Almost forgot to post this. Today would have been Sir Winston O'Boogies 82nd Birthday.

Most of us have seen the scene from 2019's Yesterday....

But have you seen "Snodgrass" by the BBC?

San Antonio, TX (in the old city)

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

The last thing I spoke to my dad about was John's unfortunate death a couple of days earlier.

A couple of days later, my dad closed his first business deal since his major open heart surgery about a year earlier, and after taking my mom out to celebrate, the patch in his ventricle wall from that surgery blew out shortly after the folks got home. Pops was dead before the paramedics arrived..... from barely two blocks away.

Since 1980, my dad and John have been inexorably connected, and every time John's name comes up, I can't help but think of my dad.
