So, I shall venture into politics in this political season, which is something I seldom do. This article is about history - it is all about your point of view, isn't it?
Columbus Day is October 8, 2012. Let us all honor America as the Founding Fathers intended.
I know that we here on the vine prefer to get our jollies, stimulation and gestalt in little tiny bits, sound bites if you will, that catch our short little attention spans only for a moment. Then, we comment and then instantly move on to some other conversation that tickles our fancy. But I am an old fashioned sort of fellow who did listen to radio and to long playing comedy albums. This was one of my favorites.
Stan Freberg's album, Stan Freberg Presents The United States of America, was a long playing vinyl album and takes a while to take in. I hope you spend a few moments listening to this little piece of comedy. This was very popular in it's day.

I really enjoyed listening to this recording. Let's take an Indian to lunch this week. A real live Indian to lunch. The luncheon was, needless to say, a great success. We all had our minds set on roast eagle but we had turkey instead.
