THE PARTNERSHIP: Brecht, Weill, Three Women, and Germany on the Brink by Pamela Katz, Jan 2015

Posted on 12/28/14 at 06:44 pm in response to How the SPCO wants to reinvent the modern chamber orchestra

The musicians who left knew that they had targets on their backs and decided they had better take the buyout offer. I seriously doubt that the Board and the big donors and the golden boys and girls experienced the same kind of "pain" felt by those thrown under the bus. It is now the SPCO in name only.

First the military, and now Congress. So basically he's never been in the "real" workforce before. I am so glad that I am now out of his district.

It looks as if the MN Opera has no intention of producing works pre-1800 except for Mozart. Supposedly there was a Handel in the works but . . .? I understand that there is a firm commitment to new and/or contemporary works, but there are plenty of gorgeous and practically unknown operatic works pre-1800 which could benefit from the MN Opera's innovative staging and the local dance talent. Remember "Orpheus and Eurydice" from a few years ago? That was gorgeous. I guess the gap will have...

"Many, if not more billionaires and unions who favor the left" - oh really? Can you provide numbers? And there are "many, if not more" corporations than unions - who do they give to, now that they are legally human?

Posted on 04/25/14 at 06:35 pm in response to From nixing ERA to opposing equal pay, Phyllis Schlafly's still at it

She was able to put herself through Washington University while working fulltime - this was during WWII, so a well-paying job in a factory (I believe) was available because there were no men. Had she tried to do this five years before or five years after, she wouldn't have been able to do this. She got a masters at Harvard and was able to do so because - again - the men were all at war and the program needed students. This is not to say that she wasn't qualified and doesn't diminish her...

For your thoughtful coverage throughout. And for your continuing spotlight on all that is going on - I know so much more about the many fantastic arts offerings in Minnesota now.

And Minnpost (incl. Pamela Espeland) for your even-handed and responsible coverage of this unprecedented situation. I am only one of many who became sustainers because of your work.

For the same number of people is not dealing with the issue of density. Teardowns and increasing density are both housing issues, but they are not the same issue.

Posted on 03/03/14 at 09:51 am in response to A minimum-wage increase is unnecessary

Where some well-connected people have become billionaires (and are busy sending their money outside the country), while meanwhile pensions and job opportunities are tanking.

We certainly wouldn't want that for the US, would we? Oh wait - that's our problem too!!

I would be willing to bet that the author, coming from the Soviet Union, was fairly well-educated. If so, in spite of the possible language barrier), he already had more of an advantage than many citizens, for whom...
