“Eat the rich!”
Welcome back Dear Reader; and Happy August to you. While I have long maintained that happiness (as in: “the pursuit of...”) is highly overrated, I do sincerely hope that you are now and have been playing it cool... all the way; and I submit this small buffet of thought.
A quarter of a century ago, the phrase, “eat the rich” first entered my consciousness by way of a song which was written and recorded by one of America's truest originals. Though firmly cast in the archetypical mold of 'Man with a guitar', the artist known as, Blackberri can be considered one of the last pioneers – an openly gay, black feminist man.

The Truest Joy Is In The Knowing That: “God confronts the evildoers, to destroy all memory of them from the face of the earth.” This awareness seems to only come the hard way.

Pay attention to Comments below. In the meantime, please do dig the ancient and prophetic voice of, Blackberri & Friends: Finally, as they regale you with the stone soul picnic of, “Eat The Rich.” I've served it up on my very own Playlist, on my Main Page.
