The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

What a weird country

Seriously folks, is it just me or has El Norte gone completely nuts?
"Corporations are people, my friends."  "Pepsi, Pepsi, Pepsi."  Just like the old SNL skit.  No matter what you want, you know what you're gonna get.... or not get if you are thinking birth control, living wages, unions, etc.

Believe me, if the Mexican courts did stuff like this people would be in the streets, which they do do and they are.... not that it makes any difference.  Their beliefs outweigh the facts.  We must acquiesce to our betters, our overlords, the 1% and now, even more, corporations.  We would not want to hurt their feelings. 

This Supreme Court, uh... er.... thank God, they are not activists.  I know they all wrote about the danger of activist judges, so it can't be them.  They would never undo years of legal precedent.  They're merely "umpires," right?

Irony has had a miraculous recovery, as ISIS simultaneously established a caliphate, you know, where religion tops all.
