Mystic outlaw seeks passage to bubbly London!

~~~

1st London dispatch:

When the filthy rich bargain successfully for less and less taxes ~ and the poor multiply and get more and more poor ~ somebody has got to lose.

“But not I,” says Road, who is another poor boy on the block.  Then he hollers, “Riot!”

And a thousand voices answer.

It seems about 1,200 people, mostly young folks, were arrested for rioting-related causes in London earlier this dog-month of  August.  I don’t know too much about London, that’s for sure.  But where I’m from, August is the hottest month of the year.

The young American outlaw, Road, from the bygone anti-war days of the Vietnam War, is seeking passage to London via an olde short novel.  He doesn’t want to foment riot, but to spice the riotous town with, well, more pizazz than it undoubtedly already has…

About Rawclyde!

I have employed a few pen names throughout the years. Rawclyde with an exclamation mark (!) is the one too sticky to go away... Came of age at Crawford High, San Diego, CA ~ writing sports, a column, & playing football ~ graduated in '68... Attended SDSU for a couple years... Hit the road in a '56 Chevy milk-truck, a "studymobile," filling up notebooks & working as a laborer in the southwest... Practiced the genteel art of fiction for several years in my hometown... Enlisted in the U.S. Army ~ they made me a newsman in Hawaii ~ wrote another column for a while... Attended more courses at SDSU ~ studied novel writing with Professor Charlie Brashers... Sold books out of an '85 Ford one-ton van, a "book mule," in the desert... Did some writing in an old hotel in Prescott AZ... Have written & self-published 9 or so books ~ many of which are hiding out on the cyber highway...

    The youngsters have all gone home now, it’s started to rain…
    London has a long history of rioting, going back hundreds of years. Politicians seem to forget that and think it’s a new thing. Plus the police were so slow to react, they aren’t the brightest bunch in the world, they have to be told what to do, no initiative.
    Hope you are well and writing.

      Thank you. I hope you’re well and not working too hard in that real world beyond ~ The Blog! And thank you also for reining me over to the side of the trail for a little history lesson. You “popping by” just now is definitely a good omen for ~ Road’s trip to London !!!

    When I ask folks if there is an Obama in 2012 Campaign Headquarters in Prescott they look at me as if I’ve been ingesting illegal substances. Seriously though, is anything being done in Prescott or surrounding communities to help ensure that the Tea-Party does not gain control?

      Here’s the address to the Yavapai County Democratic Party website:

      http://www.yavdem.org

      These folks should be able to tell you what you want to know.

      The Prescott Democratic Party headquarters used to be located downtown. I used to visit them now and then when they were thus located, but they’ve moved here:

      Yavapai County Democratic Party
      1555 Iron Springs Rd.
      P.O. Box 1644
      Prescott, AZ 86302

      phone number: 928-541-0413

      And I don’t have a car. Also, I’m the only one who backs Obama in my present little community, U.S. Vets at the VA, so I can’t find a ride.

      If anything is being done around here, it probably isn’t enough. Maybe the best thing to do is talk to the Tea Party folks and see if you can’t get them to acknowledge that the rich upper-crust of our nation is leading them by the nose, that if the House Republicans don’t compromise on job bills and taxing the filthy rich they’re going to wreck the country, and that the right wing has to admit the need for a left wing cuz the eagle ain’t flying anywhere without two wings flapping together. Of course, that’s pretty idealistic, huh? Imagine that, an eagle that can fly…
