My music playlist for today (September 13, 2012 edition)

I wrote earlier today about the “Coexist” bumper stickers and the meaning behind them, along with the trouble the world has witnessed the past few days alone with anti-American views coming from some in the Muslim world and the demonization some Christians heap upon Muslims.

As I was writing that, I thought of who I could feature for a classic rock playlist.  One name came to me, a name of a musician whose music I’ve loved for decades, dating back to the early 1970s.

His birth name is Steven Demetre Georgiou.  His stage name was Cat Stevens.  His Muslim name is Yusuf Islam.

He’s just one of those musicians who’s written or sung about a silly thing known as peace, which goes hand-in-hand with one word …

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
