Tonight I heard music by African Americans, performed in a temple built 2,000 years ago by Africans -- possibly slaves -- and stolen by colonial powers, shipped to the other side of the Earth, to rest on land stolen from the people who had lived here for millennia. All that in a wing of the museum sponsored by the billionaire architects of the opioid crisis.

What a weird world.
