The City - Mac McAnally




From the farm as a child
I was warned of the wiles of the city
Of that demon disguised
As the dirt in the sky of the city

I was told the proximity warps their minds
'Til they're shooting one another just to pass the time
And we live it appears
Both in spite and in fear of the city

I was constantly told
How our lives were controlled by the city
How they keep us in debt
With the trends that they set it's a pity

How them beautiful people in the magazines
Got the normal ones living beyond their means
And the things that they said
Made me go in my head to the city

Well I learned when I came
That there's some things the same in the city
You're still under the thumb
Of the rich and the young and the pretty

And they weren't much different than we might act
If there was that many of us that closely packed
It's an ancient idea
But it struck me so clear in the city

LA Opera to investigate Placido Domingo over accusations

By JOCELYN GECKER

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two music companies canceled appearances by Placido Domingo and the Los Angeles Opera said Tuesday it would launch an investigation in response to an Associated Press story in which numerous women accused the opera legend of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior spanning decades.

Domingo has been general director of the LA Opera since 2003 and previously served as the company’s artistic director, jobs that gave him the power to cast roles and — his accusers say — make, or break, careers.

Some of the women told the AP that Domingo used his power at the LA company and elsewhere to try to pressure them into sexual relationships, with several saying that he dangled jobs and then sometimes punished them professionally if they refused his advances.

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Orchestra and San Francisco Opera announced they would cancel upcoming performances featuring the star, regarded as one of the greatest opera singers of all time.
