In their latest episode, Mona and Jay talk about the scourge of widespread and chronic unemployment; the withdrawal of Condoleezza Rice from a commencement date; the Benghazi investigation; and other weighty matters. They also discuss the joys of language. Mona has been interested to learn lately that – ta-da! – saturated fats are good for you. Or at least not harmful. She is also faced, as a cello student, with learning a new clef. For her, that has been like castor oil, so far.
The exit music is a cello piece: the (exciting) finale of Tchaikovsky’s “Rococo” Variations, played by Leonard Rose and the Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Eugene Ormandy.
