I've been watching on tv, some of those students (and I use the term loosely), who can't cope with the outcome of the election, so much so, that they are having their college exams postponed. What kind of weak kneed, paintie-wasted wimps have we been raising in this nation? I am appalled. They don't know what REAL pressure is. They have no concept of what life is really all about. I guess they have been so pampered all their life, that they would curl up in a corner and boo-hoo if a drill seargent like I had in basic, were to get on their case, let alone, how they would cower if they were to come under enemy fire from bullets and mortars like I went through when I was 19 years old. Oh poor little things---someone please, give them a crying towel. I have no sympathy for them. If some find this offensive, so be it, maybe you need a crying towel too.8 comments

born in Texas--grew up in Florida--Served in Vietnam as a Dust-off pilot. I grew up around music. My dad, Willie Bynum played,had 3 sisters that payed as did their mother. Dad started me on a mandolin when I was about 6. I messed with a banjo he had a little when I was in H/S, but got sidetracked a little with rock and roll in the mid 60s. Started plaing the banjo in 1968 while in the army(just learning). Played with Dad and his sister and others in Florida after I got out of the army. Played 17 years with Chambers Creek from Maypearl, Tx, then 2 1/2 years with Country Friends from Italy, Texas. Now just pic and jam for fun when I'm not flying.
