brave or free?
nancy and I were in Nevada City, and we saw a guy wearing a "Home of the Brave" Tshirt. Nan thought it was a "Home of the Free" tshirt. Ah the same thing we chortled. But we then thought is it? Actually, not really - they seem to be at odds. Would you rather be free or brave? Given the current cloudy nature of freedom, it's a hard choice, but let's go with the commonly accepted idea of the groovy version of freedom. In that case I think I'd rather be free, cuz if you have to be brave, then there's some fucked up adversity in your way, which is entirely unfree-feeling. Facing adversity may be good for character-building, but it's a total drag, and I think I'd rather be free.
