The David Crosby 'Vow of Hair'

Almost cut my hair......


After years of procrastination, I finally decided to take the Vow sometime during the fall of 2016. And yes, I still got hair, and it was just lying around (or blowing around or whatever hair does) and putting up with the occasional 'trim' which sometimes was disastrous and a general embarrassment.... "Hey professor; nice haircut". Now, all people can say is "he took the Vow", and wonder why the hell they went bald at age 35. 

I certainly don't know. Its a mystery.

The Vow does allow a certain latitude in your relationship with the hair-dresser person, and yes you can visit the hair-dresser but only under the following conditions: 

Your hair must be "annoying you", or, your significant other says the dreaded words, "you need a trim". 

Only these 2 conditions can compel you to visit the hair-dresser person, and according to the Vow, you must tell the hair-dresser person exactly these words: "You can cut my hair, but when I walk out of here, my hair must be longer than when I walked in".

The Vow is not to be taken lightly- its seriousness or gravitas is on the order of the sacred Vow of Weed, "Smoke 'em if you got 'em". 

In other words, "grow it if you got it".

the baby killers

“It crossed a lot of lines with me. When you kill innocent children – innocent babies – with chemical gas… that goes beyond red lines,” 
    -- Donald Trump
Is it a crime for states to slaughter innocent, defenseless people with savage weaponry, or is it not? Then condemn it, no matter who does it. Or is it only a crime if one of our “designated enemies” does it? Are the murdered children in Yemen less precious -- or less dead -- than the children in Syria? Where are the calls to "do something" to stop the criminal states killing children in Yemen? Instead we see liberal praise for Trump for "finally talking sense" when he threatens to escalate a war that the US and other nations have been cynically stoking for years.
