As far as I'm concerned, "Dinosaur" was better than "Jurassic Park"...particularly in terms of acting and plausible storyline. Jurassic Park had some of the worst acting ever seen in the history of motion pictures, although not quite as bad as Godzilla '98 or Independence Day, arguably. Dinosaur was excellent.

Puff the Magic Dragon is NOT about pot, but about coming of age, as Spaw indicated.

Mr. Tambourine Man is NOT about a drug dealer, but about freedom of the human spirit.

Rainy Day Women is NOT about drugs either, but about society in a more generalized sense, as to the trips people tend to lay on each other, the rat race, etc.

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds is NOT about LSD, but was inspired by a picture a little girl drew.

and...

Leonard Skynrd songs are not about intelligent perception or anything like that. :-)

Gospel Picker - right on! There are homeless dying on the streets of Toronto too. What does North American society have to be self-righteous about when they can't even show mercy upon their own lost and forsaken?
