You know, we never discuss politics on MLR. It’s okay. My mother taught me never to talk about religion or politics in mixed company. In fact, she taught me never to talk about religion or politics at all! It always leads to big arguments. It ruins friendships, wrecks marriages, and nobody ever gets converted. To put it another way, as Art and I have so often observed, “You can’t tell anybody anything!” So, we won’t start talking politics now.
However, we can talk about meta-politics. (I just made that word up.) In other words, we can talk about how politics, on the whole, affect us. And that, I think, most of us can agree on.

I was working on my database of tracks when all of a sudden the editing functions stopped working. Couldn’t add or delete data. Weird. So, I closed the program, re-ran it and same problem. Weirder!
Okay, time to re-boot and see if that fixes it. Maybe some random memory collision. Hmmm, computer will not boot. It’s stuck on the Dell logo (BTW this is office computer not DAW). Shut off again wait for 30 seconds try again same deal, stuck on logo. Yikes! Hard drive failure or hardware failure? Oh great, I’m 3 days into the bug that’s going around, not feeling all that wonderful and I don’t really need this now.
I was contacted last week by a “Copyright Registration Service” that wanted to advertise on Music Library Report. They actually had already paid for one month’s ad run (since returned). I was somewhat suspicious but thought I would check it out. The site looked very official and I thought maybe it had some tie in with the U.S. Copyright Office.
