Chordially Yours

Lileks muses:
So there. Obligatory opening statements. I wish we could just have a chord that would stand in for one’s position. A nice augmented chord for those of us who have our beliefs but respect the loyal opposition, a bright shining major tonic for those who are unabashed partisans, and a minor-key fugue that strays into atonal chaos for those who hate the opposition and don’t care who knows it. You’d load the page, hear the chord, and know what you were in for.
And of course, a D minor chord for articles on Jewish music... which reminds me of the tuba player who asked for tips on playing klezmer and was advised "just play D and A."
