My own p.o.v.? Shading toward midnight melancholic,after a week's worth of internet and e-mail crashes, and printing backlogsoccasioned by inks not taking kindly to being globally warmed. And sourgrapes, watching everyone starting to take off, while we're still puttingtogether all this information about where to take off to.I've been grumbling ever since the first ten days of June about nothaving had time for LuminaTo. So am I now getting ready to drop everythingthe first ten days next June (having saved up for it from now tillthen)? Not really very likely. Not with a July issue to put to bed, kids stillin school, and, yikes! a tidal wave of summer musical events to process -almost as many as the whole rest of the year. Did I mention that?I'm quite willing to accept that for as long as Toronto keeps"world-class" in its lexicon of cures for self-loathing, we'll continue tobow in slack-jawed deference to the proposers of cultural megaprojectspitched to "the world" as the cure for what ails us (all the while, of course,assuming that ail we do).What I can't swallow is the misgiving that saying yes to LuminaTOwill inevitably lead to taking money away from what I would call communityarts - from things like the neighbourhood Celebrate Toronto streetfestivals, or from many of the community-based smaller festivals that cramthis issue's pages, or from relatively spontaneous cultural uprisings likeNuit Blanche, or from the regular season's lovingly curated series whichare food for our home-town souls during the year's grind.Community arts. There's a "world class" notion.David PerlmanCBC Radio Two help - Reader RequestA number of my friends and I are very concerned about the changesmade back in March to cbc radio two. We feel that the evening programmescuts, and also the cuts to other quality programmes were illadvised, and these cuts are alienating the primary audience for classicalprogramming. Additionally the new programmes are being pushed byusing commercial like promos that are extremely annoying to this type ofaudience.You can read a couple of web sites that have been set up tosend a petition to the cbc management etc. If you feel that you agreewith this, is there any way you could list these websites, or is there anyother way that our concerns can be published or could you could help inany other way? I think most people who get WholeNote would beinterested in preserving classical music broadcasting in the evening.Here are the web sites:www and http://cbcradiotwoandme.blogspot.comBrian AveryWHO'S READING WHOLENOTE?award-winningSoulpepper TheatreCompany.LOG ON TO WIN DINNER & THEATRE TICKETS!www.thewholenote.comWHOLENOTE.
