[imagine an intense live shot]


One of the Just Men came to Sodom, determined to save its inhabitants from sin and punishment. Night and day he walked the streets and markets protesting against greed and theft, falsehood and indifference. In the beginning, people listened and smiled ironically. Then they stopped listening; he no longer even amused them. The killers went on killing, the wise kept silent, as if there were no Just Man in their midst.
One day a child, moved by compassion for the unfortunate teacher, approached him with these words:
"Poor stranger, you shout, you scream, don't you see that it is hopeless?"
"Yes, I see," answered the Just Man.
"Then why do you go on?"
"I'll tell you why. In the beginning, I thought I could change man. Today, I know I can not. If I still shout today, if I still scream, it is to prevent man from ultimately changing me."

-- Elie Wiesel

CRASHDOG was a punk band made up of the following guys

Andrew Mandell -- voice
Greg Jacques -- drums
brian grover -- bass
Jason Burt -- guitar
Mike Perlmutter --guitar

Spike used to sing in the band when Andrew played guitar, but now he's doing other things in the community. We're still all good friends, though we really miss his mechanic skills when we're on the road.

The wicked curve in upon themselves.
They gather and hoard. They acquire treasure,
but it turns out to be moldy stuff, and in the long run,
The righteous expand outward.
They don't grasp things, but hand them around,
lightly touching them with appreciation
and passing them on.

-- Eugene Peterson (on Psalm 37:21)
