    Everyone in Canada is listening to a lot of The Tragically Hip these past couple of days since Gord Downie passed away. Losing Gord is hard to understand for those outside Canada, but one guy put it well: "Imagine if you were Irish and Bono passed, if Bono wasn't so insufferable." When Gord found out he had terminal brain cancer, the Hip embarked on one last tour and poured their guts out in every show, culminating in a final show in their hometown of Kingston that was broadcast live by the CBC. 11 million watched, that's a third of the country. This clip is from their final show in Toronto.

          '�I am no advocate of passivity,� Coffin Mott said in an 1860 speech. �Quakerism, as I understand it, does not mean quietism. The early Friends were agitators; disturbers of the peace; and were more obnoxious in their day to charges, which are now so freely made, than we are.�'

                              Rejoice, Columbia's sons, rejoice!
                              To tyrants never bend your knee,
                              But join with heart, and soul, and voice,
                              For Jefferson and Liberty!

                              No lordling here, with gorging jaws
                              Shall wring from industry the food;
                              Nor fiery bigot's holy laws
                              Lay waste our fields and streets in blood!

                              Here strangers from a thousand shores
                              Compelled by tyranny to roam,
                              Shall find amidst abundant stores,
                              A nobler and happier home.

                              Here Art shall lift her laurelled head,
                              Wealth, Industry, and Peace, divine;
                              And where dark, pathless forests spread,
                              Rich fields and lofty cities shine.

                              From Europe's wants and woes remote,
                              A friendly waste of waves between,
                              Here plenty cheers the humblest cot,
                              And smiles on every village green.

                              Here free as air, expanded space,
                              To every soul and sect shall be --
                              That sacred privilege of our race --
                              The worship of the Deity.

                              Let foes to freedom dread the name;
                              But should they touch the sacred tree,
                              Twice fifty thousands swords would flame
                              For Jefferson and liberty.

                              From Georgia to Lake Champlain,
                              From seas to Mississippi's shore,
                              Ye sons of freedom loud proclaim --
                              "The reign of terror is no more."

                              These gifts, great Liberty, are thine,
                              Then thousand more we owe to thee,
                              Immortal may their mem'ries shine,
                              Who fought and died for Liberty.

                                With DP in my ear, there's nothing I can't accomplish.
                                Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.
