      And now we can pivot to one of the overriding issues of our day - does law enforcement need to be militarized/"militarized" in order to be effective? Because like Brad said, an effective military depends on people being able to sublimate their individuality, and there is no room for empathy once that happens. War zones, drug lords, yeah, that's shit's real. But so are a lot of other things. Protecting and serving is not by definition an act of aggression against a citizenry, it is an act of love, of empathy for and with a community. Your loved ones should not be your enemies, and that should be a reciprocal feeling. But how can there be love where there is no trust? And how can there be trust where empathy is repressed? Lord knows, I want cops to be heroes, and many of them are. But...there's a lot of culture changes that need to happen so we can evolve forward, changes from and in all cultures, citizens and cops alike. And money, THAT culture needs to change more than any of them because is it just me, or does it seem like when push comes to shove, the institutional structure is going to protect top-down, with money always determining where the top is? Like that mountain-top is just going levitate as the rest of the mountain underneath it burns and crumbles away? I'll call on Johnny again to ask the question that must not go unanswered, and once answered, acted on until all is ready to go, go forward?

      This is happening in the city where I live. Watching it unfold is disquieting to say the least. Supposedly, police are spreading a rumor of busloads of "protesters" on the way to Buffalo as we speak. It will be an interesting weekend.

      String arranger Jeremy Lubbock is an unfamiliar name to me, but looking at his credits I can see that he's quite accomplished. His charts here aretexturally lush and harmonically provocative. My kinda thing for that kind of thing.
