I am a small black spot of free thought in a white mass of rolled dough.
That is how I feel.
The conservative power in the south is overwhelming.
Our Oldies radio sings songs of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who.
But they only tap their feet and think about the past.
Free speech is only for our government textbooks.
Free speech roams over the top of the south’s 50-foot blanket of gray conservatism.
Folks from time to time poke their heads above the gray just to see how smoothly
the gray blanket limits our view of our clear skies.
I could assume that Ray Bradbury ‘s  “Fahrenheight 451”
is on the “do not read” list in our public schools.
