    I no longer recall what they were, but some comments he made about the US and music when he first converted really turned me off to him at the time.

    The funny thing is that today I might be a lot more in agreement with him about the US, but to me music is like a life-blood flowing through my veins.
    (Real music that is – most of the crap they push on the radio these days I don’t consider to be music!)

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
