Thread Name: What Have You Learned From Mudcat in '99
Subject: RE: What Have You Learned From Mudcat in '99
I learned that Clinton never told a lie
I learned that soldiers seldom die
I learned that everybody's free
Except when we share their songs with thee
I learned that lawyers are my friends
I learned that justice never ends
I learned that plagiarist die for their crimes
Even if we make a mistake sometimes
I learned that war is not so bad
I learned about the great ones we have had
We fought in Seattle and the Balkans too
Mostly to save the face of a few
I learned that our government must be strong
Always right and never wrong
Our leaders are the finest men(?)
And so elect them again and again, and again, and again
And that's what I learned at the Cat this year,
That's what I learned at the Cat.

Sorry y'all. Before I was done reading the first post of this thread, this song came into my mind, and I just had to share it.
Nevertheless, I really did learn that Mudcat is truly a great community! Thanks for letting me a small part.
