Due to circumstances beyond our control, the management of his establishment is sorry to advise that tomorrow's blog will be posted - but a little later in the afternoon.

Bear with us, while these crucial adjustments are being made.

And Czech in again with us towards the end of the working day.

Shoot or Talk - Two Holy Ways

I forgot to add to the blog yesterday the little news about Rudy Giuliani, the man who lays claim to cleaning up New York.

Speaking before The National Rifle Association, Mr. 911 actually said that the right to carry guns is as precious to Americans as the right to free speech.

'Nuff said?

In addition to being the worst President in American history, now maybe George Bush will also be given credit for destroying the Republican party for some many years to come. At least that's something!

Who Said Satchmo Never Spoke Up?

In the light of what is going on in Jena, La. these past few days, it is more than instructive - it's downright wonderful - read what Louis Armstrong did on the subject of racism 50 years ago.

Mr. Armstrong was famously and wrongly accused by many black and white Americans of being a silent Jim Crow apologist.

But, read this NY Times reflection ("The Day Louis Armstrong Made Noise") and you will see that Pop's heart and soul were always in exactly the right place.
