Claiming a Capitol in “The New Holy War”

As of today, I paint this Capitol Rainbow, and plant our fabulous and proud color stamp on it, for everyone and every day we were there during Amendment 2, during Matthew Shepard, during Amendment 43, all the days in between and to this day and every day forward on the march to full equality.

One hundred years ago this month, Claude Debussy wrote an article for Etude Magazine titled “Musical Taste in Modern Times”.

“The sense for the mysterious is gradually disappearing in these days in consequence of the irrepressible desire to prove everything, to explain everything; yet there is something which will always remain mysterious—and that is Taste. Be it understood that here “taste” is used only in its application to music—a subject already difficult enough, for the question of taste enters into close contact with innumerable feelings and nuances in feelings which are one with, and inseparable from, the word ‘Taste.’ …”
