Lunatic Fringe, In The Twilight's Last Gleaming...
"...this is open season, but you won't get too far.."
This song is decades old, decades. Check the lyrics; it's frightening.
My heart goes out to the families of those wounded and killed in Arizona, in this bizarre and senseless tragedy. It rings close to home for me, a minor elected public official, as well as the shooting at a Florida school committee meeting several weeks ago.
How did we come to this, America? What happened to principled dissent? What happened to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"? I am so frightened and disheartened by where we are headed.
I should have been writing about David Bowie, or Elvis, or my brother-in-law who shares their birthday, but instead, I'm watching the news in horror, and this is the only song that makes sense today.
