A view through the wheel. The black, horizontal line is the axle, the single largest forging to that time.

"From here to Eternity"

Paul Valery

"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

"When a young man, I read somewhere the following: God the Almighty said, 'All that is too complex is unnecessary, and it is simple that is needed',"

Mikhail Kalashnikov
"Here lies the bravest soldier I've seen since my mirror got grease on it."

June 25, 1971


Just gotta revisit one item...
To all the modern "Real American, God-Fearing and Gotta-Git-This-Country-Outen-The-Hands-Of-That-College-Boy" fellow travelers;
This song's taken.

Besides, it's geezer music.
The most recent (in my mind), ridiculous personage that invoked the sacred 1971 tune was around a year old when the single was released.
And, the point-of-view of this song would be opposite, nowadays, to yours... Oops.
But, I'm sure that the Neo-Cons can come up with some inspirational tunes...
And, I'm sure they'll be great!

"...For I know that the hypnotized never lie...
DO 'YA?"
