The elections might be grabbing most of the news coverage today, but a great escape from all the politics is music.  Today, November 6th is Saxophone Day, marking the birth of Adolphe Sax, the inventor of many musical instruments.

Sax was born in Belgium in 1814, the eldest of 11 children and the son of a musical instrument maker.

Sax went on to invent the saxophone and enjoyed great wealth and fame for a while.  He ended up dying penniless in 1894 in Paris, France.

The saxophone has endured, and is a favorite with jazz musicians and music lovers everywhere.

Today may be election day, but the hot air expended by politicians would be put to better use playing a saxophone.  Former president Bill Clinton seemed to know that.  He should have played (the Saxophone) more.
