Righteousness Someday Prevail

Tuesday marks the late great Bob Marley's birthday; he would have been (only) 73, a mournful reminder of just how young he was when he died - 36 - and just how long he's been gone. A ghetto-dweller born wailing, with a savvy, wary view of "politricks" and "the shitstem," what sweet solace he might have tendered - "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery/ None but ourselves can free our minds" - in these dark days.  Still, his music and legacy live on. If you haven't, see the great documentary about him, and "Come we go chant down Babylon one more time."
