Trump wants a vote on a Supreme Court nominee to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg by Election Day. Let's say I make the announcement on Saturday this A great deal of time before the election, that'll be up to Mitch in the Senate. But I'd certainly much rather have the vote. I think it sends a good signal. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says there will be a vote this year. No Senate has failed to confirm a nominee in the circumstances. That face us right now. The historical precedent is overwhelmingly and it runs in one direction, McConnell says. The president has the majority party in the Senate, as opposed to 2016 when Barack Obama's party did not have the majority Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says it's an exercise in raw political power. Nothing. Nothing More humor, says this could have a long lasting impact. If a Senate majority over the course of six years steals to Supreme Court seats, using completely contradictory rationales.

Gerald Stern reads Torn Coat
"This week. We spoke Oke with Gerald Stern in New York City. Stern says he's been writing poetry for thousand years. When people see how old I am? They say are visual writing. Are you kidding technically. It's been eighty three years. He started writing at the age of twelve. The poem torn in coach. which you are about to hear borrows the phrase from Joyce who borrowed the phrase from one of these ups fables? The aunt worked all summer summer saving food. For the winter. The grasshopper lean disalvo spit. Tobacco had a good time came to winter in the aunt had plenty to eat and the grass out for head. Nothing the grasshopper begs is the anti give him food. And the ant says no Joyce's concept in Finnegans wake was a great hct. Hernan will expecting expecting grace to befall him from the grace of God or whoever gives grace so joyce renamed the animal a grace hopper oper. Here's Gerald Stern reading. The poem torn coat recorded his to have forgotten the torn coat of Vicky Zamora Korea from Puccini's La. boheme enter. Remember the other coats for Mao Torre on down and look what it is to give your own code away three times now and to walk shivering in three different countries countries of tears. The opportunity in tears for a horse all bone on hillside without a blanket in him laughing at me because there were no tears left for freezing grace hct. I don't know how to explain this but sometimes reading poems that come in a word just leaps out at you and Dan you never for you now. You never forget the word but you never forget where you I sort of thought about it and and I think most people not to give things away or says them terribly of the but when you get to the end of the home in you see grace hopper as a word you think it's Typo in thank. Thank my colleagues here kept querying. Let's racer but when I saw it I just the Joyce didn't come to mind. I'll be honest but I knew I knew. A grace hopper is a perfect thing to have come into existence if it isn't already there and so you know the poem had me with the very last word I mean what comes before is lovely and I'm very fond of this palm but I think it had be at grace oper. Yes in. It's a great gift. That a poem can give you a a word or a phrase that just sort of lodges itself and there's you know I'll be looking around wherever I go now for Grace Sir grace home and I and I think one or two. Yes yeah it does it. It really startles you sort of at that ending. Yeah it makes you just make your way all the way up the palm again and just looking to how we got there. It's a one-sentence in this poem. It's it's really moving and turning towards that culmination and man. There's so many coats in the wrong and I ages started thinking about all the coats that we know. I mean not only the ones that are listed here like the Puccini coat but Josephine is many colored coat. And even you know Yates's code and I made my song. Coat covered with embroideries out evolve mythologies it's like that's part of what's going on in this poem as well but it also seems to me it's taking some of of these coats out of their mythological mantles an into this moment of generosity. Right look what it is is to give your own code away three times now and to walk shivering in three different countries. And I think it's just so hard to talk about an act of kindness like that without it being a sort of shall we say virtue signaling or something like that and one of the one of the ways that this poem really distances itself from. That seems to me as using the you rather than the I if we assume that maybe the I actually did these things. And and also that repetition of look what it is you know look what it is to have forgotten the torn code in the Puccini Opera. And look what it is to give your our own code away. And there's a kind of parallelism about that in which forgetting in giving away seem to be laterally positioned there there and I really appreciated that about this poem. Because it's it's about so much I mean it's about the presence and sort of symbolic mobility of some of these coats in poetry and in the Old Testament and in you know sort of their all of these again all of these codes but then also there. Are these acts of kindness. That can happen as we're told three times now and speaker of the poem doesn't really fully say that he in this case gave his coat away but just look what it is to give your own code away so it becomes. The coat becomes transformed into something that can actually help to warm a real living person Jason or a horse who was all bones on hillside without a blanket. I love the way this poem made all of that happen. It's a short poem home. And the texture of it is very complex complexly woven the title of course is torn coat and yet when you get through that part about that tears. Here's for the opportunity tears for horse. It's sort of tears. Tears happening somehow there and when you think of torn born coat you're liable to think of a coat that's been in use for a long time or as experienced like its owner Sir hardships. You know it's torn and there's sort of an interesting interesting kind of thing that happens when you realize that you've been describing. The poem is about. It's about many things but if you give your own code oh two way then you go back to is like was it torn off. You know you you gave it away. What kind of coat was it? Well it could be any kind of co because there are so many precedents. Yes yes as a as a kind of covering is very eerie. Because you have to think about so many in different kinds of things simultaneously. You have to think about all these coats you have to think about. You know most people are capable of generosity. One if you give a code away you might do that once Twice three times. That's a Lotta coat giving away that's right and it's it's like at the same time the landscape in which this occurs sort of move salon from like the kind of culture urban world of the the opera to mount hor on down all the way down. And then you're left with this horse all bone on a hillside in you have to think about the freezing Graham because ultimately if you encounter a freezing grace hopper can you give it a coat. What is the right coat for freezing grace hopper so there are many gifts given their eater in this palm but most of them are kind of questions that have no oh answers you sort of have to peel off meaning for yourself the way? The poem describes peeling off

