If we don't speak up now, raising our voices in dissent, then when will we? An argument could be made that the powers-that-be are striving to stifle the means by which those voices may be heard. 
Now is the time to speak in favor of Net Neutrality
Now is the time to note that we will never be able to return to this moment in history.
Now is the time to insist the our leaders put nation ahead of party, the intent of our so-called "founding fathers" above self-interest.
Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of their country.

For the era of album-oriented music (rock, jazz, etc.), understanding the history of a musical artist or group happened at a track-by-track level. Back then we bought albums rather than songs, and the way those tracks were laid out on either vinyl or plastic was part of the artistry.

Exactly 30 years ago tonight (from the time of this posting) I was the victim of an armed robbery, staring down the barrel of a gun.
