Oh, I never doubted there was something going on over here, what it is
ain't exactly clear....

I did completely eschew cocaine when I first encountered it- way, way,
back in the nineteen sixties.... But, it was totally because I thought
the people using the cocaine were assholes, and they only got assholier
while under the influence. None for me, thanks, I said. I very nearly
became addicted to opium, and noticing this, stopped all drug use in '70.

And I've been there. Probably still am. But is this world without end? I
doubt it.

I've always liked "Got a long way to go, but I ain't goin'"

Ah, the harmonic convergence.... I still want the Neanderthal to come
back. Now _that_ was the real golden age.
