The How and Why of Life and Death

I like klezmer music. Maybe that's why I immediately liked Kevin Kling when I heard him on National Public Radio tonight.

No, he is not a musician. He is a storyteller. But his style is, with apologies to the group, is "klezmerim" in the sense of a slightly off tempo building to frantic crescendo that darts sidelong towards its point.

The story he chose to share was personal. It involved travel -- to hell as a matter of fact. And it involved disability -- his own.

Rather than spoil the tale and it's tellinglyou can listen to it for yourself here.
