Buddy Holly, science and meaning

Art is not about playing to what is popular.

It’s about being true and having a voice.

That’s what resonates.

And is remembered.

Science and art have a lot in common, especially the fact that what stands out as truly great was probably poo-pooed at the time.

The micro-managers who control science funding and corporate science have the imagination of a foot stool.

“There’s a focus group

That can prove

This is nothing but cold calculation.”

Tragically Hip

Buddy was born 80-years-ago, today in Texas.
