what the ...?
President Arrives in Alabama, Briefed on Hurricane Katrina
We've got a lot of rebuilding to do. First, we're going to save lives and stabilize the situation. And then we're going to help these communities rebuild. The good news is -- and it's hard for some to see it now -- that out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic Gulf Coast, like it was before. Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott's house -- he's lost his entire house -- there's going to be a fantastic house. And I'm looking forward to sitting on the porch. (Laughter.) ... via eschaton

so. this friday came quickly. must have been a busy week. the seniors have been working with calvino's if on a winter's night a traveller ... and they've taken a shot at the villanelle ... sophs are slogging through miller's the crucible ... not my most favorite piece ... but it has its moments ... and is not completely unrelated to our contemporary moment

one quickly realized hoot from the new window ... a clear view of Venus ... winking at me just above sunset ... but i'm too lazy to attempt a photo

window guys came today ...

... not much of a sight ... but more a sight than i've ever seen through this window ... at least i'll get the sunset without running back to the bedroom ... such luxury ... on a day i'm thinking much about the luck of some and the suffering of many ... prayers for the southland

dylan at the gaslight 1962 is a humble little disc ... but a worthy entry ... very good sound quality ... that date alone in the title reminds me how young he was .... and then you hear him belting out 'hard rain' like he'd been around forever ... knowing everything all along ... kennedy was still around too, but he didn't know so much ... well ... i'm just a sucker for 'the cuckoo bird' ever since i heard clarence ashley do it ('the coo coo bird') on harry smith's anthology ... and 21 year old dylan digs deep to find his roughest old inner mountainman ... straight from the holler ...
