Something else to be thankful for: Although Tiffany and Jennifer have caught the flu this week, I haven't gotten sick, so far. Dressing rooms tend to be jumping with germs, and usually I'm good for one bout of honking and slushing about in the course of the run. But, so far, so good.

Stephen Votier reports in Nature that Great Skua (Stercorarius skua) have been making up the decline in their food supply, largely fishing by-catch, by shifting to higher rates of predation on other seabirds. John Nielsen files a story for "All Things Considered", including a telephone interview of Votier. (Abstract of the Nature article is here.)

We opened the show last night to a full house of friendly faces. I came home and emptied the sink of a week's worth of breakfast dishes so that I could draw water for my opening-night flowers.

Leta says that the best acting she's ever seen me do is when I profess enthusiasm for the prospect of being in the film version of Cats. She may be right: when I was in New York about five years ago, I stopped in the street of Sixth Avenue to take a blurry photograph of the Winter Garden, dark after That Show had closed.
