Jay ends this podcast with a recording by an American tenor — a man who sings “O Holy Night.” He once made a living as a big-rig truck driver. And bounty-hunter. Preceding this seasonal musical treat, you have talk of Syrians, Saudis, business titans, football players, and others. Come along and Jaywalk.

    The hatred that savagery feels for anything higher, or more decent, or good.

    Such a powerful statement. Undercut by the sprightliness of the piano piece immediately following, unfortunately. But it rings so true – awful people want to destroy things that are better than they are because they feel ashamed in comparison.

    Loved Carl Tanner! And that is my favorite serious Christmas carol… I immediately went to iTunes & bought that one, and 2 others… 

    I completely & sadly agree about the fragility of civilization & the contagious passion for destruction… I suppose, why the tragic view of life makes the most sense.
