Moogfest is over. I would like to thank the Koch Brothers and Art Pope for instilling in me a love for physics and music that really made it all a blast. Were their vast knowledge about these two topics not mixed into the mush before it was poured under the skullcap, I certainly wouldn’t have been able to, as they say, become one with the machine, and groove out.

And while we are speaking of such things, I have a question about racism that has nothing to do with the big hype today. I was wondering if the next batch of Koch/Pope mush might explain why somebody who raises a bar is called racist when those who automatically assume the move was intended to discriminate against inferior these-or-those is not.
