Music for a Sunday: Gil Scott-Heron, RIP

This great underrated gem comes courtesy of a man who left us far too soon, this past Friday, aged 62. We need him more than ever, especially when stories like this terrible one about Bradley Manning come out. It’s not enough to not send mentally fragile people to war; we shouldn’t be sending anyone, as it makes even healthy people crazy and sick.

Sleep well, Brother Gil. Gonna do my damnedest to keep your message going, keep people awake and working for peace and justice.
