I wouldn't disagree that America has been considerably dumbed down, culturally.  But it is 
also a fact that cuntural and entertainment tastes simply change over time.  Opera has been 
"niche" entertainment - and a very small niche at that - for quite some time.  With the 
internet, cell phones, and other forms of electronic media, which inculcate short attention 
spans and cater to the shallower but more accessible forms of pop entertainment, opera will 
continue to get nichier.  That is reality.  Learn to live with it.
