Meanwhile, the stark, disturbing facts of the Boston bombings help one remember how much society depends on the vast majority of people being incapable of the monstrosity that the bomber(s) displayed. Today I hope to accomplish a great deal.I am thinking about how to spend my Saturday--perhaps making music with stray sounds and a small software synthesizer.
