It's been a long time

it's been a long time coming

But it appears...

Joshua Bell playing a Stadivari at the L'Enfant Plaza metro station and the reaction to it. What a spetacular piece written by Gene Weingarten of the WasPost and promoted by the same. I sadly remember this station and even more sadly remember the sight of men in expensive suits having their shoes shined by some blond at their feet. I now have a name for the woman I so sadly felt for. I at the time, remember calling my best friend and now husband completely disgusted by the sight. It is no surprise that the neither the shoe shiner nor the soe shinees would notice brilliant music.

I do not pay that much attention to Washington politics but this picture for its uniqueness struck me as that of one courageous woman who is not afraid to put her acts where her mouth is. Thank you Nancy Pelosi for your courage in not putting on a head scarf, wearing a pants suit and sitting in a seat no woman has ever sat in before. You will forever have my admiration. All of this in Saudi Arabia, that wahabi bastion of retrogade and sexist politics. Where women are not allowed to a driver's licence much less the right to vote. And this dynasty is considered the West's allies. HUGH!!
