Teach Me Tonight

Today is Teachers' Day in Czechia and Slovakia (with which we were much preoccupied on this weekend's Mark Steyn Show), named in honor of John Amos Comenius, a highly influential pedagogue across the Continent.

When Cahn returns to the schoolroom scenario for the final eight bars, he kind of blows it, attempting the trisyllabic words he wisely steered clear of back when he wrote the original: 041b061a72
