Did you see this portrait of Neil Young on the nytimes website? Such a badass. Unapologetic truthteller. Does it seem like truth is elusive these days? In 1970, Neil Young wrote Ohio in a day, after learning of the Kent State Massacre. A Gallup Poll at the time found that 58 percent of those polled felt the students who were murdered were at fault! And 50 years later he’s naming what is good and true, standing up to charlatans, utterly clear-eyed in the face of our despairing zeitgeist. Keep rockin man, and thanks for being my guru this morning.
