MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- At the moment former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich appears to be leading other republican presidential contenders in the polls. I say “for the moment,” because by the time I finish writing these comments someone else may very well be the front runner.
A couple of my friends have noticed, with some chagrin, that everyone, including the media, seems to delight in attacking the front runners. The Japanese have a phrase for this sort of behavior: the nail that sticks up is the one that gets hammered down.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Ever since the early days of broadcasting, nearly 100 years ago, the law has had an almost impossible time trying to keep up with technology. Every time legislators think they have the technology figured out, a new wrinkle comes along that changes all of the rules.
Now Congress is trying to figure out how to prevent cyber-theft of movies, songs and consumer goods, which is a good thing, but in the process may end up shutting down innumerable legitimate web sites, particularly social media and user-generated content.
A CD featuring the work of the Middle Tennessee State University School of Music Wind Ensemble was recently released by the Naxos recording label.
Headquartered in nearby Franklin, Tennessee, Naxos is now the world’s largest distributor of classical recordings.
MTSU's Dr. Reed Thomas directed the 55-member ensemble, made up primarily of undergraduate MTSU students. He said the CD,entitled "Angels in the Architecture" has been so well-recieved that Naxos is asking when the school of music will have another recording ready to distribute.
