School Apologizes for Nazi Display by Band

Talk about a collosal error in judgement: The Paris, Texas marching band performed a Nazi anthem and waved Nazi flags during a halftime performance at another high school last Friday. The Nazi piece was part of a ‘Visions of World War II’ program that featured other country’s anthems. Last Friday also marked the start of Rosh Hashana, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.

Oops. I wonder if the band director is a friend of Rush Limbaugh’s?

Dark Side Of The Moon

Silly me, I completely missed the thirtieth anniversary of one of my favorite albums earlier this year.

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don’t be afraid to care
Leave but don’t leave me
Look around and choose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tear you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Run rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last your work is done
Don’t sit down it’s time to start another one
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave…
