Not enough time this AM to write much about any of these, but here are a few items which I found interesting, worthy of attention, or appalling.
Yes, yes, yes! A great read about a point I’ve tried to get my head around. Tom Nichols articulates it well. I hope his article “goes viral.”
No, no, no! My god are they serious? This would be funny except that it’s not.
Disaster, disaster, disaster. I hope everyone keeps making noise about this. It’s not a done deal yet and it should never be.
Finally, in lieu of the usual bouncing baby goats I like to put at the end of these “coffee link” posts, here’s Michael Webster’s “opera home movie,” Mission Road. The composer sang and played all the parts, conducting himself via a video of himself. Did you follow that? Words by Sam Beckett. This will get its own post later, but I had to share it meanwhile as I’m thinking it over. Magnificent work.
Bye now, off to gym and the greater reaches of Tuesday.
See you round the bend.
