Great stuff.

"Diamonds & Rust" is a song written and performed by Joan Baez. It was written in November 1974 and released in 1975.

In the song, Baez recounts an out-of-the-blue phone call from an old lover, which sends her a decade back in time, to a "crummy" hotel in Greenwich Village; she recalls giving him a pair of cuff-links, and summarizes that memories bring "diamonds and rust." Baez has stated that the lyrics refer to her relationship with Bob Dylan.

Truly classic.

Sometimes those late night calls weren't such a great idea, other times, really swell.

I read a very interesting theory about the "Wild West" of the 1870s, 1880s. The author theorized that the majority of lawlessness was the result of PTSD riddled Civil War vets. It makes sense to me.

Thanks - I'd never heard, or thought, that possibility.

Something to ponder, for sure.

Because 90% of the time, the caller is falling down drunk when he makes the call.
