My patience with Islam and their total failure to denounce extremists is very nearly at the breaking point. They can have their Cordoba House, sure ... on the upper east side, maybe, but NOT within walking distance of the WTC, NO.
Ralph Towner's your favorite guitarist, eh? [grin!] The man DOES have a way with a six-string ... AND a 12-string, for that matter, eh? I presume you know his work with the ensemble, Oregon, eh? Me, I bin listening to Ralph and Oregon since 1976 ... and am a dirty-word ADDICT, so there!
Welcome back Shlarg. Seems you've been away for some time now.
Please consider joining my new group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.
I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.
This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only. Please check it out.
