Thankfully, The Moonpie Chronicles has given us an outlet for serious topics and rants.

Each year, Willie has a "picnic' on the fourth of July on his ranch in Texas.
David Allan Coe and other invited guests sing and party for several days each July.
Leon and many other guests are invited to Willies party to play and have a grand time at the annual event. In the 70's, the Watermelon Mountain Jug Band was invited to attend and wrote a song about the experience.
"Hey, hey Willie
we're glad we came along
gettin' high on them Texas skies
gettin' high on them Texas songs
soon we will be leavin' and we'll all say good-bye
to Willie Nelsons picnic on the 4th of July"
If it's the LAST thing we do, Rick and I will be at Willies picnic some year before we take up the rocking chair.
Happy Birthday America.
