RIP Paul Kantner

Many of my contemporaries noticed the obituary of one of the Jefferson Airplane founders, Paul Kantner, a few weeks ago.

I love the Airplane's music. (Memories of the founding moments of the Evil Sun!) But what I was especially interested to learn was that Kantner wrote "Wooden Ships," together with David Crosby.

Here's a reflection on "Wooden Ships" I wrote about a year ago: What Would It Take for Friendship to Trump War? ("Say, can I have some of those purple berries . . .?")
