For A Dancer - Jackson Browne

starts about 4:20

Keep a fire burning in your eye
Pay attention to the open sky
You never know what will be coming down

I don't remember losing track of you
You were always dancing in and out of view
I must've always thought you'd be around
Always keeping things real by playing the clown
Now you're nowhere to be found

I don't know what happens when people die
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
It's like a song playing right in my ear
That I can't sing
I can't help listening

I can't help feeling stupid standing 'round
Crying as they ease you down
'Cause I know that you'd rather we were dancing
Dancing our sorrow away
(Right on dancing)
No matter what fate chooses to play
(There's nothing you can do about it anyway)

Just do the steps that you've been shown
By everyone you've ever known
Until the dance becomes your very own
No matter how close to yours another's steps have grown
In the end there is one dance you'll do alone

Keep a fire for the human race
And let your prayers go drifting into space
You never know what will be coming down

Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily, it could all disappear
Along with whatever meaning you might have found
Don't let the uncertainty turn you around
(The world keeps turning around and around)
Go on and make a joyful sound

Into a dancer you have grown
From a seed somebody else has thrown
Go on ahead and throw some seeds of your own
And somewhere between the time you arrive and the time you go
May lie a reason you were alive but you'll never know

from the article

"According to the new poll of 800 primary voters from Tyson's firm, Tel Opinion Research, Biden leads Sanders by more than 2-to-1: 39 percent to 16 percent. Everyone else is in the low single digits."

from elsewhere

"Sen. Bernie Sanders got some bad news in the most recent 2020 polling, and it spells trouble for him in an important primary state.

A new Monmouth University poll out of New Hampshire shows former Vice President Joe Biden in first place with a double-digit lead over Sanders -- 36% to 18%.

Sanders has seen a sharp decline in major polls over the past month, and a recent Morning Consult poll showed Biden with a 21 point lead over the Vermont senator."



Also.... speaking of mostly old white-haired guys who still have IT:

Crosby Stills and Nash - Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - Live 2012

mostly just Stills on an acoustic guitar... and that harmony live.

"What was once pure "genius", has now become "maestro", without par. Those who are not musicians, will not understand how incredibly difficult it is to play, and sing, this live. If not, just sit back and enjoy. The musicians among us, will just gaze on in stunned awe."

So... how is this happening, you ask?


"How Joe Biden is eating into Bernie Sanders' coalition

But something else is at play: Biden does well among whites without a college degree who, as a group, backed Sanders in 2016. This could help Biden given that other Democrats haven't been able to break through among white Democrats without a college degree in the primary.

Whites without a college degree still make up a substantial portion of the Democratic Party. Despite much noise about how whites with a degree are the future for Democrats, each group is about 30% of the party. Nonwhites, both with and without college degrees, are about 40% in total.

To win in the primary, a candidate likely has to do well with at least two of these groups. So far, Biden's the only one to be doing that; he consistently has the support of African-Americans."
