What's Niel Young done for us lately?

He always drapes himself with the American flag but I don't think he is a Veteran.

Yasgar's Fram !

We who were only teens on the tail end of the baby boom, on the back side of the killer wave, can only lament that th crest of the wave messed up the world and we are the hindmost tit.

    Re:"the wave" .. made me think of this poem.

    A Dream Within A Dream

    Take this kiss upon the brow!

    And, in parting from you now,

    Thus much let me avow-

    You are not wrong, who deem

    That my days have been a dream;

    Yet if hope has flown away

    In a night, or in a day,

    In a vision, or in none,

    Is it therefore the less gone?

    All that we see or seem

    Is but a dream within a dream.

    I stand amid the roar

    Of a surf-tormented shore,

    And I hold within my hand

    Grains of the golden sand-

    How few! yet how they creep

    Through my fingers to the deep,

    While I weep- while I weep!

    O God! can I not grasp

    Them with a tighter clasp?

    O God! can I not save

    One from the pitiless wave?

    Is all that we see or seem

    But a dream within a dream?

    ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    Neil Young is Canadian by birth. He wasn't eligible for the Vietnam War Draft. Canada did not send any troops to Vietnam, although some Canadians did volunteer on their own. He did not perform at Woodstock in 1969. Crosby, Stills and Nash did, but Neil had not joined them yet. He is 68 years old so his touring has probably slowed down a bit. I imagine he spends most of his time on his Caribou Ranch in Colorado. I would love to see him in his prime playing songs from his After the Gold Rush Album.

    Although Neil Young is likely as well known for his activism in the U.S. as for his music --- he's an environmentalist, an advocate for the welfare of small farmers (Farm Aid), and helped found The Bridge School, an educational organization for children with severe verbal and physical disabilities --- I've never known him to 'drape himself in the American flag'! He is actually a CANADIAN.
