Thank you so much for linking to this, ma'am!

So far the response which has come my way to the piece has been very polite. I think people, in the Internet era, are starting to twig to the fact that Wagner could have been as obviously saintly as Francis of Assisi, and still the PC carpetbaggers in academe and tabloid journalism would have tried to destroy his reputation. Why? Because ultimately the reputation of any Dead White Elitist Male with immense artistic talent has to be destroyed.

All of us have lived a life tainted in some way or another, some by mildly reproachful actions and other's more so......However I have enjoyed many hours of pleasure listening to Wagner's music and that is all I have to say on the topic.
