Today is the last night of the Proms , and I will be at the paragraph factory instead of the Royal Albert Hall watching all the carrying-on. (Whom do I kid? If I were there, I'd be standing in Hyde Park or somewhere with the throng that couldn't get tickets.) One of the highlights of the last night is a rousing performance of "Rule, Britannia. " I have heard broadcasts or recordings of various artists, but my favorite is the 2009 performance by mezzo-sporano Sarah Connolly, dressed in a naval uniform of Nelson's era.

Pierce decides this year them should be dinosaurs. Thus, Prom-asaurus is born, where hair gel is banned because it didn't exist during prehistoric times. Blaine, naturally, is heartbroken.

It is no fun being a Catholic woman these days. In fact, it is almost embarrassing. First, the church hierarchy reminded us that those birth control pills in our medicine cabinets are forbidden. Then the bishops repeated their opposition, in various state legislatures, to any legal standing for our gay friends, family members, neighbors or co-workers, somehow casting their opposition as a matter of religious liberty.
