As a tribute to Leonard Nimoy and the enduring character he played, Mr. Spock, this weekend’s music thread is about about space, clips from science fiction films and tv series and any other songs dedicated to this unforgettable actor.
Racism blinds those who practice it. Republicans continue to chase after it with a mindless enthusiasm, not recognizing that it is actually a lemming leading them right off the edge of a political cliff.
Why not ship the oil to the nearest refinery and distribute it from there? We don’t need to put a pipeline across one of our biggest aquifers. Both North and South Dakota have refineries.
The Academy Awards are coming up so what better theme for this weekend than music from movies? There’s no music like show music, share the songs from your favorite movies and let’s go on with the show!

Unfortunately, since religion is such a minefield for politicians, Americans have become accustomed to disassociating religious extremists from their religion so as not to offend mainstream religious voters.
Happy Valentines Day!

A lot of tough questions have to be addressed if we are to have a real conversation about race. And all of us have to face realities without excuses.
As a 21st Century Will Rogers, Stewart has spoken truth to those in power with an astoundingly consistent and brilliant wit and much to his own surprise, became the primary source of news for a generation.
Roy Moore’s resemblance to George Wallace is very striking. Both justified their hateful prejudices as moral and democratic imperatives, warned of terrible consequences from not sustaining their bigotry and both made sweeping, dictatorial-styled edicts.
Guys in Vietnam (I talk from experience about Nam) saw buddies wounded or killed. Many of us helped get them on choppers to get medical help. Most of us had to shoot enemy soldiers. Believe me that is not easy for some of us. I know it haunts me. It goes against human nature to kill other human beings. Oh, there are some people who like killing, no doubt. But I think most folks do not enjoy taking life from another human.
In a week when Republicans campaign for the good old days of measles epidemics and Black Plague (“We should have the freedom to choose whether or not we become lepers!”), this week’s music thread is totally sick…well…about feeling sick or feeling good. So share your songs about being sick in […]
