Musical Interlude

Enjoy this palate cleanser: CONCERTO op. 99 (complete) by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895-1968): Flavio Sala, guitar:


About composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco:
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco was one of the most promising Italian composers of his generation. A talented musician, he befriended other large musical figures like Ildebrando Pizzetti and Alfredo Casella, who became one of his closest friends; at least until the enforcement of anti-Jewish laws in Fascist Italy, which forced Castelnuovo to flee to the USA, where he worked as a film composer and teacher, instructing no less than film music superstars Henry Mancini, Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams.
Castelnuovo-Tedesdo also mentored George Duning, a film and television music composer of some note. For example, George Duning was the composer of the theme music for the 1955 film Picnic and the theme song for the television series The Big Valley.

Lies, Lies, Lies!

On The Other Hand...

The Law of Unintended Consequences in play? 

The first signs of the impact of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s absence may come in a flurry of election-related disputes expected to reach the Supreme Court on an emergency basis in the coming weeks. Until Friday, Chief Justice John Roberts or other justices had the power to issue or deny emergency relief by joining with the court’s four liberals. It didn’t happen often, but it did sometimes happen. 
With the court shorthanded for the time being, the court’s three remaining Democratic appointees would now need two Republican-appointed colleagues to take emergency action. 
With scores of court challenges underway across the country seeking or opposing coronavirus-related changes to voting procedures, the change in the ideological balance of the high court could affect the outcome of such fights — even if a new justice doesn’t take the bench until after the election....

I admit it.  I'm smiling at the possible irony.

RBG's Own Words

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's words — in 2016...

Another flashback — again, from 2016 (hat tip to Mike's America)...

As Mike's America opined on September 19, 2020:
Like Obama, Trump has the duty under the Constitution to appoint a successor. The Senate has the power to confirm.


(1) ‘That’s a promise’: Actor Russ Tamblyn says ‘there will be a war’ if ‘you dare try and replace’ RBG

2) The left threatens death, destruction, and fire if President Trump dares nominate a replacement for RBG on SCOTUS.

Comment Of The Day

September 16, 2020 comment made by Baysider at GeeeZ on Z's excellent post "WHY TRUMP DOES BETTER… look at the comparisons!": 

...De Blasio says, with all the people leaving NYC, that we need to raise taxes on the rich AND “we have to redistribute income.” How about YOURS, your honor? He just announced he’d furlough his salary, but I suspect it’s a rebound from the terrible optics of “redistributing income.” To quote from his Wikipedia page: he did “a brief stint as a campaign manager for Charles Rangel and Hillary Clinton …[and] started his career as an elected official on the New York City Council. So your career never took you into the real world of working for a living. 

 Plus, he said restaurants would continue to be closed for indoor dining (only very reduced sidewalk dining), because dining out was “an activity for middle- and upper-income New Yorkers.” Really? Are these higher income folks the ones who 1) shop for the menu, 2) deliver food and supplies, 3) cook the food 4) serve the food, 5) bus the dishes, 6) wash the dishes, 7) clean up the restaurant, 8) ferry diners to the restaurant, 9) service the equipment, and 10) grow the food in the first place? CLUELESS!! 

We hear stories of people who stayed not working because the combined state and federal unemployment benefit (of which I received ZERO) was more than their salary. Then I ran into one. My locksmith had to furlough his helper in April. When he could work again and asked him to come back to work, he did not want to – and didn’t. It was because he made a lot more in gov’t $$$....

If you have time, it is worth your time to see why Z stated that Trump does better. Read Z's post HERE.

Higher Education And Cancel Culture

If you care about the education of your children, your grandchildren, and your nieces and nephews; if you attend secondary school or later; or if you work in the field of education, then make time to watch this short video (11:32):


Related reading: Academics Are Really, Really Worried About Their Freedom: Some fear for their career because they don’t believe progressive orthodoxies by John McWhorter, Ph.D., contributing writer and The Atlantic, professor of linguistics at Columbia University, and author of numerous books.  The last paragraph of the above article (emphases mine):
Overall I found it alarming how many of the letters sound as if they were written from Stalinist Russia or Maoist China. A history professor reports that at his school, the administration is seriously considering setting up an anonymous reporting system for students and professors to report “bias” that they have perceived. One professor committed the sin of “privileging the white male perspective” in giving a lecture on the philosophy of one of the Founding Fathers, even though Frederick Douglass sang that Founder’s praises. The administration tried to make him sit in a “listening circle,” in which his job was to stay silent while students explained how he had hurt them—in other words, a 21st-century-American version of a struggle session straight out of the Cultural Revolution.

Never Forget!

Nineteen years ago, but seems like yesterday for some of us...

The flight paths of the 9/11 hijacked planes

Adagio For Strings, Op. 11, sound track from a recording conducted by Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990):

From the YouTube blurb:
A slideshow tribute to the events of September 11, 2001. Focus is on people, their connection with the towers, past and present, and not simply a play by play of news footage. Communicating the full range of expression from terror to sacrifice, compassion, and sacrifice...as well as the ways in which people responded as friends, neighbors and as Americans. Set to Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings, which was played at Ground Zero during the memorial service the same week as the tragedy.

Graphic by Stogie:

Let us fervently hope that the Middle East peace brokered by the Trump Administration endures for at least a few years!  "Trust, but verify!"

Americans: A Good And Generous People

Michelle Minor and her sons [photo credit]

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A desk is not something normally on a back-to-school shopping list. But with so many families doing virtual learning, it has become a much-needed item. 

Gwinnett County mother Michelle Minor and her sons realized this and got to work. 

From her suburban garage and driveway, Michelle Minor and her sons are cranking out as many wooden desks as time allows. 


The orders have come pouring in. Some families are paying for them. Others are donating, so families in need can have one built. 

“I’ve probably got about 30-40 desks that I need to make, and I just emailed this out last Wednesday,” Minor said. 

Minor does [all this] in between driving a Gwinnett County school bus. Her older son Skylar uses his math skills to help his mom out while third grader Chase does what he can too....

A fundraiser page is HERE.

I am sick and tired beyond words of the constant drumming that we Americans are terrible people.

We.  Are.  Not.

Overall Americans are a good and generous people!
