Day 170: The Establishment’s blues, Rodriguez
Yes we seem to be living in a time when most establishments are having problems. This song kind of captures the feeling of emotional overload one feels when reading a modern newspaper. The temptation is always to take Sixto’s advice in the final line of this song: “frankly I couldn’t care less”.
