[Note to potentially pissed-off Muslims: Warren Zevon, who wrote this lovely song is already dead. So threatening him with a death fatwa will have even less effect on him than a death threat will have on me. Don't it make you want to rock and roll? —B.I.K. ]

Everybody's restless and they've got no place to go
Someone's always trying to tell them
Something they already know
So their anger and resentment flow

But don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio....  More >

by Bob Dylan - 1983

Well, the neighborhood bully, he's just one man,
His enemies say he's on their land.
They got him outnumbered about a million to one,
He got no place to escape to, no place to run.
He's the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully just lives to survive,
He's criticized and condemned for being alive.
He's not supposed to fight back, he's supposed to have thick skin,
He's supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in.
He's the neighborhood bully.

Then you must train your mind, eye and hand to the point of working and playing with ease, grace and precision."--Walter B. Pitkin

Labeling and labels,i.e., words, and the classifications and categories 'behind' them--as a human you cannot avoid these if you talk (and probably even when you don't talk).  More >
