My Introduction To Tchaikovsky ... 1966 + 1812

________________________________________________________________________________________________

to a night of fear
With windows howling wind
into your ear
You listen to the spirits
far behind
These things you hear
are too much for your mind

This song from 1966
begins where
The 1812 Overture 
ends.

The Washington Post Today ... No Donald But One Jimmy The K

The home page of WashingtonPost. com
above the fold is all about the Senate's vote
on the fate of health care for all Americans.

President Obama's image is there.
His name appears twice in print
but there is no direct reference
to President Trump.

However, the last words
on this page refer to

Nobel Prize Novelist Predicts Donald Trump ... Ever So Kindly

Word War III

________________________________________________________________________________________________





1. CNN fired Reza Aslan
after using the S-word 
in this tweet.





2. Bill Maher 
was verbally molested
by the media after using
the  N-word.





3. Someone wore 
a t-shirt on national TV
with the words
KILL YOUR MASTERS.

Absolutely no one
seemed to mind.
But it probably helped
sell a lot of t-shirts.
Threats and stones
may break your bones
but single words
will get you fired

Or set the media on fire
Context means nothing
but marketing means everything
