I’d like Buffy St. Marie to get off her old rich ass and write a song
Universal Beaurocrat or Universal Banker or Universal Billionaire or Universal Politician or Universal United Nations Dictator or Universal Arms Dealer or Universal Citizen

Rather than blaming the Universal Soldier

I’d like the 60’s singers and musicians to apologize for their lyrics of youth and naivety.  That would be the PC thing to do and I think all actors and producers should give have their income to the third world because there are no more ‘privileged people’ in the world than those in Hollywood.

I’m thankful that I have the ability to see my own self pity, fear and resentment and hopefully pray for a better attitude and see that god’s grace is all.  I’m so thankful for life even today with the dark clouds and dreary month of wet and chill
Thank you for all my teachers and thank you for all the opportunities.
