There’s a red under my bed…
Ken Kellar

…and there's a little yellow man in my head.

 

The above lines are lyrics from the Kinks song Destroyer circa 1981.

 

Here are a couple more lines:

 

Paranoia, the destroyer.

 

Silly boy you got so much to live for

So much to aim for, so much to try for

You blowing it all with paranoia

You're so insecure you self-destroyer

Merge the City and County?
Harry M. Covert

Have you heard the good news? I mean the news on the local level where many old names and a slew of new ones are movin' and groovin' to see if they can honestly make any differences in governance.
