The great advantage of an English public school education is that no subsequent form of captivity can hold any particular terror for you.
The unfashionable world of Blyton’s school stories still has much to say about what it means to live an ethical life
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
By Richard Kunert
Imagine yourself at a concert hall looking at a symphonic orchestra on stage. Have you ever noticed that high-pitched strings sit left of low-pitched strings? Going from left to right, one usually sees violins, violas, cellos and double basses. That is, one moves from high pitches on the left to low pitches on the right. Why? The orchestra’s arrangement is not a cultural oddity, like driving on the right side of the road. Rather, it is due to our own biological makeup.
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

LONDON — When President Obama arrives in London late Thursday from his trip to Saudi Arabia, the main chatter here is whether he will wade into the heated debate on whether Britain should vote to leave the European Union.
The president and first lady will have lunch Friday with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle — the day after the monarch turns 90 — and dine with Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince Harry at Kensington Palace later that day.
