Bass cleft

Mercedes and Sid Bass, the A-list society and philanthropy couple who in 2006 gave the Met $25 million dollars—the largest single unrestricted gift paid at one time from an individual in the company’s then 123-year history—announced their divorce yesterday, ending 23 years of marriage.

Readers of New York Social Diary (as who among is not?) saw this one coming. According to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, Mr. Bass and Mrs. Bass say they “continue to love each other and remain good friends,” though at this writing it is not clear who will get custody of Yo-Yo Ma.

    One day, Yo-Yo Ma and Renee Fleming will join forces and bring about the downfall of America. Mark my words. Their power shall be unrivaled.

    Ooops, there is an error -- the LA Phil concert with Florez was
    2010; this season is was Rhapsody in Blue with Herbie Hancock.
    Glad I caught the 2010 one!
    Sorry about that, Mes Amis.
