    Apropos rising singers, I’m going to the Pittsburgh Opera later this month to see Aida, where Latonia Moore (Aida) and Elizabeth Bishop (Amneris) will be performing. Y’all have had great things to say about both of them, so I’m excited. Plus they have former Steeler running back Franco Harris as the champion of champions lol! Life here in the provinces ain’t all bad..
