Re: Sinclairs at war (great subject title!) should be a new section of the website...
Rob, once again you have me standing up shouting approval for your fine
thoughts on culture, heritage and even Oak Island which brings a sence of
real anger when I think of the rusting artifacts, lack of science and wonder
within the island. But most importantly you have echoed culture and values
together as inseperable in a fashion that only a poet and musician can. Hats
off to you.
