@Blast8 Good morning, Frankie. We had friends over for hand roll sushi and singing last night. Kids like theirs pre-rolled, and I oblige. We feasted on uni, ika, chutoro, maguro, hirame, tai, hamachi, shake, kanpachi, kaibashira and ikura. Moved on to charcuterie and cheese, mochi ice cream, bon bons and gelato. Then just four of us stayed up to midnight singing everything from Byrd and Palestrina to Thompson Alleluia and closed with Faure Requiem with a Ozawa Seiji recording in the background. (I don’t have an orchestra!) Great time! Today, I clean wine glasses and chill. Wish you were here, Frankie!

Horatio, the ever-learned scholar, has a difficult time believing in Hamlet’s ghost, and this sort of false certainty rings true in our heavily material, atheist, “rational” culture.

And though it applies to all of us - this tendency we all have to cling to our ideas of true and false, right and wrong, fact and fiction - I see the above quote far more relevant to the media and the far left in their continuous demand to make every realm of life political: the arts, comedy, family, love, nature, learning, etc, to insist they have it correct, that their “philosophy” is all there is or at least ...
