Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/05/18

Opera in English is, in the main, just about as sensible as baseball in Italian.”   —   H. L. Mencken

(Said someone who probably never watched a baseball game.  Opera is predominantly written in Italian, but there are operas in other languages.  I’m sure even in English.  Baseball works in just about any language.  You don’t even need words, or even audio, to comprehend baseball, providing you understand the game.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Opera is a magic scene designed to please the eyes and the ears at the expense of understanding.”   — Lord Chesterfield

(Great definition/description, Phil!  It’s probably why I’m not the biggest fan of opera.  I usually don’t have a clue as to what’s going on!)

(Being remembered, and referred to, by a title must be very strange, indeed.) —   YUR
