Ms.CRANKY is a nice enough person who gets upset when people are thoughtless. That's what she writes about. Ms.CRANKY feels that it's real easy to have the world humming along kindly and even (dare she say) sweetly. You just have to use common sense and say --- "Would I want someone to swing a long pointy umbrella in my face"?
Ms. CRANKY'S HAT, well, one of them

The Pope comes to America and gets an Italian entertainer, not an Italian-American entertainer --- how come???
Ms. Cranky finds it ironic, though she understands somewhat,
that Pope Francis for his first visit to the United States, will be serenaded
while In Philadelphia by Andréa Bocelli who is from Italy, maybe a few blocks
away, should they have ‘blocks’ in Italy.
There are tons of great singers, opera and otherwise, in
Philadelphia. There is the Academy of
Music which housed an annual Pavarotti Competition for many years; there is a
bar-restaurant called Victor’s Café in Philadelphia which grows opera
Okay, Mr. Bocelli happens to be at a conference in
Philadelphia at the same time, but, ‘hello’ --- the dear Pope could hear him
any time --- in his own backyard (if they have back yards at the Vatican???) But, come on here, Cranky’s sure Andrea would
be very glad to just ‘pop by’ anytime --- ‘when in Rome.’
Ms. Cranky, though trying hard to be understanding, can’t
help but think of all the wonderful American singers whose lives would be
changed forever with the experience of singing for the Pope.
But, per usual, no one has asked Ms. Cranky’s opinion.
Have a great day, a
lovely and safe Pope visit, a wonderful Jewish holiday.