There's a lot of music for kids, so you can come to lobby Emon, see kids onstage, kids, your own age. And then also what's really interesting for kids is the opportunity to hear an orchestra live supporting a cast of singers who are telling a story live on stage. It's way, more exciting engrossing than watching a movie on Netflix, because it really the sound actually reaches you in the audience. It's like a physical experience of the vibrations from the stage and how kids get involved in opera. Well, I think there's a lot of opportunities to get involved in opera. You can reach out to your local offer company, and see if they need people to intern or usher, or even sing on stage you can watch opera. Online. There's a ton of opera on YouTube, that you can sort of get to know, the stories, the big stories that are, that are told it's basically just theater, but there's an orchestra.

You know what it's only a one act play. I mean one act opera. And I mean, I don't know if a lot of people know the story, it takes place in my Sinisa Greece, which is about fifteen hundred BC the classical age of Greece's about five hundred BC, and they're not sure it's mythology. But I believe it really happened. There was a community in Greece called Mycenaean a state, and I was actually when I was in Greece. I walked through the lion's gate, so what the story is about. Basically Electric's father Agamemnon is bird by her mother Clintonesque because she's having an affair with this guy. So it's a revenge story. She's hell bent on revenge. Does.

I'm always fascinated how these ancient stories are still so applicable even though they were written in some cases thousands of years ago. They still are very applicable to situations and scenarios that are going on today. Here's the clue they if they if they're dealing with human nature. It doesn't matter the time. That's why Shakespeare is still so relevant. Right. If they're dealing human nature doesn't change and off. Great stays the same. We're all jealous. Envious murderous the wrong.

We are talking about this in because it has always rent is always a fun thing to talk about. But also because on Sunday night, FOX aired rent live five sort of live. Wren kind of why again, I I called it rent lived. Oh is that? Okay. Because the man who played Roger broke his angles the dress rehearsal and something like I dunno shuttle him on and off stage at opportune moments because they didn't have an understudy. This is yet. I mean, I was watching this with a group of friends on Sunday, and everyone seemed very perplexed as to a wide. There is no under study for Roger and be like whether or not this was some sort of conspiracy to have it not be live because they were like why was the why was addressed hersal taped? And why was the dress rehearsal tape like so well until professionally and I was like guys, I cannot entertain this conversation. Sure. There's a reason. But these are some good talking points just to start. I think goodness. And also knowing that Adam has cowed the Oji. Roger was there backstage the entire time. They didn't close out. It would be very funny if they like made him out there shoved him in those tight pants like you got this. I also was at the end of the show they brought the entire almost the entire original cast out and for out fast gal had to sit not a table like. Like, you know, twenty yards away from everybody because he was keeping the new Roger company, which was nice, but also little little apparently the studio audience saw an actual live version in which the actor playing Roger was being wheeled about in a wheelchair. And I don't know why they didn't just broadcast that because that is I know so no day. But today just go forward with it. All of the clips I saw on Twitter of what the studio audience was actually seeing were fucking amazing. Right. Like Roger foot on a like racing. His foot being pushed around by like whoever was available at the time doing, you know, giving it his all everyone was sort of dress down a little which I enjoyed that had that looked more like of good fun dress rehearsal to watch as opposed to what we watched a on Sunday. Yeah. Especially because if final dress rehearsal, that's sort of still intact is like you're marking it you're not going as you might be a little half assing it like saving your voice for the performance. So the facts the version where they they might have been holding back just makes me angry. I agree if they did like just make Roger wheelchair would make it even more impressive that he went out. Yeah. She does. Yeah. You're in a fucking wheel broke your ankle offstage during commercial break, and your I was most upset by his toes, which were visible the every time the foot swaying into into camera.

