No Peace Plane
It's been a long week. I'm working on a new page design, my email has been down and I've not been feeling well, but I can't help commenting on the recent debacle with Cat Stevens. Unbelievable, yet entirely true to form for this administration on so many levels, from name association, to implied racism, to peace activism and the encompassing cultures of all entwined.
Yes, I'm a fan. I believe I have every album he ever recorded on vinyl or CD. A person who writes like that could never lose the values that inspired it, regardless of name change or religion change. I am again embarrased and ashamed that the government of my country has become so mindless and fanatical.
recorded some covers of his music. Here are some I found: all mp3's
Morning Has Broken
On The Road
and an experimental medley: Space/Into White
Remember who we are.
UPDATE: The Dynamic Driveler
doesn't think I should have such a high opinion of Cat Stevens. Maybe he's right
. I'm probably guilty of ignoring negative news or of being too busy to pay attention at the time.
