The largest organism on earth is apparently some mushroom system ensconced somewhere in Oregon—several miles wide. Problem is, it tries to kill everything in its path in a mindless striving for ultimate dominance. So I’m sticking with the small-fry whales and trees, to summon a metaphor for Black Uhuru and Dub Lounge International, one internationally known, the other a local act, but both committed (through the admittedly far-from-ideal doctrines of Rastafarianism) to love, peace, joy, enjoyment, and togetherness—all vibes decidedly out of style in present-second America. So put on your bark, your flippers, rise up, and abandon the creeping mushroom!
