I thought someone taped me:-). But I'm reminded, listening to the sound
sample, of the comment from the narrator in Robert Penn Warren's "All the
King's Men" of how hears his boss-to-be's coming-to from the man's first
serious bout with liquor. Willie Stark, he says, made a sound "like an oboe
blatting in a barrel of feathers."

Reminds me of the sound sample. It also suggests what I think I'd sound
like if I were ever foolish enough to take up the oboe.

meant to make us discover those other conditions within ourselves, love,
belief in love, to which forgiveness itself is incidental..."--C. K.
