The Washington Post reports that an equal number of people believe the Republicans and Obama would be responsible for a shutdown of government. This is simply a reflection of the huge amount of money the Citizens United Supreme Court decision has allowed corporations to pour into Republican PR coffers. We are well on our way to Plutocracy.
Our New Horizons Band at Eckerd College is busy. We are in our third week of winter semester, and we have had two great rehearsals and a nice outdoor gig. We performed two sets for the Gulfport Art Walk this past Friday night. It was a beautiful evening, with a nice audience and lots of pedestrian traffic.
We will be performing for International Night at Sanderlin Elementary next Thursday night 10 February. The International Baccalaureate PTA is sponsoring the evening.
On Saturday afternoon 12 March we will host one of New Horizons Southeastern tour stops, with a 2:00 pm reading session followed by a dinner with participants at Billy's Stone Crab in Tierra Verde. That should be a great day.
