Oh, how I wish that song were not still so absolutely relevant. When will we ever learn? What have we ever learned? I'm learning to keep my mouth shut if I want any peace, which somehow seems wrong, being as this is a country where free speech is almost as important as the right to bear arms or for boys to be boys. Yes. I am angry! The polarization in this country is breaking my heart. Are these the growing pains of democracy or its death throes? Sad to say, I am really glad I don't have any children to leave this mess to.
Far more erudite and intelligent friends have been writing about our condition today. So I'll stop now. I figured it was safe to vent a little here since no one reads these blogs anyway. Therefore the danger of starting a flaming war is minimal. Test, test, is anyone out there?
Come to our gigs. It will be fun. We will create a concentrated area of peace, love, and understanding.
