When jazz legend Charles Mingus died in 1979, he left behind quite a legacy (all that follows is from the official website):
-a uniquely important place in twentieth century music
-inspirational work as bass player, pianist, bandleader and composer.
-nearly 70 albums as a bandleader
-a discography chock-full of treasures
–one toilet training manual for house cats.
Quote: “Don’t be surprised if you hear the toilet flush in the middle of the night. A cat can learn how to do it, spurred on by his instinct to cover up.”
The method progrssively cuts down on the use of newspaper, so may be indeed be a parable for our times….
