[livejournal.com profile] sturgeonslawyer morphed [livejournal.com profile] papersky's Kent town meme to choose places closer to home here in California.

He says I'm Yreka, the county seat of Siskiyou County. Pity, I've never been up there; the farthest north I've gotten is Lake Shasta. I actually do know somebody from there, but the operative words are "from there". I am amused that Yreka is pivotal in the on-again off-again movement to split off from the rest of California (we're hopeless southerners here in the Bay Area). And according to the Wikipedia article, there isn't actually a palindromic Yreka Bakery there (somebody should fix that!).

post lyrics to an antiwar song...

The first song that came to my mind was "War". All hail Edwin Starr. It was appropriate when I was a kid, and unfortunately, again today.

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely (nothing), ah, ha, ha, ha
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely (nothing)
Say it again, y'all
War, huh, look out!
What is it good for?
Absolutely (nothing)
Listen to me
War I despise
'cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War means tears to thousands of mother's eyes
When their sons go out to fight and lose their lives
I said, war, huh, good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely (nothing)
geh, say it again
War (Huh)
Woh, woh, woh, woh
What is it good for?
Absolutely (nothing)
Listen to me
War, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ah, war is an enemy of all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die ? Ah....
War, good God, y'all
What is it good for ?
Absolutely (nothing)
Say it, say it, say it
War, ah ha yeah, huh,
What is it good for?
Absolutely (nothing)
Listen to me
War, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker
War, got one friend that's the undertaker
Ah, war has shattered many a young man's dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much too short and precious
To spend fighting wars each day
War can't give life
It can only take it away
Ahh ,war, (Huh)
Good God y'all
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
(War, huh)
Woh, woh woh, Lord,
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me
War, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker, oh
Peace, love and understanding, tell me
Is there no place for them today?
They say we must fight to keep our own freedom
But Lord knows there's gotta be a better way
Ahh ,war, (Huh)
Good God y'all
What is it good for?.......
