Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Plus Ça Change …

We’re leaving a performance of La Traviata, and the psychologist turns to me and says,

Sorry, that opera was too much like my work.”
Really?” I ask, “Do you have a lot of clients dying of tuberculosis?
No,” she responds, “AIDS, Hepatitis-C, and cancer.”
Too much drama, too much anguish, and way too much whining.” she continues.
But they whine so much more melodically in the opera.” is all I can respond.
