I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

Karma is indeed a biotch, and his found him. Finally!


FLS~ This time, though, there was to be no miraculous escape for OJ in the face of overwhelming evidence. He has become, at long last, a convicted criminal.

Sending you lots of positive energy all the way from San Diego :0)

The Fat Lady Sings

This new verdict will most likely be considered as controversial as the last. And I remember the last one - very clearly. Opinion was really split. I was directing one of Athol Fugard's plays at the time - 'Boesman and Lena'. The cast was entirely African American. We had some lively discussions on the subject - I can tell you! But no matter the opinion - everyone was shocked by the 'not guilty' verdict. As far as I was concerned – the man was guilty. It was the dog that convinced me – long before any DNA evidence was presented. Akita's are unswervingly loyal. There is no way that dog would have just sat there watching his mistress get slaughtered. It's all about loyalty to an Akita.

I really do believe in karma, you know. I see this as O. J.’s past sins catching up with him.


Dear M.
You might agree that there is no redemption in pain, and those who know it would wage war against its visitation on others. We stand helpless, while you suffer and can only offer our deepest energies for healing and release. Having just accompanied our dying sister through the last stages of cancer our hearts are sensitive to include you in what remains of our strengths. Ps. You are an old Japaner. Same here. Perhaps one day you will write about it?---Kyoto, here.
