I like how the Quakers came by their name, out of a show of disrespect. Keeping on a hat. Not taking off a hat before a King. Thank you Mr. Penn. Its cool that someone would stand before a King and sorta, in a way say something that means, there are things greater than the simple rules you make, and the powers you've granted yourself. and in a way it leads me to Eugene Chadbourne, "how can you can kill me, I'm already dead". That my soul, it lives by my rules.
so many times I just get happy holding up a middle finger. and others, simple compassion, and a helpful nudge to someone, in a bit of need. a hand on the lower back, and like a small push up a hill.
cheers, F U. D. Lowe
