Road Rage Remedy:
Concerto for Guitar in D-major by Antonio Vivaldi

March of the Day:
Old Comrades by Carl Teike

The Worthless Word for the Day:
depontication [ad L. pons/pontis, bridge; after defenestration] the act of hurling from a bridge

"There are several instances of defenestration in Czech history, and it has continued into modern times. The martyrdom of St Johannes is the only case of depontication, but it must be part of the same Tarpeian tendency." - Patrick Leigh Fermor, A Time of Gifts (1977)

[this is quoted (erroneously? ) online as 'depontiFIcation' , perhaps influenced by this: "Shana Alexander added that if this verb [to defenestrate] is acceptable, then jumping off of bridges should be "depontification."]
