Wandered over to the pavilion at Lake Como and took in a concert by the band of local post of the American Legion. It was fun, and very much a community activity. I was struck by the thought that right there, at that moment, was a defining theme for America. A band playing american marches, the mentally disabled hollering from the back, and kids with ice cream.
In a similar theme, at lunch today we were trying to second guess the supreme court and their decision to wuss out on the “under God” question. Two of the four of us at the table had attended state and national level party events, for the two opposing major parties. It continues to shock me how much we really have in common across this supposed culture divide that’s splitting the country this election.
But enough thinking: I’ve got my C64 emulator for OS X. I’m gonna play me some bard’s tale.
