While all Israeli media are bringing hourly updates on the ( very bad ) condition of Yasser Arafat I am writing my first posting since I started using my new study this afternoon. I am thinking about ( and - in addition to my regular work - working on ) three articles, one on the Chairman, one about the murder of director-columnist Theo van Gogh in Amsterdam two days ago by a Muslim fanatic, and one about the re-election of George W. Bush as the President of the United States for the next four years. In the meantime I listen to Johannes Brahms' violin sonatas. Now that I finally have enough shelves to beautifully display all my CDs and books I will be able to fully enjoy my large ( classical ) music collection.
