Missouri, home of ragtime, casts it's ballot for ....

Donald Trump. He's our man. 
If he Can't Do It, No One Can. 
Then We're Screwed.

I liked tonight, that the Missouri delegation to the Republican presidential Convention reminded everyone that it is
the home of "ragtime", in the person of Scott Joplin.
just another reason that I really love Missouri.

"New York, New York" as a Ragtime Piano song
(barf bags if necessary, available in the arena):



((How Interesting is this!?!
That rendition of 'New York, New York' was performed by
Jon Englund, twin brother of Ronald Englund,
a.k.a. Freddy Kruger, of "Nightmare on Elm Street" horror movie fame~!))

Wow, there may be conspiracy theory material there.. 
Or a sure sign of the end of the World~
AT LEAST, THAT'S SOME AMERICANA, RIGHT THERE~

Play instead this more wholesome, more TRUMPIST selection from Scott Joplin, composed within 1 year of Joplin's move to New York from Sedalia, Mo.,

The "Wall Street Rag", a most uniquely-slow Joplin rag, 
which has never been featured on my Joplin-biased bloggie before:
