What have I heard about the blues? Things like this:
Blues is real
Blues is life
Blues is real life
Blues is the story of life
Blues tells the story of our lives
Blues reflects our times
Blues tells the truth
The blues chases away the blues
The blues is a woman
And when it comes to lovin’, cheatin’, hurtin’ and schemin’, the blues has that covered too.
In the past few days I’ve come to realize that blues is intrinsic to, and helps tell the story of, THE BIG DEAL at the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA is in the center of all news right now (Monday, November 12, 2012). General David Petraeus, the Director of the CIA, resigned last week because of an affair. We are now finding out more.
