Clive: This of course suggests a hip murder mystery in which the clues are Twittered and Flickred and Facebooked, and our digital Holmes.2 must walk the cat backwards. Exhausting and truly through the looking glass, and then Holmes.2 sees the trail heading in a circle until he realizes the killer is the victim and the murder hasn't happened yet in cyberspace. A body without a crime report until the social network learns of the fate (tree-forest-sound?). Can Holmes.2 act in time to keep the killer/victim alive forever in cyberspace? You are the man to write it, CT. Cheers.

Thanks for the ping.
The opera, "Calling," is taken from the book "A Mother's Essays from Ground Zero," written by Wickham Boyle. I had never heard of it, but I looked it up on Amazon. Evidently she is the mother of a child whose school was only blocks away from Ground Zero...
Good show tonight. Batchelor is another American completely smitten by Sarah Palin.
