QuoteRepression is not the way to virtue. When people restrain themselves out of fear, their lives are by necessity diminished. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed and still kept within the bounds of reason.

QuoteI don't really follow guitar prices, but that guitar, being a 1963 (or earlier) Gibson ES-335, and if factory-correct (or restorable to factory-correct condition), could easily go for $20,000, wouldn't you think?

We'll look at stories of African-Americans who passed as white to escape slavery or Jim Crow and find out how the "one-drop rule" enabled one blonde-haired, blue-eyed American to live a double life without ever arousing suspicion. We'll also explore the story of an African-American musician [Korla Pandit] who pioneered a genre of exotic music with a bejeweled turban and an invented biography, and examine the hidden costs of crossing over.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korla_PanditKorla Pandit died in Petaluma, California of a myocardial infarction.
