2. It should be Rally 4 Justice and Peace. It is well understood by the Catholic Church that

in a context of oppression, no lasting peace can be established without a significant measure of justice. The two go together.

That so-called 'drugs war' was evidently initiated by the Republicans, in accordance with the dictum of St Augustine : 'When justice leaves a society, what are its leaders but mighty bands of robbers?'

3. So true, justice & peace are inseparable. We're losing justice but have many Robbers now as

St. Augustine knew. As bright as Prince is I figure he understands this well. His decision to perform a surprise Concert, like the one in Minnesota last week is critical now and an opportunity for art and unity.

It will be a terrific event- his performance, enthused fans in the great city of Baltimore. Springtime and on Mother's Day! The concert he gave that I saw years back is unforgettable!

6. That's the precise essence of it, to help heal many people in pain and desperate

conditions with little relief in sight. And to show the world that there is concern for the residents and the great city of Balto., once one of America's thriving industrial seaports and major urban centers since the early nation. Prince also held a surprise event in Minnesota, his home state, and Detroit in the last year, which he considers his second home.

Thirty years of de-industrialization via globalization, sending our factories overseas, an unemployment rate 50% in some areas of Balto., failed drug policy, crime and poverty. The joblessness, income inequality and newer extreme drug laws enable the incarceration of non violent offenders and warehousing the mentally ill for profit, in privatized prison workhouses, some with mandates of 90% occupancy.

It's an American nightmare and shame. This private prison system, slavery by another name movement has been active for 20 years and is much more entrenched than I realized. Shades of post Civil War peonage in the South and West, and in the Victorian and Edwardian Era with workhouses out of Dickens and like Charlie Chaplin experienced as a boy in London.

What's it going to take to begin to turn around the decay and blight, also in semi rural areas I don't know. But I do know that many of our legislators are just fine with how things are doing now and for the last couple of decades. On that doom note and rant, I hope you have a fine Spring Day today!

7. It was sunny yesteday, and it's sunny today, too.

As the NY taxi-driver said to his passenger, when caught in a long tailback, due to the Pope's arrival at the airport: 'This guy must have connections.' Maybe your are more exclusively spiritual, but you must have bent the divine ear!

Great to read your perceptive 'cri de coeur'. Seems we're on just about the same paragraph, as well as the same page, where anarchy in high places is concerned.
