The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

Willie Nelson

If you check my "What I'm Listening To" link today, you'll see "The Essential Willie Nelson". I'm going to go get a cup of coffee, put the CD into my office PC's CD disc player and have Willie serenade me while I work - it's a 2 disc set, so it should last a while.

I've always liked Willie and enjoyed his music and his persona, but I had never purchased a recording of his.

A couple of weeks ago law enforcement officials in Lafayette, LA decided they could make the world safer for democracy by boarding Willie's tour bus. Surprise, surprise - they confiscated 1.5 pounds of marijuana and .2 pounds of narcotic mushrooms. Well, I guess we could all sleep safer and feel secure for our kids now.

Immediately upon having this breaking news appear onthe CNN Newsbreaks I periodically get via e-mail, I went to Amazon.com and ouchased this CD set out of solidarity with Willie.

As Bill Maher said the other night in the "New Rules" segment of his show:
"Until we win World War III and crush the evildoers in what our president calls a "struggle for civilization" - all law enforcement people have to work on THAT, and not on busting Willie Nelson."
Rock on Willie!
