Leger lines were my nemesis. To this day, I struggle to read them on sight, and often must “finger count” up (or down) to see which note is being indicated. I suppose this is the musical equivalent of bringing along a sack of beans to the store in order to figure out how to count your change!.

Thank you for taking the time to give such positive feedback. It is frustrating that folk use these types of comments pages to express their dissatisfaction, as it is almost always, impossible to look into what happened and take action when such comments are made anonymously. It seems to be the way of the world that this feedback type is more usually taken by those who are disgruntled, so it is particularly valued when people take the time to tell us of their positive experiences, which is much more in line with what patients tell us on a day to day basis..

This ahistorical remark, “Our way of life / has hardly changed / since a wheel first /whetted a knife,” has to be puzzling because even the elementary school child has learned that the lives of all peoples populating planet Earth have been altered dramatically and many times since recorded history commenced. Perhaps, this speaker is reporting from a different planet. But even if one applies the hyperbole to that claim, it cannot be sustained, because the next claim is that other things have in fact changed: the use of fire and the further uses of the wheel, but not the lives of women.

He said to them, You also go into the vinyard and whatevers right you will receive. 8 So when evening had come, the owner of the vinyard said to his steward, Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.9 And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius. 10 But when the first came, the supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius.11 And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner, 12 saying, These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.

Us, this case was never about Aaron Hernandez, said Conley. Case was about two victims who were stalked, ambushed, and senselessly murdered on the streets of the city they called home. I assigned this case to First Assistant DA Patrick Haggan on the very morning of their murders not because we knew where the evidence would take us, but because it was a double homicide with few leads and well suited to his strengths as a prosecutor.
