Admittedly, my usual response to anything labeled global is not positive. But this was amazing. Thank you for posting a little brightness on an otherwise bleak morning.

BTW, are the word verifications today descriptions of the bill passed last night? My word: evill

That was a refreshing uplift to my morning! I don't remember you posting it before, but as we've seen, MY recollection of such things doesn't hold much water....

that was great. As one of my teachers likes to say, singing is glorified speech and the undoing of Babel. That is why the throne room is filled with the singing Church.

Loved it.

I used to work near the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica (where the first guy was playing), and for every loony tune, there was also someone who could really, really sing or play. They used to make a pretty decent living at it too.

Oh, and Al, that thought is great. Is that original to your teacher, or was s/he quoting it?

Rachael,

It is his, though I imagine he is drawing on more than a bit of Medieval thought there.
