I took a picture of an old Chrysler, and didn’t see the reflection of the flags until I got home. This is similar to the one owned by Harry Truman, who would drive with his wife Bess to NYC, to visit their daughter. He drove it himself, with no Secret Service detail.
This reminded me of the 1975 song by Robert Lamm of the band “Chicago,” who was not a fan of Richard Nixon –
America needs you Harry Truman ~ Harry could you please come home
Things are looking bad ~ I know you would be mad ~
To see what kind of men ~ Prevail upon the land you love ~
America’s wondering, how we got here ~ Harry all we get is lies~
We’re gettin’ safer cars ~ Rocket ships to Mars ~
From men who’d sell us out~ To get themselves a piece of power ~
We’d love to hear you speak your mind ~ In plain and simple ways ~
Call a spade a spade~ Like you did back in the day ~
You would play piano ~ Each morning walk a mile ~
Speak of what was going down ~ With honesty and style ~
~ America’s calling Harry Truman ~ Harry you know what to do ~
The world is turnin’ round ~ and losin’ lots of ground
Oh Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love ~~~~~ by Robert Lamm
