Pledge of Allegiance

A brief note on the flag appearing on the right-hand side of this page is in order. In answer to a few inquiries, it is decidedly not the Hammer and Sickle of the old Soviet Union. Rather, I have chosen the flag of Animal Farm, Orwell’s satirical novel, in a design realized by Marc Pasquin. The somewhat poignant (to me, at least ) description of the flag from the novel has been added as a caption.

And of course, all double bassists are equal, but some double bassists are more equal than others....
