It's Letters Like These....
... that keep Thrasher's Wheat going. Or, I was down on a frown when a messenger brought me a letter.
I just want to tell you that your website is great and I have been reading it ever since getting my first computer in 1997. I am a huge fan of Neil Young and I eagerly await my "Living With War" CD from Amazon this week.
Now I'll get to the jest of my letter to you. I can't believe you're getting so much hate mail because of "Living With War". This is a free country and there is something called feedom of speech. I have always been conservative and a Neil Young fan and there is room for both. Neil Young has always spoken to me in an apolitical way even when he sings political songs (ie Southern Man - I'm from Louisiana). At this point in time I'm very proud to be a Neil Young fan. Even though I voted for Bush not once but twice, my wife, son and I are disgusted with our President. His wrong decisions on many topics such as in education (I'm a
teacher), war in Iraq , and the ship port incident are making us feel like we made a terrible decision in voting for Bush.
I'll say it again, I'm proud to be a Neil Young fan and an American with many freedoms. Because Neil Young, Thrashers Wheat and my family think that our President is doing something terribly wrong does not make us Un-American. In fact, we're very much American.
Thanks again for all the hard work and don't get discouraged.
Tim in Louisiana
Thanks Tim! And thanks to everyone else who has written letters of support. These are most precious and appreciated. Without the stunning and overwhelming reader support, this site would have folded over these past few weeks. Thank you, my friends.
