Yes, it is unlikely we will ever know the effects definitively. The recent reports do, however, demonstrate that the Russians on the ground here knew where critical swing districts were thought to be and that they concentrated their efforts in some of them. This knowledge was assumed by many to be arcane and unavailable to the miscreants. That they had it and acted on it makes the possibility that the election was critically effected by the Russian effort more plausible.

Of course, I agree entirely.

The indictment says nothing about whether the results of the election were changed.  It is likely that the effects are too difficult to gauge, even though we can ascertain the causes.

I enjoyed Bantock's powerful and brooding 'Thalaba the Destroyer' this morning, as recommended above.

Great! It's a thrilling piece with an exotic oriental touch (something I like so much in works).

The 1963 Music for Strings is also sublime - especially in this performance (much better than the other two).

I also enjoyed Music for strings and the Balalaika concerto a lot. Järvi is a proper conductor for Tubin's works. Rather satisfying pieces.

My pleasure, Karl. 8) If you ever have chance, do check out this DVD documentary on Monk (this is where this footage of him rehearsing came from):



Check it out? Why, I own it 8)

I can name only two. Both Tolstoy works. War and Peace I abandoned because I found the book dull and boring plus it's long as hell, long and dull don't go well together. Anna Karenina I liked more but the time I read some of it was very odd in my life, to say the least. I ran into a copy of it by chance in a hospital and when I got out the book stayed there naturally and I never have returned to it since. Also one scene in the book with a train accident of some sort of in it was a bit too much for me at the time, from personal reasons. I think I'll give both Karenina and War and Peace a second chance some of these days.

Edit: Honorary mention to a book that for the longest time, I never managed to re-read... that is, until a couple of months ago when I finally did it. The book was Moby Dick.
