I shoveled the driveway and sidewalk today but I couldn't very well bust my usual complaint ("why did I leave the Middle East?") out. After all, there's snow today in Jerusalem and Cairo and parts of Lebanon too.
Stuck inside, I sit in my basement office grading final papers, drinking instant mocha, and listening to some good Student Paper Music on vinyl: Mahalia Jackson's "Great Songs of Love and Faith." Next up on the stack of records: Alice Cooper's "Love it to Death" and Black Milk's Third Man live 12" (thanks for that one Tony!).
