CBS News Sunday Morning had a piece on treating turntables as instruments. QUOTE:
Among the many sounds at Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, where the only music on the curriculum is contemporary, one could say its latest is a sort of throwback to the past
Today, the turntable is no longer just for playing music, but making music. At Berklee, the turntable is the instrument.

WorldNetDaily.com has an article which basically points out that on Outkast’s website their is a picture of Andre 3000 holding a gun. WorldNetDaily does not say it but the obvious point they are trying to make is that the Democrats are hypocritical for having an artist perform who has been pictured holding a gun. WorldNetDaily then goes on to point out Outkast uses profanity and has song titles on their album and have song titles with sexual innuendo. I guess World Net Daily expects us to be outraged and hate the Democrats because of it. Outkast won Best Album of The Year for their latest album despite the fear of a rap planet. WorldNetDaily does not realize it is on the losing side of the culture war on this issue.
The Heritage Foundation points out several governors have grown in popularity for their attempts to cut government. Quote:
Conventional wisdom has long held that voters punish politicians who cut government spending. Politicians fear that they will be labeled uncaring, lose friends, and maybe even lose their jobs if they try to scale back the size of government, even for the sake of balancing a budget.
If this was ever the case, it is no longer. In the face of increasing government obligations to fund priority programs, reductions in nonessential spending are not only necessary, feasible, and responsible, but also popular . A survey of state executives makes the point clear: Regardless of party, current governors who have cut state spending to balance their budgets enjoy strong popularity. Further, their counterparts who chose to raise taxes find support waning.
