“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”

Cannibal Corpse and Crystal Method were the other two in my memory and they were in a club

Saw them with Moon in 1976 (?). They were as loud as advertised

Two years running, our rookie class is DA BOMB!
I hope someone posts the lyrics so I can read them. I do NOT want to have to listen to a song. Sorry Tay, nothing personal
