Of morality and law

Moral indignation, howsoever strong, is not a valid basis for overriding individuals’s fundamental rights of dignity and privacy.

Logical extension of this line alone would make the world a much better place.

Cat’s Cradle

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder ‘why, why, why?’
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

-Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle

Lucky Ali

Perhaps no other music is as intertwined with my childhood as Lucky Ali’s. I don’t know what it was; his voice, that middle-east instrument I can’t put a name on, or those awesomely deep lyrics. He was my favorite for such a long time, looking back now, I can’t remember when that ceased to be. I don’t listen to him nearly as often now, and frankly, I am not a big fan of his later albums (fourth on, I think). Occasionally though, I look up his songs up on youtube, and it was a nice surprise seeing that he replies to some videos posted and that he has his own channel. It’s a nice warm feeling having your childhood favorites around. Good times!
