans. What about 
those paunchy Italian guys with beards and phoney uniforms singing Pinkerton (in 
Italian!). I've always found Fasolt and Fafner absurdly portrayed by medium-sized 
white guys wearing platform shoes and bulky outfits - an insult to real giants
