Every one bit the dust

Disturbing news, for a baby boomer anyway, comes from my recent reading of Steve Knopper’s article “The End of Owning Music,” Rolling Stone, June 14 issue, and  Renée Graham’s “In the YouTube Era, Can We Still Savor Music?” Boston Globe, June 17. They shook my whole personal music foundation. 
I grew up in a rural area listening to top-40 radio and purchasing 45 singles and occasionally 33 rpm LPs. The first LP I owned was Johnny Cash, “Hey Porter/CryCryCry,” on Sun Records. (Wish I still had it.)

The oak and the maple and our dashed hopes

I should have known better. Daring to predict the quality of the autumn foliage in New England is an act of hubris that seldom goes unanswered. Alert readers of this column will have noticed that despite my assertion in September that we had the potential for an outstanding display of fall color, we have instead experienced one of the drabbest, most muted and altogether lackluster leaf peeping seasons in recent memory.
