A little night music

Every time I start to think I know something about music, I hear a fugue and it reminds me I'm a rank amateur.  Even something as relatively simple as this "Little" Fugue in G Minor is a mystery to me in how Bach constructed it like a Swiss watch.  Compared with a piece like the "Kyrie" from Mozart's Requiem, even a wonderfully textured and inventive rock classic like Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is painfully basic, almost paint-by-numbers.

Just when you think our racist past is healed ...

Another reason Facebook needs a "Dislike" button.
... something like the Travon Williams shooting comes along and pulls the scab off.

These are all comments I took off of Facebook along with the picture on the left:
It took 2 F***ING WEEKS to arrest Travon's killer...but IF Travon was WHITE and his killer was BLACK...he would have the FBI, SWAT, LOCAL, STATE, the Coast Guard, the Army, Navy, Air Force AND Marines outside his door within an HOUR to HAUL his BLACK A$$ in! The ONLY REASON they even arrested that dude is because they didn't want us to RIOT!
it took 6 weeks dumba$$! Go ahead an riot and we can add you a spot on this gameboard..lmaooo U mutha f***as aint happy either way!! Justice or no Justice! Zimmerman was arrested on 2nd degree murder !! U happy yet b****????? Or U still wanna whine like lil' b****es???? FYM !! GO TO JAIL DUMBA$$ >>lmaooooooooooooooooooooo
In all reality alot of people might feel like they're talking about their life...it hits home...kind of true...police don't want to see alot of people passing go they want them to go straight to jail...it's really unheard of when you get more time for selling drugs than murder...in this crazy world...in my young jeezy voice..lol
What's white Monopoly look like? All Free Parking?
Dear God.  How long will it be before all the anger, the distrust and the hostility subside?
