Where the Truth Lies
A very fine Internet crank passed away the other day. John "Birdman" Bryant. His website has some pithy observations about truth in the abstract. However, when he applied them to certain subjects... watch out. Not for the easily offended. And yes, my ox got gored too upon occasion.
I was run over by the truth one day
Ever since the accident I've walked this way
- opening lines to Adrian Mitchell's poem, To Whom it May Concern. A counterculture classic from the counterculture decade. From time to time, YouTube has a clip of him reciting it in the Albert Hall. Very groovy, to borrow a phrase of the day. Adrian Mitchell passed away last December.
