From the Department of WTF?

Aria Serious is simply baffled by the news this morning that the Orange County Register has reassigned their classical music critic, Tim Mangan - the highly intelligent, often funny, excellent writer (who by the way hasn't come down to review us in five or so years *ahem*) from Classical Music Critic to Celebrity Gossip or "People" columnist.

So, another cultural gatekeeper has fallen. And we're crestfallen as he was one of the first stops on the morning jaunt around the blogosphere as we searched for interesting stories.

Tim, we already missed you. Now we'll miss you even more. But perhaps this wouldn't have happened if you made San Diego Opera your regular beat. Who are we kidding; no drunken courtroom brawls here. At least yet.
