The Captain’s Journal would like to welcome all of our new Pakistani readers, from (according to Google Analytics) cities such as Faisalabad, Lahore, Ralwapindi, Islamabad, Karachi, and even Peshawar and Quetta. We are truly glad to have you visiting, even if we don’t see eye to eye on the solution to the problems of FATA and NWFP, al Qaeda, Mullah Omar, and Baitullah Mehsud and the evil empire of the Tehrik-i-Taliban.
Since we are crossing cultural barriers, it might be nice to introduce something of American culture – while also wisely combining it with the Friday night music feature we provide to unwind a bit from the week. Or perhaps you are associated with the Tehrik-i-Taliban, in which case you shouldn’t listen to this music lest your brethren cut off your ears and punish you with lashes (we’ve noted how you have burned CDs and threatened store owners). In either case, you’ve been warned.
One nursery rhyme little children learn is Mary Had a Little Lamb. It’s a curious assortment of words and ideas about a little lamb following children to school and making their day rather enjoyable. Or … we can let Stevie Ray Vaughan tell us the story himself.
