Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Thank You

I just watched Les Miserables as performed by students at our school.  Les Miz is... hard.  Jean Valjean is basically unsingable.  Almost every major role has a song that stretches their range to the very limit.

And all I can say is: Damn.  It was the students who cajoled the drama director to do the play; they took it upon themselves to do the best and most difficult musicals out there.

And they pulled it off.

I had goosebumps.
