". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard - "It's All Going to Pot"

Willie and Merle released "It's All Going to Pot" earlier this week in honor of both International Marijuana Day and Earth Day.  It's adorable.

Nashville so needs to have these guys on the series,  doing this song.  Maybe it could be at a Luke Wheeler sponsored benefit to raise Teddy's bail when the feds finally bust him?
