It's so quiet in my house with my wife away…writing for this blog was something I wanted to do. However, there's little to write: We all know of the nation's politics – awful, just plain awful. I could speak of the Republican debate, but it was too unbelievable to even consider: An audience applauding letting someone die if the person had no money to pay for treatment.
What kind of world has this become?
I was born in '43 and actually remember the 50s when I was a real kid. The 60s I remember well, when I really learned to play blues and folk – I was never one to smoke or use drugs. It never appealed to me, so I do remember the 60s.
I do not recall, however, the population being so, well, stupid, poorly read and badly informed, to say nothing of uncaring.
