This is probably my favorite full symphony composition of all time. And that’s saying something from a lady who loves her some Wolfgang Amadeus (yeah yeah and props to Ludwig Van). In Closing: some more NSA and privacy follies; student loans; crude; illustration of double standard; embarrassing coincidence; lost Sherlock Holmes story; malls have always been […]
In closing: enigma; happily ever after; one size fits all; do I still have the right to party?; a few choice words on inequality and trade agreements and related issues; please add “or whatever”.
There’s been quite a lot of talk about, between, and across those that think vaccinations are wonderful lifesaving technology, and those that don’t. And for those who are saying “What’s the big deal?

In Closing: Some NSA and CIA stuff; um yeah, what were you saying about how secure biometrics are?; plastic diamonds; on income and wealth inequality; fallacies; Dave is the only guy out […]
In Closing: Pardon me; the Music Man; no new ideas; dangerous jobs; a pretty cool boat; a family affair; on hacking; ride-bys; affordable; I thought this would happen; and weird museums.
In Closing: Reading about the people justifying torture can seem like they are torturing the truth; a few police brutality and racism items; common sense may not be common; TPP; she can’t be trusted to make a decision regarding having a baby, but she can somehow be trusted with a baby.
