The prelude for Bach’s cello suite #1 is the greatest piece of music ever written by man. Prove me wrong.

As much as I love Rostropovich, he plays this one like he is in a hurry. Yo Yo Ma did it better; just ignore the annoying political ad tacked on at the end.

A lot of you know how little attention I like to pay to the polls, because they fluctuate, are just a snapshot, and anything can happen. However, the way things are currently trending, with Obama close to opening a double digit lead in several national polls, several state polls are pretty shocking:

Obama +10 in Virginia
Obama +6 in North Carolina
Obama +7 in Ohio

If McCain loses Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina- Boom boom, out go the lights!

Love that song.
