And That's The Way It Is

> Martin - Allo - Yes and yes - got the tea and Alex

> We have been in a vicious heat wave - looks like it
> breaks tomorrow - it was
> so hot I just stayed in Alex's place with the air

> I haven't even looked at e-mail this past week - now

> that's going on right now.
> The courts keep hounding me for jury duty - I don't

> war-fare and racism; the supreme court is Hitler and

> I know I am on a list somewhere, probably a few,

> And that's the way it is: Los Angeles Monday 22 June

Amen about our country becoming increasingly barbarous. I'll opt out of the revolution and move to Ibiza.

I adore the sixth stanza - the one about the US being barbaric and wanting to participate in the worst way.
