American composer William Bolcom (*1938) is scandalized that US politicians bowed to pressure from the National Rifle Association after the call for stronger gun control legislation. The Internet and many Amercian newspapers are widely reporting about his song « Aren’t You Ashamed? » Bolcom wrote it on April 18, one day after 45 senators defeated a series of modest proposals to curb the kind of gun violence that led to the slaughter of twenty elementary school kids… Bravo Mr. Bolcom!
