In Memory of Elliot Carter
Elliot Carter died a very old man, and was productive right up to the end of his life. May any of us so productive last so long. Okay, not many of us are anywhere near so productive, and we probably ought to die a hell of a lot sooner.
In case you were wondering, I got into the booth today and voted for Jill Stein. Ideology outweighed unwarranted guilt, and if Obama loses my very safe state, he indisputably deserves it, Sandy notwithstanding. I'm pretty sure, though, he didn't.
