Midnight Run (2.0)

Greetings and high flying salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, humid, hallowed, haunting island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you on this Thursday morning here in lovely Bass River, ‘ding, ding, ding, ding!’, lo, The Nineteenth Day of August, 2021, another day in paradise, yes?, what with CNN ‘politics’, recent front page headline, “…what changes the unvaccinated minds?, FEAR!”, yes, I think we can all agree that Armageddon is right in front of our collective EYES, if you happen to be a seer…

In the fine film, circa 1988, “Midnight Run”, starring Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin, there was an interesting exchange between the bounty hunter and one Alonzo Mosely, of the FBI (played by Yaphet Kotto), and it went something like this…

Alonzo:  “Let me tell you something a$$hole, I’ve been working on this Jimmy Serrano thing for six years, Mardukas (The Duke), is my shot, I’m not going to bring him to Federal Court, and I don’t want any third-rate rent-a-thug W.H.O. can’t cut it as a cop in Chicago bringing him to L.A. on some bullshit local charge…. Do I make myself understood?”

Jack Walsh (Robert DeNiro):

“Can I ask you something?  These sunglasses, they’re really nice, are they government issue or do you guys go to the same store to get them?”

“What makes a man think he can forget about what used to be?

Be happy with the way life is…?

Not to think about what once was his.

Whiskey drunk and under the gun…

Midnight Run.

I’m taking me a Midnight Run.

I’m making another one.

A thousand miles or more I’ll drive, to where I lived when I thought I was alive….

They’ll never know I was around, just my shadow on the ground.

I turn East to face the sun, after making me a Midnight Run.

I tell you all ’cause you need to know, they don’t call me to go.

I hear voices coming ‘cross the miles, I got no choice but to be gone awhile…

I say get in you, better lock and load, don’t let the wind block your road…

I’ll be gone, but when it’s done, I’m all alone on a Midnight Run.

I’m taking me a Midnight Run, I’m making another one.

A Thousand Miles or MORE I’ll drive.

To where I lived when I thought I was alive.”

Have a great day!
