Subject: [DHBIS] Chris Stein note

basically, I'll be back, it's not like I (we) ever went anywhere but the country, the time, have until now not caught up to itself, Bill has said of America (not a direct quote) that it's "the betrayal of the greatest dream in human history..." please don't take this the wrong way, it's said in a spirit of bitter, sad irony, not anger or anti- American sentiment, he and I love it here, disappointment, rampant anti-intellectualism, Bond vs. Rambo, think it out; "Nerds", why is it bad to be smart? so the brute [bully] wins? this is good? nice? whatever. So we are here, U.S.A.,[fill in your city & state] the earth, the galaxy, the universe etc. with that big empty hole in the middle of the culture, the one that's filled with violence, drugs, poverty, aids, the lack of faith, "money is your god", the lack of family. I often wonder where the half-million who were at woodstock are. But I really know: they're lawyers, real estate, used and new cars, aluminum siding. How could we [MY GENERATION] do this to you!? What happened to our heart, guts, not to mention principles, honor, word,? ME GENERATION ME GENERATION ME ME ME ME ME GENERATION emptyemptyemptyemptyemptyemptyempty,
