    Some of my earliest "musical" memories are from the Woodstock album.  My dad had it and would play it.  His off the cuff playing at the beginning of the concert to basically stall was the sign of a true musician and artist.  The visual is even more amazing. He was up and moving around...the sweat has soaked through his clothing.  The music builds to a crescendo.

    The other thing I really remember from that album listening to it as a young kid was the Country Joe and the Fish set in which he leads the audience in spelling "FUCK."  Give me an F!...Whats that spell?!  I can still hear it in my head. It wasn't until years later that I learned it was actually modified from the "Fish Cheer."

    The sequester is the new Republican immigration reform plan. Make things so bad here in the US that no one will want to live here.
