Crystal Gayle & Muppets – River Road
An evening pause: As I have said before, it is very important to be silly once in awhile.
Hat tip Edward Thelen.
Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!
From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

“important to be silly once in awhile.”
The muppets are NOT silly!
Crystal Gayle was one of my favorite female performers, (as well as just about every other female performer.) I think it may have had something to do with her incredibly long hair…
For a while, The muppet show was the high water mark of every actor or singer’s career. I was heartbroken when Jim Henson died.He had a type of genius rarely seen.
I grew up with the muppets. Jim Henson was indeed a genius. Entertainment for the sake of entertainment, not pushing an agenda (although that frog/pig thing was kinda weird).
