Miscarriage of justice

Simon Armitage compares the fate of 17th century witches to people falsely accused of terrorism in the wake of 9/11 and John Preston nods along in a none-too-sage sort of way.

Neither man could cite a single instance of a man falsely accused of terrorism in the wake of 9/11. Neither man is interested in the small army falsely accused of witchcraft in the wake of 9/11, all of them in Arabia and South Africa and other hellholes beloved of the BBC.

Patrick Cassidy - Vide Cor Meum

"Based on the sonnet "A ciascun'alma presa" from Dante's "La Vita Nuova". Dante would surely approve.

Thanks and bravos to Patrick Cassidy - composer, producer; Hans Zimmer - producer; Danielle de Niese - soprano as Beatrice; Bruno Lazzaretti - tenor as Dante; Libera / Lyndhurst Orchestrathe, conducted by Gavin Greenaway - choir and orchestra.

The word is that Patrick Cassidy was so overwhelmed and surprised with the arias reception that he is working on a complete opera in the same style."
