Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Snowblind Friend

Stop. Take a moment.

An exquisite Hoyt Axton song. Steppenwolf covered it best:





Words and music by Hoyt Axton

You say it was this morning when you last saw your good friend

Lyin' on the pavement with a misery on his brain

Stoned on some new potion he found upon the wall

Of some unholy bathroom in some ungodly hall

He only had a dollar to live on 'til next Monday

But he spent it on some comfort for his mind

Did you say you think he's blind?

Someone should call his parents, a sister or a brother

And they'll come to take him back home on a bus

But he'll always be a problem to his poor and puzzled mother

Yeah he'll always be another one of us

He said he wanted Heaven but prayin' was too slow

So he bought a one way ticket on an airline made of snow

Did you say you saw your good friend flyin' low?

Flyin' low

Dyin' slow

I had no idea Hoyt wrote that song. It's probably my favorite by Steppenwolfe, even ahead of Born To Be Wild.

Thanks for sharing the video. It really suits my mood these days.
