One of my all time favorite albums is "Pink World" by Planet P Project which came out in 1984 (38 years ago). I think the creator, Tony Carey, learned well from The Who, Pink Floyd, and ELO as far as music telling a story through a double album.
Lately a line from one of the songs, A Letter From The Shelter, has been stuck in my head. It goes:
When a madman gets a gun
He's gonna point it at someone
If it's up in texas tower
Or over there across the pond
And if you step on his pride
Or if he hurts somewhere inside
He might let one fly
When his nerves are gone
This 38 year old story is about a nuclear war that leaves only a chosen few alive who follow a little boy, a boy who can not talk. Again, it's one of my favorite LP's but remember it's a double and takes some time to get through. That being said I think every song on this LP fits perfectly together to tell the story.
Putin is a mad man with a very big gun and the pictures I see on the news makes me sick to my stomach. As the father of a military daughter I hope we don't get involved. If we do I hope we don't piss around. It took a nuclear weapon to save a countless number of lives once before and it may take another dropped on the Kremlin to stop this mad man.
I want everyone reading this to know that my heart hurts from seeing the Russian soldiers lying dead on the road as it does for the Crimean people. This is all because of one mad man, even many in his own nation are protesting right in Moscow at this time.
