I notice that I have used the word "nice" at least once every month since I started. Is this a lack of imagination or a case of damning with faint praise?
I was getting ready to go out when I noticed that the recent Figaro from the Royal Opera was on television. It was very nice--there I go again--the second time, too, except the filming for television virtually edited out the comprimario servants who had made the production so interesting. In closeup Gerald Finley frowned a lot.
