I win cases, entertain judges and go to jail for contempt (actually, although I've been threatened, they're generally laughing too hard to remain solemn enough to sentence me to jail) with the use of those words.   I actually used those particular terms in open court in a tough case with about six other lawyers, some of whom were reneging on an announced settlement. The judge called a recess and pulled me into his chambers. Doubled over in laughter, he told me not to do that again or he'd have to hold me in contempt.   When a public defender if angry I used to string epithets into long Faulknerian rambling adjective discourse - they could go on for a minute without a breath (but never in court, always only to myself but sometimes audible).   Only personal judgmental invective/hate mail bothers me - I keep a list of names of those as suspects if I'm ever murdered (talk about a chilling effect on speech!).   Please play on through.   Cordially,   Glenda Sutton

(back) Subject: Funky St. Joe's in Hartford From: "Jonathan B. Hall" <jonahall@indiana.edu> Date: Fri, 25 Jan 2002 13:32:20 -0500 (EST)     A few days ago I posted in re my upcoming Hartford recital on Feb. 2. In that post I extolled the virtues of the Austin organ and the Cathedral of Saint Joseph.   After reading it, My dear friend Malcolm gently chid my hyperbolic streak. =   Well, I stand guilty as charged. Saint Joe's and the Sainte Chapelle are not quite comparable....But still, I must say that my inner 60's child is really taken with the Hartford place. And I really do like the organ.   Partly, I just love bright colors and the cathedral is almost nothing but stained glass, enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, all chunky and funky and bright, and I feel I am floating in pure color as I play the organ there--maybe I should play Messiaen?   (Or perhaps a chorus of "Good Morning Starshine" from "Hair"--All together now: "Gliddy-glop-gloopy, nibby-abba-nooby, na na na no no..." God, I loved that when I was ten!) :)   The Austin has some enormous party horns on it...and some very pretty sounds...   The church strikes me, overall, as a more honest exposition of its style than Saint Patrick's is of Gothic--that sentimental, whipped-cream, upperclass Victorian misappropriation of the good old blue-collar butch Gothic. And those sad-puppy-dog-eyed saints in those pastel windows...! St. Joe's, love it or hate it, is exactly what it claims to be...even if that is a "brutal Mussolini train station," which might be a WEE bit hyperbolic in its turn! :)   Well, cheers to Malcolm and all other sons and daughters of The Land of Branching Rivers...hope to see you soon!   qui transtulit sustinet,   Jonathan in heathen new york          
(back) Subject: Re: Prison organs From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Fri, 25 Jan 2002 13:24:07 -0500   This may not be quite what was intended, but I was organist in the stockade at Ft. Knox KY in the early '60's and had the "pleasure" of = playing Sunday evening services on a Hammond "electronic device" for a fine chaplain, a Lutheran with the rank of Major.   It was interesting, too. As one is told in basic training, saluting = is a privilege, and that privilege is withdrawn from military prisoners. So when Chaplian Bender walked in the front of the stockade with me two steps behind him and two paces to his left (!!), the sentry called the guard to attention and then in their behalf saluted the chaplain. Likewise = anywhere else we went inside the prison; or individual staff persons inside would salute the chaplain if they were on their own at that split second. But = the incarcerated GI's could not salute nor freely talk with him in a public siutation; they could only stand there and look at him. It was heart-breaking.   Obviously, they could talk with him in the secrecy of a pastoral counseling situation.   Cordially,   Karl E.
