    Symphony orchestra

    This is horrific really, sad state of affairs when politicians push the arts around the globe ...

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    I agree CT, it was really a big mistake making the orchestra tour. I bet at the end they wished they had not done so.
