The Economist
As most of you are aware, one of my favorite things to do is read The Economist. There are many reasons for this: our politics are similar, their articles are insightful, and the writing style often includes gems of deliberate understatement.

As to the last, case in point is from the issue of March 21st. There is an article in the Books and Arts section about Handel, who is being honored in April on the 250th anniversary of his death. The second to last paragraph talks about how his operas have had a resurgence recently, in part due to the rise of the countertenor: the modern equivalent of the castrato without the unacceptable job requirements.

Brilliant.

In other news, there is no other news. I did nothing this weekend because I was ill. My annual spring-time chest infection.
