(i) Another poll-result. We've already noted that we could spend the summer traveling between 5 different music festivals honoring Jussi, at least if we're willing to stay in Sweden and Norway during July and August. But in the throes of winter last January, opera's biggest on-line discussion group took on the question: "What singer do you go to, when you're in a blue mood and want to be cheered up?" The discussion group was Opera-L, and over 100 members chose to compare opinions on that question, generating the longest discussion of any topic that had been seen in years.
