Clinton, as sleazy as he was with Monica, still has a ways to go to catch Cheetolini who was blackmailed by a porn star. And I will visit this exhibit. I love rock and roll, and this sounds interesting.

Mr. Greg Harris's claim that rock 'n' roll is the "sound of freedom around the world" raises the question of his definition of freedom. Much of the rock music of the Sixties popularized the small-c communist vision of the Port Huron Statement and opposed a war to contain Communism. This point is reinforced by having this exhibit named for a president who hated a war to contain Communism nearly as much as he did racism (see the draft letter to Col. Holmes). The abandonment of Indochina that this music advocated let to the reduction of South Vietnam's peasantry to abject peonage-they were exploited in the same manner as the black sharecroppers of Phillips County in 1919—and the enslavement of the nation of Cambodia. The latter shows that Mr. Harris has reversed Orwell; for him slavery is freedom. Call it "progressive" freedom.

Why don't you write about how Billy Jack Haynes gave a full confession on the Doc Washburn Show, 102.9 KARN-FM, to his, Bill Clinton's, Hillary Clinton's, Kirk Lane's, Jay Campbell's, and Dan Harmon's involvement in the 1987 Kevin Ives and Don Henry murders? Or is that too much of a complicated article to write? Who really cares about this rapist-murderer's library made for his brainwashed supporters?
