I was listening to an interivew with Burt Bacharach this morning while I was working. Burt was plugging his new album that just came out. It isn't one with a peppering of hits like "Raindrops keep fallin' on my head", but a protest album. He talked about how he is worried for his children, how he is worried about the state of things.
I tend to stay out of the political fray mainly out of frustration, but I am tired of being quiet about how I feel.

My wife was telling me the other day about how her aunt recently travelled to Norway to visit her family's ancestral home. She told my wife that the waterfalls that were on the fjord (norweigan for island i think...) where the old homestead is, are now gone.

Sorry for the depressing post, It was my daughter's frist day of school so all of these things are in the forefront of my thoughts.
