Why can't we be friends?

Okay, time to dial it down. Hit the jake break. Lets take a breath and let clearer heads prevail. Just what in the hell have I been doing around here anyway?

I was talking to my friend Jim the pilot this morning at the "club" and he says I might as well get rid of the gallery and rename it the Helter Skelter Cafe for the tenor of the blog lately. Jim, I hate to say it, but you are right.

Jim's a straight shooter and as I look back at my recent production on the blog, my god I have to agree with him. Acid Rock, leftwing politics, a multitude of drug references, lurid sexual hi jinx, colored music, religious intolerance, occultism, conservative bashing, my list of subversion is about a mile long. A regular cyber caligula.

So time to take the blog back to where it all started, a forum where all points of view are welcomed. A big tent where all are family. Hey friend, can I buy you a cup of coffee?

i've waited for someone else to comment on the previous comment and am surprized no one has; not only is it not funny, if that was the writer's intent, it's ugly and offensive; frankly i don't understand why it was posted in the first place; i know some of my remarks rub folks the wrong way, but i like to think i don't stoop to this level.

I vaguely remember Welk doing an entire program devoted to 'Modern Spirituals' by the Fugs. If anyone has seen it on YouTube, let me know.

To Grumpy, from anon.
The rock n' roll religious self righteous 'know it alls' with no sense of humor offend me.
Maybe the reason nobody responded to the massa jim comment was because they got the sarcasm.

Maybe I should take your advice from awhile back and try my best Spanish on these people because they like us trying to speak Spanish.
