The Analog Kid is off to Manhattan so that I can attend my 179th consecutive Texas Longhorns football game. If that sounds exciting, I suppose I should clarify that I am traveling to the Manhattan in Kansas, not the one in New York City. I am leaving a little early in order to spend some time with relatives, so the blog will be back on Monday after I return. In the meantime, I present one of the true pearls of wisdom set forth by the illustrious Bill S. Preston, Esquire, and Ted “Theodore” Logan (via Kansas): “All we are is dust in the wind, dude.”
Kansas: “Dust In The Wind” (Kerry Livgren)
From the album Point Of Know Return
Kirshner/Epic Records, 1977
My Brother (Chris) was part of the set list committee for the Danbury Hatters (Connecticut) in 1978, and was “booed” off the panel for some Kansas picks.Yet, it was perfect for the riots raised in the first week of school. They should have listened. Unbelievable.
We could not escape from that Dem state fast enough (December 1978) with people throwing rocks at our car (Texas Plates) on the way out. I myself was beat up everyday because I wore Dallas gear, Rough times. Learned how to fight. Lovely foliage though, and some decent folks.not native to the area. LOL
