Leonard Bernstein’s Mass was a spectacular work commissioned for the gala opening of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in  Washington DC in 1971.

Like so much else during that time of upheaval in America, it was not without controversy – indeed it was intended to be provocative. Nowadays we wonder what all the fuss was about.

We conclude our celebration of Leonard Bernstein's Centennial this Thursday with what may yet prove to be his iconic work.

As a nation, we could do a better job at taking time off.

About half of full-time workers recently surveyed by the U.S. Travel Association didn't take all the paid vacation days they earned last year.

More than 700 million vacation days went unused, and we forfeited about 200 million of those days — when vacation benefits didn't roll over. On average, American workers took almost six fewer vacation days than we earned.
