Random surfing of the internet yields some pretty cool finds once in a while. I just stumbled across this very cool blog, and I like what little I have read so far. For example, with regard to the recent election, Mr. Barlow has the following insight with which I wholeheartedly agree:
“At the very least, I need to take the other side (Republicans, presumably) seriously. Dismissing them as a bunch of homophobic, racist, Bible-waving, know-nothing troglodytes, however true that may be of a few, only authorizes them to return the favor. I don’t want somebody calling me a dope-smoking, fag-loving, one-worlder weirdo, however true that might be. We are all masks that God wears, whatever God that is. We might try to treat one another with according reverence. At least we might try to listen as though the other side might have a point.I truly think we all owe one another an apology.”
I am really looking forward to sinking my teeth into more of Mr. Barlow’s writing. Not that I am a stranger to it now, what with “Black-Throated Wind” being one of my all-time favorite Dead numbers.
