We've had Teaparty since 2005

He doesn't have a website yet, but Bob Barrett is running for Jeremy Kalin's House seat (17B). I've known Barrett and his family for a number of years and he and I have had many a conversation over that time.

Fans of the local editorial pages may recall Barrett; Chisago County is GOP was a big fan of his letters to the editor when he was writing.

I am certain all of the GOP candidates for this seat are good people, but Barrett is the only one I know well enough to state it unequivocally. Bob's not a big shot or anything, just a regular dude; the kind of guy you just know the legislature needs more of but rarely, if ever, enjoys.

If any of the five or ten 17B readers would like to know more about Bob, here's his e-mail:

Tell him the original Teaparty said hello.

When I first saw a video of the big piano at FAO Schwarz in New York City being played, I was most intrigued. If the room in which the piano is located is too dry, there is the risk of getting cracks in the sound board of your piano. Contrairement au blues, au gospel, aux chants de travail, expression de l'esclavage et de la misre l'tat brut, le ragtime est d'emble une musique labore, pratique par la petite frange des Noirs cultivs, connaissant la musique et, en particulier, l'uvre des grands compositeurs europens pianistiques du 19mesicle (Chopin, Liszt-). If you play several different C's in a row, you will notice that the note changes in pitch but not in tone.
