Letter To PBS From Jane Austen Viewing Club Member About Prokofiev's Peter And Wolf And Humperdinck's Hansel And Gretel: Please Sirs, Not Too Much!





















Dear PBS,

Good morning.

Don't any of you have children or spouses or grandparents or partners who have to work in the mornings? Back to back, edgy screenings of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf and Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel are, well, you know, too much -- and too late for us workers and caregivers.

Faithfully,

Pan Cogito
Lagging Member of the Jane Austen Viewing Club

Thank you very much for the comment and the compliment!

I just looked at your beautiful pictures -- from two days ago -- of La serra del Montsant, near Catalonia, Spain!

They brought back memories of a visit to the Catalonian National Park at the top of the funicular- ride past the grotto and church that a friend and I took a few weeks after Ronald Reagan defeated Carter in the autumn of 1980.

Thanks again.