"One of the songs near the end of the first acts of rent downstairs at the Fisher theatre for one more week, and by way of background the musicals creator Jonathan Larson who sadly dies prior to its opening based rant on Puccini's opera called LA Boheme, which focused interestingly on the lives of the poor and the then in eighteen hundreds Paris, the threat of to Burke, yellow sus. And I don't know how much. Logan, research you've done. But it's certainly a fascinating story personally. He died the year after I was born. So it would have been very hard to meet him myself. But being part rented this beautiful show where because conic and done Broadway off Broadway on this and this tour that it really is a giant family more than any other show. I've been a part of because that's what the story line is. It's about the friends is this chosen family going through their everyday struggles and has artists and young people. We do that every day no matter if you have a disease or not or what year it is. And I feel a special honor because Jonathan Larson is very specifically written. He kind of wrote a lot of himself in Mark is very observant person. And he also lived in this high rise and couldn't really by people in. So he dropped to the key down to his friends, and they would come and not exactly what my character dies in the opening scene. And there's a little bit of a. A little bit of pressure that comes with it. Also, this huge honor that I'm kind of carrying Jonathan with in my my part. But you're right that it's very interesting that the tuberculosis became aid because it was very life changing at that point for many people in ninety six because aids wasn't very talked about, and it was kind of swept under the rug and look at this bad thing. But he really brought it to lion. He made these people whether they were suffering with aids or whether they were just an interracial couple or a gay couple or lesbian couples feel more accepted for who. They are. Because in the show it wasn't about that. Specifically was about the struggle of surviving with the disease, and the friendship and the love and everything that comes with it. So it was very groundbreaking in. It's time for many different reasons like that. And you allude marks playing the lead in rent here in Detroit at the Fisher theatre about how difficulty is being in your profession. Do I recall you, maybe at one point setting up a schedule where you would get up at five o'clock in the morning. You would go to the audition buildings. You would sign in you'd have to wait sometimes you'd wait all day long. Sometimes you wouldn't be seen at all. Then you'd have to work at night and go home at midnight. And then pretty much what start that schedule the next day. Yes. Absolutely. It is it's interesting because a lot of people who aren't in the arts or the theater don't realize that while yes, we pick this career for ourselves. It is still very challenging. It's not just about half dance across the stage or playing pretended. If it's what you love. I think you should always follow your passion. But passionate is is then challenging, and even if you get a job, you're lucky if it lasts a year because like my contract for toys a year long, and then you're kind of out on the streets, again, metaphorically speaking just trying to get another job. But I've I've been at auditioned buildings from six AM to six PM haven't even been seen. And then of course, because I have student loans to pay apartment with rent to pay no pun intended. I have to work as well to make money like any person who is now in the adult post-graduate world so work at night, but I could edition in the morning, and then it would get home. Really lay and I eat food, and I would go to bed and get up and do it again, which was a struggle for me. Because I am a self-proclaimed proclaimed old grandpa man, where I really need about eight hours of sleep. But I would never get that. It's just it's very tricky. There are especially in New York City. There are hundreds and hundreds and thousands of people who want exactly what you want, and they all show up, and everyone knows that the early gets the worm. So they'll be there early and. It's very challenging it feels giving you to get a job because it does makes you feel like you're supposed to be hearing supposed to be doing this. But it doesn't mean that it can't be also very disheartening. And I guess we're lucky about little soul, crushing when you feel like you're one of then you're just trying to make your voice heard and do what you love to do. But then there's that moment. When for example, you get the call that you've been cast as Mark in rant were you? What was it? You you run into a closet? You. Call your mom, and you you start crying about it. Yes. I did. I was I was actually very lucky where I had received another job offer that was about to accept and then my agent very nonchalantly emailed me and said, I just want to let you know that I'm you'll be getting an offer to play Mark tonight in the rent Twitter anniversary tour, it was always something toward without something. I dreamed of especially in college, and I had never imagined that it would be a principal role in such an iconic incredible show less than a year after I graduated. So it was it was quite shocking. Not that I didn't believe in myself. But again, it's it's hard. I don't wanna say New Yorkers soul-sucking. But there is this factor of it that just kind of take some of a lot of fun and the magic out of what we get to do because it's such a competition, and it's just hard to feel special and like you deserve that before we run out of time. Here's the song that opens the second act. How important are.

Classics for Kids Puccini's La Boheme
"I may OMI Lewin welcome to classics for kids. Giacomo Puccini's opera Laba. Whim is about struggling artists in Paris, France. Laba win means the bohemian lifestyle. But Bohai Mia isn't in France. It's in eastern Europe. In the Czech Republic unto Nin version was born in Bohemia and wrote music about the legends connected with bohemian forests. Edrich smitten was also from Bohemia and he included a piece about bohemian forests and meadows in the set of tone poems. He called mave last my fatherland. Smetana's first opera the Brandenburgers in Bohemia also celebrated his native region. People from other countries wrote bohemian music to one of the regional dances that Russian composer Nikolai rimsky-korsakov put into his opera ballet. Lada was bohemians. And when Frenchman Judah Messana wrote an orchestral suite called picturesque scenes. He included a bohemian festival. In French. The word bohemian is also used to refer to the gypsy or Roma people. That's because when the Roma gypsies migrated to France, it was from the general direction of Bohemia. So the French started calling them Boheme bohemians the Roma gypsies are famous all over Europe and beyond for their music, Spanish, composer public at Asante, borrowed some of their melodies. Early. And so did Hungarian composer FRANZ Liszt. And German composer Yohannes Brahms. Put a gypsy style finale onto the end of his first piano quartet. Of course, the most famous gypsy bohemian in music is the title character of George visas opera Carmen. Since room gypsy unions were often poor, highly independent unusual lives. French playwrights, and authors started using the word bohemian to describe poor artists who also led highly independent unusual lives Puccini based his opera level him on a French play called Cendana, beatable, whim, or scenes bohemian life by v meal. She the main characters in level Wim live hand-to-mouth. They never know where their next meal is coming from, but they don't worry too much about it. Cheaney's opera about happy, but poor artists seems familiar to you from the musical rent.
