And now, a prophetic word from Simon and Garfunkel

Hat tip, Bridgett, who embedded Simon and Garfunkel’s recording of Silent Night on her blog earlier this week. Looking back at her twelve-year-old self, she comments,

Didn’t know who Lenny Bruce was, didn’t know much about Martin Luther King, Jr, either. But I understood the juxtaposition of a news report filled with bad news up against that perfect little Christmas carol.

I can’t embed the recording on WordPress.com — one of the drawbacks of the site is, it is very restrictive about what you can embed. But I have embedded it on Emerging From Babel, with relevant commentary.
