Back when I was in the army, I could have gone "hard-core" and been a gung-ho soldier. Thankfully a friend of mine had introduced me to Arlo Guthrie in high school. I spent a lot of time listening to Arlo's music, which I contend saved me from a life of soldiering. I considered Arlo my personal saviour.
When I was in college, I went to a party at a local hotel. It was in the middle of winter, and a massive storm was coming in, so I left early. Just my luck, about an hour after I left, Arlo's tour bus stopped there to escape the storm. Arlo made an appearance at the party I was told the next day. Damn. That's my "Arlo story".
Arlo is a famous folk singer. You would expect that he would tend towards the democrats and liberals. Well, surprisingly today we got the great news that Arlo has endorsed Ron Paul! Once again, Arlo brings joy to my life.
