no woman no cry

You might enjoy watching the most bizarre musical performance I've seen recently. The song, released in 1974 by Bob Marley and the Wailers, addresses a poor woman growing up in the Jamaican slums, promising that things will be “alright” and asking her not to cry.

This version is Bahraini - not Saudi - nevertheless it's a country whose policies regarding women is very similar to other Gulf monarchies, ie, women there can vote and run for public office but very few have been allowed to exercise those rights.

What a world, eh? You have to laugh.

Then there's this one:


  1. Funniest, saddest damn thing I've seen in a bit. the video i mean.
    i always liked that second watercolor, it's my youngest daughter to a 't'....the one who's now on the fbi, nsa and cia watchlist i'm sure.
    glad to see you post.

    1. You're right about the video, Mike. I could hardly believe it.

      I'm sure you're proud of your daughter's efforts and accomplishments. That's quite a list.
