Toronto Day

Today is said to be the day Toronto was founded, and is the day, they say, of what will be the largest concert in the history of Canada….

The Rolling Stones at
Downsview Park, Toronto.
 

Comparisons to Woodstock have been made, with attendance expected to be about half a million strong.  Thoughts of Woodstock reminded me of Joni Mitchell, and so I sought Joni’s advice for an alternative to the spirit of this event, recalling her words

Oh honey you turn me on
I’m a radio
I’m a country station
I’m a little bit corny
………………………………
I’m a broadcasting tower
Waving for you
And I’m sending you out
This signal here
I hope you can pick it up
Loud and clear

A search for the promised
country station yielded….

The redneck alternative….

TWANG ‘EM!

Today’s culture wars quote:

“God help me, I do love it so.”
