"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Birthday Today - Bach!

It's Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday today.   Here is one of his greatest choral works, the St. Matthew Passion.   Seems fitting for getting us in the mood for Holy Week.   Enjoy!
