PANNING PAVAROTTI

Regarding Pavarotti, it's about time someone deflated that "pompous balloon's" false image. Such Bernheimer phrases as "heroic tenorial derriere," "post-concert din-din," "Pavarotti's favorite time-beater," and "Dio mio" were most effective touches to put the performance in proper perspective.
