I guess he should have taken the Peace Train.
Ha ha, I laugh at my own joke.
Being a musician myself, I don't like hearing that Cat or Yusef can't
enter this country, but I guess this is one case where people can
identify with a muslim who can't get in anymore. If it's just a
regular joe muslim, no one cares, but if it's "Cat," people get
offended. It sheds light on the situation, I hope that good people
who are denied entry to the US stand up make themselves known.
But a lot of Americans are afraid, and they may not be inclined to
consider muslims as equals anymore, some I can hardly blame, others
are just afraid and don't care who their fear hurts. "We have
nothing to fear but fear itself" -when was the last time you heard
anyone say that? Modern politicians enjoy fear, it gives them
something to do.
Cat also wrote that Cheryl Crow song, "The First Cut Is The
Deepest." I really like that one.
