Something I meant to write at the end of the previous post is about a good friend, who died fairly young 1/2 a year ago. As I pondered this new Cultural Revolution stupidity and what we all could do about it, I thought of Frank, who I could bounce these thoughts off of. We talked politics mostly, and he'd come over from quite a ways once a week or two to do that.
He didn't have all the answers either, but it sure was great to get a 2nd opinion and encouragement. I sure miss him in these times.
We'd have probably discussed the Juneteenth business, a term that I only first heard about one month ago. Now, it is apparently bigger than Christmas. The corporate honchos sent out an email that went into some detail about what this bullshit is about. Yeah, there was some important other stuff in the email too, so, there's, well NOT that, because the thing went straight into that little galvanized-steel trashcan style icon. I hope it wasn't something I absolutely needed to know about... too bad, so sad.
I will admit that the corporate people mention the word Christmas, though usually only with respect to that very day, as far as schedules go. However, they don't go into detail about Jesus, or even mention him, so why do I need any detail on this unfortunate reprobate George Floyd? Equal time, right?
America was a seriously religious country back in the day.
Peak Stupidity featured Alison Krauss long ago with another Gospel number, I'll Fly Away.
Then, thinking of the times ahead, there is this take on it:
This was likely the same episode of the British TV show, The Old Grey Whistle Test that had the Ozark Mountain Daredevils playing Jackie Blue, in which the drummer did the singing. That must have been a great show, as youtube has lots of my favorite musicians playing in that show. Peak Stupidity featured this band one other time, singing There's Beauty in the River.
I really meant to write a post about who's possibly behind all the organized Cult-Rev stuff, but that'll come first thing next week.
