Thanks to Ken for posting this as part of the anti-trust discussion below. I adored Frank Zappa. One of the coolest moments in my life came when I was at a NY club, preparing to watch Cream circa 1967 - can't remember the club name (maybe the Au Go Go?). Anyway I was around 15, sitting on the aisle, when someone from the club asked me to move in one because Frank Zappa wanted to sit next to me, and he had very long legs. We watched the show together, in silence (to be honest, I was pretty initimidated). When it ended, he stood up, stretched, look down at me, and said "You're doing a great job entertaining the troops, kid. Keep it up."
To this day I'm not sure what he meant by "troops" except for one interesting fact - when most of the US was refusing to play my recording "Society's Child", Armed Forces Radio was playing it in heavy, heavy rotation all through Viet Nam.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.”
― Jim MORRISON

@edgarblythe,
The crimes of the U.S. throughout the world have been systematic, constant, clinical, remorseless, and fully documented but nobody talks about them.
--- Harold Pinter

Least of all, Edgar.

“There is a principal
which is proof against all information,
which is proof against all arguments,
which cannot fail to keep man in
everlasting ignorance;
that principal is -
Contempt prior to investigation !”

“The forces which are working out the great scheme of perfect happiness, taking no account of incidental suffering, exterminate such sections of mankind as stand in their way, with the same sternness that they exterminate beasts of prey and herds of useless ruminants.”

@farmerman,
We were just on the edge of it all. We received a few days of beneficial rain, while a spot like Winnie, to our east, received 40 inches in ten hours. One of those days we broke the record for rain on a single day in September.
