One of the people who helped us get this whole thing started -- John Lennon of the Beatles (who donated the song "Nowhere Man" to our First Vibration album) -- probably made a case for the power of truth about as well as it can be made. He wrote:

 

I'm sick and tired of hearing things
from uptight, shortsighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

I've had enough of reading things
by neurotic, psychotic pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of Tricky Dicky
is gonna Mother Hubbard soft-soap me
with just a pocketful of soap
Money for dope
Money for rope.

I'm sick to death of seeing things
from tight-lipped, condescending, mama's little chauvinists
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

I've had enough of watching scenes
of schizophrenic, egocentric, paranoid prima donas
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth.

--John Lennon


We liked the song -- and the message it conveys -- so much that we turned it into a poster that we've got hanging up in our front offices. Check it out some time, if you're ever in Tempe. Heck, check it out now (just click the "Let's see!" button, below), if you've got the Acrobat plug-in...
