The good, the bad and the ugly.

The Good:
There's Bob Dylan.... and there's a man called James McMurtry. He also pens good songs. Well i must admit i haven't listened to any of his other songs but for this one called 'We can't make it here'. It was only after reading a certain post by a Mr.Lefsetz that i actually heard of him and this song ~ It's good. It's true.

Will work for food
Will die for oil
Will kill for power and to us the spoils
The billionaires get to pay less tax
The working poor get to fall through the cracks
Let 'em eat jellybeans let 'em eat cake
Let 'em eat sh$%, whatever it takes
They can join the Air Force, or join the Corps
If they can't make it here anymore

The Bad:

Some bus conductors are bad... they try to take more than the fare on the charts. And this past week i've argued with three..with my broken Bengali. But i'd like to believe it was just an unlucky week. Most are good.
War is bad. Obama and change? i guess just a change in the battlefield.

The Ugly:
The Bhopal Gas Tragedy... : December 3, 1984. 25 years.....ugly

When people ask, "Why is the disaster continuing? Why has the factory not been cleaned? Why have Union Carbide and Dow not faced justice?", the answer is this: Union Carbide's victims are still dying in Bhopal because India itself is dying under the corrupt and self-serving rule of rotten leaders.
