    ...but FORWARD logic.

    Was it all that open air nuclear testing in the 50s? The benzine in the water supply? The DDT from mosquito abatement projects? What the hell happened to this country that brought up 3 generations of profound stupid? And how did most all of it end up absorbed in the brains of conservatives?

    Forget cancer research, people. We need to pool all our medical research resources to find a cure for this before the human race implodes.

      That's the only way I can describe it

      Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

        as a musician I personally wouldn't use that reference because it detracts from the musical brilliance of Fagan and Becker's work, but I can sure understand why someone would --- at least with circular logic you always know where you came from and where you're going ;-}

          who I like very much. "Pretzel logic" just seems to be the only terms that adequately describes the twisted nature of their thinking, since many people wouldn't understand "Klein bottle logic", wihch would be apropos because Klein bottles are simultaneously twisted, one-sided, and impossible in our physical reality.

            a point of reference for the children who read this thread. I do like the Klein bottle logic reference though.

              i mean, for crying out loud, there are college graduates reading this blog for whom Madonna, Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, Queen and Nirvana are basically ancient history, music that was popular before they were even born.

                to the days of early Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, the formative Grateful Dead, Neil Young (hell, for that matter, Buffalo Springfield), Creedence, the Doobies and the Who. Would even occasionally dip my toes into Byrds and the Spoonful. Lots more there that by today's standards would probably be regarded with the equivalent literary consideration as cave paintings.

                Boy, can I relate.

                  The earliest groups I remember being aware of were people like Peter, Paul and Mary and The Kingston Trio, and then on to The Beatles, the Stones, The Who, The Zombies, Dave Clark Five, the Guess Who  and on and on and on . . .

                  OK, time for me to go dig out some of my old friends and pretend it's 1967 all over again.
