Be sure to listen to the song in the last video, it was local hit back in the late 60's, one I hadn't heard in years..................:P

PS, I once smoked a "dube" with John Sinclair.................:)

So you got John Sinclair busted. And it took Lennon to get him out.

No........This was a few years back.

He's a poet you know.

I went to a reading.

I thought he was busted and freed after the big Lennon concert/song.

nice trip down memory lane ... Thx shooz ... .... it does seem that those times are beginning to reappear

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Those times never disappeared. They're just being dealt with in a different manner, and now real live tyranny has come to Detroit.

As the repression increases, it may be time to rethink our tactics

There are many wounds that need to be healed to get the UNITY we need

But without that, we will continue to live in "tyranny"

Just sayin

I posted this to show, in an approachable way, that Detroit has been an open wound to the psyche of the nation for a long time, and yet even now they try and squeeze another pint of blood.

You talking about unity is like George Bush talking about intelligence.
