Stephanie says she wants to sing
Stephanie Winter, whom I interviewed in this week's City Pages, performs with her band Stephanie Says, with openers the Owls and the Carpetbaggers, Saturday at the Kitty Cat Klub in Minneapolis. Wish I were here this weekend...
Happy and complicated MLK Day
PEACE AND POWER
DO YOU REMEMBER THAT SHINING HOUR, WHEN MALCOLM AND MARTIN MET WE CALLED IT PEACE AND POWER. PEACE IN THE DICTIONARY IS DEFINED AS CALM, REPOSE, FREEDOM FROM WAR, QUIETNESS OF MIND. THAT MY FRIEND IN THE 1960S WAS SO HARD TO FIND. THE KIND OF PEACE I'M TALKING ABOUT COMES FROM KNOWING WHAT LIES AHEAD. JUST SIT BACK AND RELAX AND REMEMBER SOME OF THE THINGS MARTIN SAID. BOTH SPOKE PROPHETICALLY, AND WERE MEN OF VISION, AND THEIR SPIRITS WILL ALWAYS LIVE. HOWEVER, PEACE AND POWER WERE NOT THEIRS TO GIVE. YOU SEE, PEACE COMES TO THOSE WHO SEEK IT. POWER COMES TO THOSE WHO TAKE IT. EITHER WAY YOU JUST CAN'T FAKE IT. -- KING SAUD, 1990
