Mozart, the most merciless of composers in exposing the true abilities and musical depth of his interpreters, is not for the timid of heart. Courage and resource must equip every would-be Mozartean--but especially when this master's music is taken out of doors.
Tuesday nights at Hollywood Bowl tend to be high-energy affairs, the beginning of a new week usually infecting the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its loyal subscribers with optimism and good cheer. Not this week, when the final Tuesday concert of the 1993 summer season found both the resident orchestra and its apparently distracted audience (reportedly numbering 10,213) a little out of sorts.

President Obama did not meet with Egypt's Mohamed Morsi or Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu - the leaders of America's two closest Middle East partners - when he was in New York last week to speak to the United Nations General Assembly. There are sound foreign policy and political reasons why. Rarely have relations between Washington and these nations been more out of whack. The relationships with both are too big to fail.

It was the better mousetrap. From Silicon Valley to the White House, Solyndra's unique solar panels left everyone gasping for a piece of the action. Analysts gushed over the cylindrical design, so much more exciting than the dull, flat panels coming out of China. Company executives promised huge revenue, supporting thousands of permanent jobs, while a stream of state and federal politicians toured the Fremont plant, basking in what felt like the glow of the future. Investors, convinced that Solyndra was the big one, the harbinger of a solar boom, poured more than $1 billion into the company, with the U.S. government guaranteeing 50% more in loans.

"GET OVER IT," urged the posting on an online bulletin board, "you are in America act like an American!!" The anger was directed at Somalian immigrants who have roiled this city by declaring certain jobs offensive to their Muslim faith. Many Somalian cabdrivers -- who dominate the airport taxi business -- refuse to transport passengers carrying alcohol. Some Somalian cashiers will not handle pork products; instead, they've begun asking customers to scan their own bacon.
