    I had forgot that he founded EFF, just one more reason to love the guy. Hope he sticks around for many more years to come.

    "Quick beats of an icy heart,
    Catch colt draws a coffin cart."

    One of my favorite Dead lyrics, right up there with Hunter.

    I completely agree.

    I'm sure you've read it...but if by chance you haven't, here's JPB's wonderful 1990 essay on the writing of that song

    EDIT: I just took 10 minutes and read this essay for the umpteenth time......and yet still, these words seem as fresh & well-crafted as the first time I read them. JPB, for the win.

    That's a very cool article. I had heard parts of that story before, but not the whole thing.
