A Couple of Things

I'm actually writing tonight! So, instead of a substantive blog post, here's a couple of interesting links:

  • The latest on Conroygate in the local public schools. The committee has read Beach Music and has recommended that it be allowed in class, but with a warning sticker on the front, alerting parents of the contents. The Board of Education didn't officially act on the recommendation yet, but they appear to be in support. It's a solution that doesn't look to really please anybody. And we all know how kids react when they see "explicit content" warnings do to kids' desire to read something!
  • Alex Zanardi is one of my heroes, for all these reasons. Over the weekend, he picked up another one - finishing fourth in the hand-powered cycle class in the New York Marathon. It was his first marathon and done after one month of training!
That is all . . .

. . . well, except for this: Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are feckless spineless jackasses who don't deserve the continued support of anyone who believes in the rule of law.

OK, that's really all.

While you were passing out links you somehow missed my link about Zampa ... you know ... that music you're supposed to be practicing.

Then again, I did a follow-up last night that dissects the difficult parts of the music that some of us have been practicing. :-)
