Several months ago, I was thinking of jazz musicians back in the day who would lay down tracks in a studio or play in a club and the chemistry that they created. If you could just cut out small pieces of time to preserve those moments, you could preserve the feeling the musicians generated, the ambiance, the emotions of the moment.

Some so-called conservative pundits are acting like they don’t know what Obama and Holder were up to with Fast and Furious. They desperately need to get a clue and realize what Obama is capable of doing to achieve his goals. Bill Whittle makes it clear what Barry was up to.
