Take Me Back To Birmingham

If I had it all to do over again, I'd do it all over again. As this onion unpeels and merry old goes on her own again, the show explodes on cable TV. By this time next year we will have a woman or an orange-haired clown as president. This country and this world remain chockfull of bigots. The LGBT community has had enough and we're watching walls tumble in warp time.

Animal rights won't really be here until I'm long gone but at least I know their day is coming. Without being disrespectful to either hero, I recognize that Mickey Mouse is no Dr. King. All of the truth and all of the wisdom and all of the compassion are right there in the soulful gaze of any orangutan.

The information age has changed history as surely and as profoundly as the industrial revolution. In the meantime the military industrial complex and the NRA work hard to make certain that we don't move forward spiritually. 

Maybe the animal kingdom should consider giving us the boot.

  1. I'm thinking that radio brought the Information Age. The Internet has exaggerated it.
