No honeymoon for Il Duce—
Note to self: yo, numb-nuts, you missed out on joining the local march because you weren’t paying attention. Keep a better ear to the ground in the future, nimrod, because this is exactly the sort of thing I want to add my two cents to.
But this put a smile on my face after yesterday’s gloom. We are a very large and noisy conglomeration of people, and that’s exactly what we need right now.
Some songs for the resistance-
Perhaps I am showing my age in that most of these songs are from fifty to sixty years ago, the last time we were in serious need of marching songs. Perhaps we need a new generation to write the anthems of the new resistance. Nevertheless, these still speak to me, especially Pete Seeger’s interpretation of We Shall Overcome, which breaks my heart every time I listen to it. Take heart from this music, and do what you can.
