More music news

The other day I had a hankering to listen to Schubert's beautiful D940 Fantasia in F Minor for piano four hands, so I dug it up from the bottom of the bottom box of classical music awaiting a set of shelves somewhere in our house. The cd also had the much less interesting Marches Militaires - during one Rilkekind looked up from his toys and said, "This is march music". Or something not unbelievably precocious which sounds similar, though I can't figure out what.

I/P conflict news

Interesting if accurate: a Palestinian Center for Public Opinion poll says that support for Hamas in Gaza has fallen to 28% from 51% in November. And Fatah is up to 41%. There will be much gnashing of teeth in some quarters of the blogosphere if this holds up. Well, more likely it won't get discussed.

Also, the conflict reportedly got to a senior British diplomat, who allegedly said a few unfortunate but not psychotic things. I somehow hadn't realized this is the sort of thing one can get arrested for in the UK.
