Pieces of our past are fading...RIP

Didn't know that he was sick.
Unconventional wisdom is seldom either.

Every time you think you've become too cynical, the world finds a way to teach you that the real problem is that you haven't become cynical enough

Free speech is free speech is free speech. There is no qualifier.

If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention.

Never attribute malice to that what can be explained as stupidity.

Unborn lives matter too.

Very sad! One of the all time great guitarists.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it

Great player - revolutionized rock guitar.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile

I'm crying so hard now.
Heard them first in highschool, 1978... In 1980 unchained was my wakeup song. Had my amp, turntable on a light timer! Set it up every night before bed... Arrrgh! My dreams of a vanhagar reunion are dashed. RIP King Eddie!
