Nada reminded me of her penchant - and her considerable talent -for songs and singing.Today, on her blog, she recalled this one:

"come on people now smile on your brother everybody get together & etc..."

This was, in fact, one of my favorite 60's songs. Years ago Toni and I went to see the lead singer of the group that recorded it... He had become kind of slick, short haired, pale, and sang songs about his divorce. But by then we were used to the almost complete evaporation of the 60's spirit. With a little bit of luck and a lot of protests maybe a similar spirit will make its way back here, who knows? If Marianne Shaneen's attitude is any indication, the signs are good.
