Subject: RE: Why did John Henry hammer till he died?
No surprise there Hawk and I congratulate you. I'm thinking of closing the NYCFTTS though and I hate to overload the Shatner group, so just giving you a possible heads up.

Why? Let's say fuck Neil, even in jest, and the friggin' crazy horse he rode in on. Hard to miss the irony of having the writer of "Ohio" involved in this shit:

People for the American Way, which once described the goal of the PMRC censors as "to bring children and parents together on music selection," gave Neil Young its Spirit of Liberty award at a December 11 Beverly Hills banquet. Young used the occasion to proclaim his support of the USA/Patriot Act, which became law on October 26. "To protect our freedoms," Young said, "it seems we're going to have to relinquish some of our freedoms for a short period of time." I'm thinking of closing the NYCFTTS.

The CIA thing I joked about now sounds like an all too real possibility..........
