I scan through the opera-l postings rather rapidly, but always stop to
read anything which grabs my attention, as did:

> > Given that he has had a long and illustrious career, he has every
> > right to be fading.

This is truly a great line!  And it certainly grabbed my attention.
However, in the comments which followed, offered by Hubert Partl, not once
was I given any indication as to whose "long and illustrious career" gave
him "every right to be fading."

Professor Partl proceeded to speak of similar situations, typical of the
Viennese audiences -- which I know and so well love -- such as his "Bravo
... but you should have heard him ten years ago" story.  But nowhere was I
able to learn of whom the original correspondent spoke when he so
graciously wrote "... he has every right to be fading."

Ergo my question: "Yes, but who?"

                 Thus spake Chuck (for better or worse)
