    “Rough wind, that moanest loud
    Grief too sad for song;
    Wild wind, when sullen cloud
    Knells all the night long;
    Sad storm,whose tears are vain,
    Bore woods, whose branches strain,
    Deep caves and dreary main-
    Wail, for the world’s wrong!”

    Percy Bysshe Shelly, DIRGE

  • The convention hasn’t been as boring as everyone says it is.
    Seeing uncoordinated people rocking out to “Living in America” is quite joyously entertaining.
