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.

    "So I walk like I'm on a mission, 'cuz that's the way I groove. I've got more and more to do, I've got less and less to prove. It took me too long to realize that I don't take good pictures 'cuz I have the kind of beauty that moves..." Ani D.
