It's been a quiet week. The Whippets defeat the Holdingford Bulls in the rain on another long fly ball from Wayne Tommerdahl, Father Emil returns to Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility, garage sale season begins, and the Women's Bible Study Group goes skinny-dipping.
Also worth noting is that this weeks news comes from a performance at the Ravinia Music Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, which I've written about several times, most notably here. I worked at Ravinia for a couple summers, and it was a joy. The festival, which is the summer home of the Chicago Symphony, but also cover folk music, rock, jazz, chamber music, opera, theater, and dance, have grounds that are walking distance from where I grew up, and on a really clear night, you could sometimes hear the music off in the distance. It was a long way -- a mile-and-a-half, maybe -- along Green Bay Road, but much shorter if you cut through Turnbull Woods, which I did on occasion. (Going to a concert, or to work backstage once in a while -- not in the dark afterwards. You don't want to be caught by witches or gremlins, of course.)
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
