On this day

“Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.”

Jerry Garcia
Born August 1, 1942

I only went to about 250 Dead shows between 1967 and 1995, so I'm sure he had no influence on who I am. Over at Kiko's House, Shaun has a nice round-up of Jerry's bio.

Never been to a show, but the remaining members of the Grateful Dead perform regularly at a nearby venue, Ashkenaz.

For some reason it hasn't been my vibe, except when it is for brief instants of clear understanding.

There were moments when the music made the world make sense. The rest of it was dancing.
