My sources

Annie Get your Gun (source Wikipedia)
The title of my blog is ”What Comes Naturally”, and I have acknowledged indebtedness to Stanley Fish whose book Doing What Comes Naturally has been an inspiration and a challenge both in my literary research and in my basic convictions about life.

However, how could I forget - the poetic and expressive phrase ”what comes naturally” belongs also, and perhaps even more properly, to the musical genre. How could I forget Annie Get Your Gun (1946) by Irving Berlin about the sharpshooter Annie Oakley, a muscial play which was run on Broadway for over 1000 nights. Listen to

the Baylor Theatre production from 2007 in ”Doin’ what comes Naturally”
