I thought they were bashing the administration and police upper management....

Seriously @wmarincic? Democrats? How about "politicians?" I can get behind that. But trying to blame poor fiscal policy or overspending on one party or the other is a ridiculous waste of time. No party has a monopoly on wasteful spending. In fact, all politicians seem to have a hard time saying "no" to spending.

Woodrow: a quick Google search shows that costs for Secret service protection of Gingrich have been widely reported recently, and most reference this 2008 article that quotes the director of Secret Service saying "that each candidate’s protection detail costs taxpayers roughly $38,000 a day — a figure expected to increase to $44,000 a day as the campaign heats up and the number of events per day increases."

zelasko optimizes trolls who believe fantasy and will post their delusions regardless of the content of the article or commentary.
There's plenty of reasons to criticize the Obama administration. That they are fakirs who will help behead non-believers is not on any list that deserves to be considered by thinking people.
How about instead we offer a reasoned, thoughtful response to Carl's commentary?

I should correct my comment to say that the crowd was fairly diverse, not necessarily older.

I also thought it was great, and did not believe it was simply "angst." Of course, I knew what to expect.
Agreeing with above commenter, the 4th piece -closest thing to a "normal sax solo- did an excellent job of providing a more familiar place for listeners to grab hold of after the "high experimentalism" of the previous pieces.
Also, I disagree with the assessment that most of the attendees were under 25. In fact, I remember not being surprised that it was an older crowd. But I know that as I get older it gets harder to judge people's age (especially younger people), so perhaps our reviewer is the same way.

I think one reason he does it because a lot of people also use belief in their god to force their will on other people - often violently (as Carl describes).

I, too, agree with bobsemp. This intriguing old building may need to be demolished, but teens drive recklessly all the time. The accident could easily have happened anywhere.
