To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Merle and Me at the Zoo

My daughter has a ticket waiting for me at the Portland Zoo for the Merle Haggard show!

Father's Day gift, June 21st, the Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts series.

Now I'm excited.  Seeing the legend for the first time.

I'll be checkin' the 10-day weather forecast...right now.

Bingo.  Mostly sunny, high of 85.

Man, maybe I'll tear off my shirt.  No, no, I hear it's a family venue.
