The Power of Context

My esteemed blogger colleague Opera Chic recently wrote about cutie-pie tenor Michael Fabiano's (who I still regret not giving a big squeezy hug goodbye.) recent experience at La Scala. Don't forget to read the comments. And note that the commenter's name appears at the bottom of the comment, not at the top. OC's intent appears to be, "Look! Here's another stupid thing La Scala did!" yet one of the commenters appears to have twisted it into, "He's a poor little boy who needs to learn the ways of the world." Context people, context! Someone else commented about how talented and professional he is. No idea who that could have been. Oops my name is there, haha.
