The Sound of Treachery

Fifty years ago

on January 22nd 1966

the top song
on the Billboard charts

was "The Sound of Silence"
by Simon and Garfunkel

and Bernie Sanders
for his latest television ad

has chosen
the duo's song "America".

He must be communicating
some really subversive message

like "Americans should not be silent."
