King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man

Enjoy one of the finest from King Crimson.

This one has a habit of getting taken down quickly so enjoy while you can...



Cat's foot iron claw
Neurosurgeons scream for more
At paranoia's poison door
Twenty first century schizoid man

Blood rack, barbed wire
Politicians' funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man

Death seed blind man's greed
Poets starving, children bleed
Nothing he's got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man

The Great Gig In The Sky - Pink Floyd - Claire Torry, Vocals

And I am not frightened of dying
Any time will do, I don't mind
Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime
If you can hear this whispering you are dying

My Quarantine Anthem.



I love Derrick T. Tuggle's energy (he is an actor and security guard) and the song is great too...

Back in the late 70's in high school, I had a job as a Nurses Aide. I wanted to be a Nurse.

I had a couple of easy posts in some not so bad areas of the Hospital and thought it was a good choice. Then I spent a stint helping in the ER. One night a guy came in with his hand on his back. He said he needed a DR. "Real Quick Like".

We all kind of looked at him and he looked healthy except for his odd posture with his hand on his back. We asked why?

"I've been stabbed." he replied.

Immediately, the nurses rushed over to him and helped him to a room and called a Dr. The Dr. walked in and asked him where he had been stabbed. I was standing a good six fee away when he removed his hand and said "right here". The blood shot out covering the Dr. and a nurse. The knife must have struck an artery. The Dr. did not even flinch he just put his hand out and covered the wound and proceeded to help the man to the bed. I was in shock. Blood was everywhere.

It was no longer a fun job. It was real and it was scary. I knew I was not cut out for it. Not because of the blood. Just because I was so emotional and could not act when confronted with a shocking emergency. Sure, I was young and new at this, but I knew.

To say a Dr or a Nurse or all the support staff, like nurses aides and phlebotomist and lab people are heroes during this time is correct, but lets face it, THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HEROES.

It is criminal that hospitals, grocery workers, line workers in plants are not being given the support they need from our government.

It is criminal that our government is stealing supplies out of the hands of the states and hospitals that have purchased them.

It is criminal that Dump continues to lie and is never held accountable.

It is criminal that Senate Republicans have given him a pass and are silent while he tweets treasonous calls to rally his useful idiots around his flag of death and destruction.

It is criminal.

So he just said that he is going to let some states open sooner than May.

"Numerous states that are in great shape, right now".

"They're viewing the rest of the country as we don't believe this is happening".

"They're set to open, practically now".

Is he insane? So he is going to open half the country and then what?

wtf...this guy is crazy.
