    Zappa was not only an amazing musician, he was incredibly intelligent. I guess Carlton is referring to the Boston Bomber cover on the Rolling Stone magazine. Reminds me of the current mainstream media as well as their audience who cannot think for themselves.

    That's right Archer...according to the rock magazine, we all need to know the real Boston Bomber and how we all failed him....what absolute BULL!

    At the Boston bombing, what of the special forces and others participating in the government drill - all sporting the same back packs and, in the vicinity of Rolling Stone's rock star. Isn't the media great, in a highly publicized shooting of a hooded individual, only darling pictures of a younger youth were shown with no one getting excited.
