FreeThinker Posted July 15, 2012 Report Share Posted July 15, 2012 At one of the greatest musical moments in the last half-century, Bruce Springsteen was performing in Hyde Park in London with Paul McCartney. In the middle of Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney playing "Twist and Shout"... let me repeat this just for emphasis in case you don't understand... In the middle of Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney playing "Twist and Shout"... the Westminster City Council turned off the sound because they were violating curfew. Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney, playing Twist and Shout, were silenced for breaking curfew. I can't wrap my mind around this. Am I hallucinating? Did this REALLY happen? Am I crazy for thinking this is absolutely the dumbest thing a city council has ever done? The English language doesn't have a word to describe the depth of stupidity... I am, since we're talking about the English, gobsmacked. I am flabbergasted. I am... I don't know. I suppose I'll have to "Keep Calm and Carry-on." But, I can imagine some council members who may not be around after the next round of Council Elections! http://www.cnn.com/2....html?hpt=hp_t2 Quote Link to comment
