Should have Mickey & Billy

I dunno why I always put Mickey first 'cause Billy was an original member and Mickey came later. In any frickin' case, it would sure be nice if this band had kept Mickey & Billy and changed its name from The Dead to Furthur just like they changed from The Other Ones to The Dead prior to 2004 (or was it 2003? I posted the first The Dead show which I'm a-thinkin' (without looking it up) was 2-14-03 . . . sweet SBD with Sammy Hagar and Joan Osborne.)

John Kadlecik in the starring role as Jerry Garcia this go-around is somethin' I ain't a-too sure about 'cause I don't wanna be hearin' the Grateful Dead replicated. No sir. Look, Jerry's gone and nothin's gonna bring him back so I wanna hear these Grate songs done similarly while paying a Grate tribute to Jer. I don't wanna hear 'em the same as I have many times over. I know the fans (in general, according to the applause) LOVE hearing "Jerry" up there, but for me, while I dig the tunes, the clone just ain't right.

Anyway, clone or not, still some pretty good music. Mayhaps someday, if I'm still alive, I'll get to post the SBDs for folks. For now, check this out...

Republican Propaganda?

It's sad that people who watch Fox News are labeled as idiots. It's also sad that people have decided that Fox News is "predetermined biased crap." It's not. There are no orders from the top to let people only hear Republican points of view. They often (but not always) give viewers the other side of an issue which allows viewers to make up their own mind based on those two sides. Some people don't like that, they don't like that the general population hears the opposing point of view. If it was up to them, people would only hear what they want them to hear. Anything else is threatening to what they want and what's threatening must be bad and denounced. The ends justify the means -- denounce always, denounce drastically, even if it's not true. It doesn't matter if they lie about Fox News because they've accepted that's it's better to run with the lie and look down their noses at people who don't think their way. I have so much respect for people who can discuss in a civil manner. Unfortunately some people begin showing their elitism and feel it's perfectly fine to display meanness when it comes to anyone who thinks differently. That's not right.

And here's an example of "predetermined biased crap." It would make sense, according to some, that this guy talking would be preaching the Republican party line, right?

He's a Democrat.
