Gulf War II: The Vengeance

21 March, 2003 at 2:34 pm (body politic, dear diary, music)

It’s been slightly more than three years since the factory-install cassette deck in my car stopped working. Well, that’s not strictly true, there was a two month period in there someplace when it magically started working again, risen like Jesus, before ceasing to play tapes any more. I have wrestled with this is many different ways, but the primary two ways have been: playing music in a portable tape player that sat on the floor, and listening to NPR. The first solution wasn’t; it was a terrible, scratchy, mono-audio substitution, and I can’t believe I spent about fifty dollars on D batteries over the past three years. The second solution was a good one, a mature one. It has allowed me to get in touch with the events of the world and start to form opinions based on evidence instead of gut feelings and knee-jerk responses.

So what did I do on the second day of Gulf War II: The Vengeance? Bought a new factory-install cassette deck from a local junkyard. Time to listen to some music for a while.
