The song “Ohio” was an anthem to a generation in the 1970’s. Here’s how Neil remembers the song from liner notes of the Decade album:
“It’s still hard to believe I had to write this song. It’s ironic that I capitalized on the death of these American students. Probably the most important lesson ever learned at an American place of learning. David Crosby cried after this take.

Something more on the serious side.
Well, by now you might’ve figured I’m a medical student. It’s no news that “Strange” cases would excite me.
This one definitely did.
Ever heard of two-faced people?
This one case is. Well, literally!
Saw this one picture trending on social networking sites.
Did a couple of hours worth research on it.
Deemed it may be possible.

Please stay with me as I unravel this mystery.
He’s Edward Mordrake.
Now, I have no clue as to the date of this picture.
My take on it is, it would be around late 19th century.
-According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_camera), the first commercial camera began sales at the consumer level at around 1885, and I don’t see any reason why a picture may be clicked using any other camera.

“One night when I was maybe 10 – 12 I had trouble falling asleep. My bedroom was the entire top floor of our house with my bed and such being on the left side and storage closets and a play area being on the right.
I was lying in bed when I heard a noise from the other side of the room and saw a rocking horse begin to rock. It was sitting just outside one of the storage closet doors. It proceeded to rock its…

This is perfect. My thoughts exactly!
Yesterday my wife took the twins to the doctor for a checkup. They wanted to start our babies on their “vaccination schedule,” but, oddly, our schedule differs slightly from the one predetermined by the medical establishment. I’m not against all vaccines, but I am strongly opposed to the idea of blindly handing our babies over to the nurse and saying, “Here! Pump whatever chemicals you want into them. I’ll be in the lobby reading a Highlights magazine, give me a holler when it’s over.” In other words, vaccinating is a conscious decision that my wife and I wish to make, not one with which we will passively cooperate.
