An open letter to the ad people for Opera Southwest.

OK, I'm not in advertising, and so I have no evidence to support this. But when you're selecting a picture to advertise your productions, it seems to me that, unless that's actually the effect you're trying to get, you don't necessarily want to use a picture that makes a beautiful woman look like a drag queen.

This is just a theory, and I will freely admit that I could be wrong.

Thank you for your time.

It's opera; they do that. At least she doesn't have one of those horned helmets on her head.

Actually, the Trophy Wife is an operatically-trained spinto soprano, and has sung with that very company.

Doesn't mean that their ad campaign doesn't need some help.

Ugh! I was just about to post on that exact topic and then you beat me to it.

By the way, next time you link to a beautiful woman, can you link to a more beautiful one, please?
