rock 'n' roll reunion

It's time to send the final version of A Sixties Story to dog ear, my self-publisher. Doing the final tweaking of my book brings back so many memories and on the social networking sites many of us are back in touch. So many years ago we lived our sixties lives and now we are all adults.

Here are a few of us last fall at The Abbey in Chicago for the 60s and 70s music reunion. Maybe you recognize Fred Glickstein (second from right). He played with the group The Flock, that recorded in the 60s and 70s and played on the same bill with many of the major groups of the day. The four of us in the photo went to high school together.

I am so heartened by the effect pressure from online activists is having on the political process. We are all still here and have found a way to be heard. So far, people are still the only ones allowed in the voting booths. The Supreme Court hasn't let corporations vote yet.
