    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    The local classical radio station played some Faure for his birthday this morning. I caught them with the back announcement, so I didn't hear it. It is also Massenet's birthday.

    Happy birthday to Richard Wagner, May 22, 1813 - February 13, 1883.

    In his honor I will be listening to the complete Mendelssohn symphonies today.

    He's written a double concerto for flute and oboe. A lot of his other music has parts for flute as well.

    I would have listened to something if I remembered to check my list of birthdays. Haven't been doing that lately.
