Knowledge . . .


(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/bill-gates-says-trump-asked-difference-between-hiv-hpv-n875286)
". . . (Bill) Gates . . .  described two meetings in Trump Tower in which he urged the president to become a leader in science and innovation, perhaps by accelerating progress toward an HIV vaccine.
. . . he asked me if vaccines weren't a bad thing because he was considering a commission to look into ill-effects of vaccines,” Gates said. “And somebody, Robert Kennedy Jr., was advising him that vaccines were causing bad things and I said, ‘No, that is a dead end, that would be a bad thing, do not do that.". . . There were laughs and groans from the audience after Gates added: “Both times he wanted to know the difference between HIV and HPV and so I was able to explain that those are things that are rarely confused with each other.”. . . Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection — affecting 79 million Americans, most in their late teens and early 20s —and can cause health problems including cancers. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) weakens the immune system destroying important cells that fight disease and infection and can lead to AIDS. There are vaccines for HPV but no known cure for HIV. . ."

Why . . .


. . . does this President:
a) know so little?
b) intentionally lie?

(https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ap-fact-check-trump-wrong-military-pay-ships-195757263.html)
TRUMP: (to U.S. Naval Academy Graduates) "Going to have new equipment and well-deserved pay raises. We just got you a big pay raise. First time in 10 years. We got you a big pay increase. First time in over 10 years. I fought for you. That was the hardest one to get, but you never had a chance of losing."
THE FACTS: That's not right. U.S. military members have gotten a pay raise every year for the past 10 years and several have been larger than this year's 2.6 percent increase. Pay increases in 2008, 2009 and 2010, for example, were all 3.4 percent or more.
TRUMP: "We have now the lowest number of ships that we've had since World War I, and very soon you're going to get to 355 beautiful ships. 355. That's almost a couple of hundred more ships."
THE FACTS: No it isn't. The Navy now has 283 ships.
And a 355-vessel battle fleet is not going to be achieved "very soon." The Navy plans to reach 355 in the 2050s while saying that could happen in the 2030s if it gets more money and extends the normal life of ships in the fleet.

Yours . . .

. . . alone . . .


The time that's spent
Is yours alone
The choice of how
Or where it's spent
Must be undertaken
With all the seriousness it merits
Like music, good or bad,
Once it's heard
It's gone in the air
Never again to be retrieved

Image . . .


(from https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/saudi-arabian-women-s-rights-activists-arrested-just-weeks-driving-n875771)
". . . Saudi authorities have detained at least six activists, including three of the country's most prominent women's rights campaigners, just weeks before the kingdom is set to lift a ban on women driving, people familiar with the arrests said Friday. . . As activists remain under pressure to keep silent, credit for reforms, such as lifting the ban on women driving, has largely gone to the king's 32-year-old son and heir, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He has relaxed some of the country's ultraconservative rules by allowing women into stadiums to watch sports and bringing back musical concerts and movie theaters. . . Such measures, however, are more about boosting the economy and improving the country's image abroad, and less about promoting personal freedoms. The kingdom remains an absolute monarchy where protests are illegal and where the king and his son oversee all major decision-making. . ."

Punch . . .

. . . diplomacy . . .


(https://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Iranians-to-punch-US-Secretary-of-state-in-mouth-says-Iranian-official-558028)
". . . (U.S. Secretary of State Mike)Pompeo said on Monday Washington would impose new penalties if Tehran did not make sweeping changes, including dropping its nuclear program and pulling out of the Syrian civil war. . . The people of Iran should stand united in the face of this and they will deliver a strong punch to the mouth of the American Secretary of State and anyone who backs them," Ismail Kowsari, the deputy commander of the Sarollah Revolutionary Guards base in Tehran said, according to the Iranian Labour News Agency.

Selfishness . . .



Selfishness sometimes seems
My strongest character trait
Service to the 'master'
Leaves all other duties in the dust

Bittersweet . . .


Bad with the good
That's the way that we should
Take what comes in this life

It isn't the easiest thing that we do
Resigning oneself
Like there's nothing in lieu

But the race must continue
And alternatives few
Or just not quite desirable


Bittersweet

Hard . . .

. . . work . . .


