Another Mayday? Ai A Day!


“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”

—Albert Einstein (1879-1955), who formulated the theory of relativity.


“Mayday”—an international radio telephone signal for help that is used by ships and aircraft in distress—is short for the French phrase “venez m’aider” (come help me).

American singer, songwriter, Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner Bob Dylan was born May 24,1941. Still performs at 82. Below is a parody of his beautiful song titled Forever Young.

May You Only Slowly Grow Senescent

(Parody of the Bob Dylan song Forever Young)


May your brain stay bright and your head stay clear

May kind loving thoughts for others predominate

May both your eyes avoid shedding a single tear

May your ears enjoy both minor key and dominant

May you continue to learn when and how not to fight

And argue less and less with all those that you love

As you sing and dance throughout eternal night

Stand up for your beliefs when push comes to shove

May you keep your heart wide open to all the poor

Immigrants whether their entry is legal or not

Stay away from lying politicos and followers for sure

Stay away from entangling arguments when they get hot.

May the rest of your life be peaceful and pleasant.

May you only very slowly grow to be senescent.
