It's been a while since I've had time to read any of the local blogs. Tonight I was looking at the Bay Ridge Journal and the sad pictures of the dismantling of the Green Church.

But what struck me was at the very bottom of the blog - a You Tube video of Joe Strummer singing Minstrel Boy. Joe was a very big influence in my life. I saw The Clash play at a skating rink in Philadelphia. The sound was horrible but the energy and excitement from the stage was astonishing.

Joe left us far too early. Here's to the Journal for having the video on the blog.
“When you blame yourself, you learn from it. If you blame someone else, you don't learn nothing, cause hey, it's not your fault, it's his fault, over there.” - Joe Strummer
