Ok…I'll admit, I'm posting this here because I'm afraid of the wrath of the “Rules Committee”-types who control the orange zone. I don't need any more stress than I already have and I'm hoping you people are a little more accepting of creative license and will appreciate my effort.
Hunter S. Thompson is a gawd…period. I don't know if he worshipped The Noodles, The Sauce & The Holy Meatballs but I'm relatively sure he would have at least understood the concept and partaken in our particular brand of lunacy to point out the insanity of what is considered “normal” in this 230-year-old experiment we call democracy and the good ol' U.S.A.
Bearing that in mind I ask you all to consider this brief essay written by Mr. Thompson before his death in 2006 that could apply today and is my way of expressing myself. I agree with everything he says and if this is plagarism or “overuse” of another's writings in my “diary” than I guess I'm glad I'm writing an essay.
I'm sure you'll understand. As Always…Peace ;-)>

Something is happening here, but you don't know what it is. Do You, Mister Jones?-Bob Dylan
No sir, not a chance. Mr. Jones doess not even pretend to know what's happening in America Right now, and neither does anyone else.
We have seen weird Times in this country before, but the year 2000 is beginning to look super weird. This time there really is nobody flying the plane…We are living in dangerously weird times now. Smart people just shrug and admit they're dazed and confused.
