The Times They Are A Changin’?

D20 9118 The Times They Are A Changin?

“THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT TRY MEN’S SOULS:”

When Justice is over-ruled by Law
When Peace is attainable only by War
When Freedom is sabotaged by Organization
When God is only a device for Immortality
When Progress is stifled by Traditional Ignorance

And Baby, these are any old time

–Mason Williams, 1964

Bob Dylan told us “The Times They Are A Changin'” but it seems he may have been wrong.

I took this photo in Columbia, South Carolina in 1971. I was in the Army stationed at Ft. Jackson. We would walk from the base into town through this very depressed neighborhood. When I saw that billboard in that environment I almost couldn’t believe my eyes. How would you have felt if you lived in one of those shacks and looked out your window to see that sign?

Well, maybe some things have changed, but how much has really changed under the surface?

I leave in the morning for a trip out west. It should be a great time in some of the most beautiful places in the U.S. with some of the most beautiful women in the U.S. modeling for me. I guess I shouldn’t complain.
