And Now, For Something Completely Different

Back in the early days of Saturday Night Live, Paul Simon showed up as the host, dressed in a turkey suit, and started the show singing “Still Crazy After All These Years”. Midway through the song, he stopped saying “this is not working. I told them it wasn’t going to work. Then they said to me, What? Do you want to be Mr. Alienation all your life? (for those of you who are Paul Simon fans you know his songs, like “Sounds of Silence,” “I am a Rock,” “American Tune,” and “Slip, Sliding Away” were songs of hopelessness and alienation).” So Simon continues “Well, I didn’t want to be Mr. Alienation…” so there he was, in a turkey suit, on national television.

Some of my friends have told me my blogs on the Flash Report are too doom and gloom. Well, to paraphrase Paul Simon, I don’t want to be Mr. Doom and Gloom, so I give you something completely different than my usual blog. Please forgive the cross cultural references from my younger days (Monty Python and Saturday Night Live), but I think you will enjoy this, and it will only take a minute of your time. From our friends at the Freedom Defense Fund… The Lying Adventures of Phil and Billary … just cut and paste below.
