Jackson Browne: "Lives In The Balance"

In a way it describes the "edgy" feeling a lot of Americans have today about "the men who fan the flames".


Though the words are as relevant now as they were thirty years ago, I always think of this episode of Miami Vice and G. Gordon Liddy's appearance in this episode.



H/T to Scott in Lakeshore!

  7. Oh BTW Irish,
    In that trailer...That scene of the DC-3 taking off... with the traditional one landing gear lagging....that is none other than N26MA at the time owned by Ben Conatser of Perris Valley Paracenter in CA. Don't know who flew it (Maybe Skip Evans??) but it was painted up in a horrible "Camo" Krylon paint job for the show!! After a while Skip Evans bought the plane from Ben, had some DZ locals strip "ALL" the paint off it and shined it up like you wouldn't believe!!! The side was so shinny you could use it for a mirror to shave in!! Skip still has it!!! He has a "SAG Card" so you will see it in Movies!!
    'Wish I had a nickle for all the dives I have made out of that plane.......I could buy enough whiskey to get at least you and I a really good Buzz if not "More So!!!"
    Got DC-3.....OUTLAW!!!!!,
