Alice's Restaurant

Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday. Land grab by imperialistic europeans - slaughtered our indigenous people and then celebrated over dinner. So I will skip the holiday greeting on this one and instead give you the best part of the season - the tradition of listening to Alice's Restaurant. Enjoy --

3. My first exposure to this

was a live-in-studio radio performance before the album was released. One of my favorite memories. Thanks for the reminder.

5. This was introduced to us

when my brother brought it home following his last of three tours in Viet Nam. I always think of him when I hear it. Appropriately, his birthday sometimes falls on Thanksgiving.

9. Yeah - that's a damned shame.

I read that he's libertarian & a registered member of the repug party. There's an argument right there against inherited $$$ ...

11. Sort of

He's a registered Republican, but he's hinted a few times on his website (which has something resembling a blog/forum section) that he doesn't support Republican policies. For one thing, he's made numerous statements in support of unions and refuted a rumor that he refused to join one. He also posted a pretty lengthy defense of the Occupy movement a couple years ago that attacked the idea that government should be privatized.

That being said, he's said some pretty odd/conflicting things in the past. My suspicion is that he may be closer to our side than the others, but has nowhere near the political knowledge of Woody.
