Don't Be A Living Fossil

I am a big Airplane fan (career as well as musical interest). So I was listening to some of what is available on the various video stores and came upon this "Crown of Creation" version from 1968. It is really good. It is done live not lip synched.

So I'm listening to the words. And I'm thinking of how very many of my compatriots are stuck in 1968. Not just in their musical tastes, but also in their view of the world.
You are the Crown of Creation
You are the Crown of Creation
and you've got no place to go.

Soon you'll attain the stability you strive for
in the only way that it's granted
in a place among the fossils of our time.

In loyalty to their kind
they cannot tolerate our minds.
In loyalty to our kind
we cannot tolerate their obstruction.

Life is Change
How it differs from the rocks
I've seen their ways too often for my liking
New worlds to gain
My life is to survive
and be alive
for you.
Which pretty much sums up how I feel about my former lefty comrades and brothers and sisters.

If you are not a lefty at 20 you have no heart. If you are still a lefty at 40 you have no head. Recent events at Virginia Tech show that where there is a will to resist lives can be saved. Flight 93 is another such lesson. And hard lessons they are. If you want peace be prepared to fight. Peace at any price comes with a very high price tag. First you will pay for peace and in the end you will not have it.
