"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr
I applaud the troops. Such a good job. I just have to wonder if the tea partiers are going to give credit to the Democrat president of the United States. Or will they sweep this under the rug because one of their guys wasn't in office when it happened?
That is interesting. I admit that I'm not enough of an expert on classical music that I could detect a "mistake," but I think I know what he means. The Tchaikovsky--which is a real crowd pleaser that I could listen to again and again--has so many fancy swoops, soars, and pyrotechnics that a good violinist could play something just a little off, something that is not on the page, and it would probably fit right in. Only experts and pro musicians would notice it. But the Beethoven, the various little bits fit so precisely, it's easier to notice when one bit doesn't fit quite right with the bits before and after it. Those Germans. So precise.
Once again, boring gender norms poke through all areas of the ego. Self-reliance, cussing, or "because I study philosophy not literature"? If this is what makes you a dude then we must be in the 1800s.
Nice photo essay though.
