So my uncle got a scholarship to Xavier and went to school with this guy and apparently knew him to some extent. I didn't find this out until late in his life so I wasn't able to ask him about the guy.

My mom met him and although very short (my moms words) thought he was a decent guy back in those days. I doubt there were any serious political or philosophical discussions though. My mom's side of the family was very pro labor and were all union members.

The funny thing is when he died she still wouldn't say anything too bad about him even though he was an obvious monster.
It's the Reagan thing. Privately, he was quite sincere in wanting to help anyone in need, but in his role as a public figure and as someone able to use vast institutional power, he set in motion awful, hurtful policies and helped normalize heartless behaviours. How do you ignore one for the other, either one or the other?

Good questions. In the end I tend to think he with his public persona and influence did way more harm than good. I started having the discussion with my mom but decided to let it go.

Had a dream last night that they were filming Big Audio Dynamite - The Movie in my hometown. Marky was the producer but had these huge fake teeth in. Maj was his right hand man, scurrying around the set.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I dreamed the Angels traded Trout and for some related reason I had to intentionally crash an elevator.

I had a dream the other night that VH told me he was anti-choice. I woke up really pissed at him.

Last night I dreamt that I was hired to redo animal taxonomy based on the example of a murder of crows. That is, all animals had to be arranged by crimes. So there was, like, an arson of chipmunks, an extortion of dolphins, a felonious assault of penguins. I was also working in a bare white room, at a single desk in front of a wall of filing cabinets.

I had a Planet of the Apes themed dream the other night. Strange braindump since I don't think I had seen or talked about that movie in quite a while. I lived in the side of a cliff in these hollowed-out rooms. Pleasant enough, except for the apes.