Work hard now
For all the things
You want
Suffer now
For better later
And rest assured
Your efforts are not wasted

Good comes well
To those who wait
And make the right investment
Dreaming idly never
Makes a contribution
Towards a future
For which you yearn


Long Term Short

Inflated . . .

. . . ego?  . . . or pathological liar?. . .


(from his very own Twitter feed. . .)
". . . the most successful first 17 month Administration in U.S. history - by far! Sorry to the Fake News Media and “Haters,” but that’s the way it is!. . . "


(from https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/17/us/politics/fact-check-trump-witch-hunt-successful-presidency.html)
". . . The White House did not respond to a request for evidence backing up Mr. Trump’s claim that he has led “the most successful first 17 month Administration in U.S. history.” But in the past, the president has noted the number of bills he has signed, deregulation and the appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court to prove this point. . . Seventeen months into his presidency, Mr. Trump has signed the second-fewest bills among the last 10 presidents, said Joshua Tauberer, the creator of GovTrack, a web tool for tracking legislation. . ."

A Mess . . .


(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/lawmaker-anger-builds-after-white-house-aide-mocks-dying-mccain-n873406)
". . . one of President Donald Trump's aides, Kelly Sadler. . .  mockingly referred to Sen. John McCain's brain cancer diagnosis during a White House meeting. . . During a White House meeting on Thursday, Sadler reacted to McCain's announcement that he opposes Gina Haspel’s nomination as CIA director because of her involvement in the agency's enhanced interrogation program. . ."


. . . His Orangeness should have received the same furor a long time ago.  If he had, maybe we wouldn’t be in this mess now!

I'm Dreaming . . .

. . . of a quality manual when I should be getting some rest. The visions include no sugarplums but do have a lot of copying and pasting, the bureaucracy fighting nobly to prevent substantial sleep. Flowers bloom and birds sing as the refuse trucks whine in the dawn and my fitful nap continues. But better things lie ahead with good friends and family in nice places where foamy waves lap at the sandy coast and blue skies meet the aqua expanse in my (nearer than I think) future . . . and music. . .

Dear . . .

. . . media outlet, . . .
. . . writing to let you know that Baltimore's own OHO will be releasing their latest album, following 2008's Bricolage, entitled GAZEBO.  The collection is chock-full of original, prog, folk, pop, rock, jazz-inflected joy from Jay Graboski, David Reeve,  Ray Jozwiak (with Bill Pratt's impeccable engineering and production) featuring contributions from a host of local and regional talent including T. Craig Considine,  P. Daly German,  Lisa Griffee,  David Hughes, Mark O’Connor and  Bill Phelan, to name just a few.  The songs run the emotional, topical and stylistic gamut from A to Z and beyond, beginning with the opener, Ring In The Rightness- a positivity anthem for today, and including fusion instrumental Sought of Despond, multiple rockers and shakers, swampy Nawrlins, a touching ballad and much more.

Contact me if you'd like an advanced music sample (now) or a physical copy (available soon).
Looking forward to your hearing our music and to our hearing from you soon.

Writing . . .

I find that these days, I love writing. Writing just about anything, with possibly my favoriite - writing music.  I don't necessarily mean transcribing, or writing down the notes (although I do enjoy that TOO), but I mean composing, working through melodies, chord progressions and many times, lyrics. Somewhere in the mid 80s, I began a creative, yet academic, exercise of writing as many songs as I could.  Being inspired by much of the good pop music of the time, and much encouragement from budding singer-songwriter communities, I was averaging one new song per month.  Maybe no record output, but very satisfactory to me for my own purposes.  Now, in my attempt to capture some old demos (from cassette tapes) to digital, I am discovering many nice memories from the past.

This tune was written purposely to utilize the romantic, simple, trite, english of tin-pan alley plus, expanding my production chops, I decided to perform it in a doo-wop style singing multiple vocal parts acapella.

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”
— Victor Hugo

"One good thing about music: when it hits you, you feel no pain."
– Bob Marley

"I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me, like food or water."
– Ray Charles

"Music is a world within itself, it is a language we all understand."
– Stevie Wonder

"When you hear music, after it's over, it's gone in the air. You can never capture it again."
-Eric Dolphy

"I say, play your own way. Don't play what the public want - you play what you want and let the public pick up on what you doing - even if it does take them fifteen, twenty years."
-Thelonious Monk
