the simple life

"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Law and Disorder

The Law isn't perfect.

Spray-can perverts desperately await the next festivities, authors fictionalise their memoirs and politicians tell lies that kill people.

Criminals get away everyday.

No, the Law isn't perfect.

For example, how do you legislate against people who play bad music?

I'm talking about the people who play loud music in their vehicles - in cars with the windows down, on bikes with sputtering speakers.

Is it just my bad misfortune that all of these exhibitionists tend to have very poor musical tastes?

I do have a suggestion for these showoffs. Of course, this can be a rather harsh label. Who knows these people might really love music. But that makes my job harder.

You can't cure bad tastes.

If you desire so much to stand out from the pack, avoid cheesy techno music and dance compilations.

Why not try opera?

Go watch The Shawshank Redemption, look for the scene where Tim Robbins plays Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro.

And listen, as did Morgan Freeman who spoke these words:

"Those voices soared, higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away."

Do not just assail our ears.

Affirm our hearts.

Sir,

You are poetic even in your criticisms.
What more can I say?
