Westerville is NOT Nirvana

Not Nirvana as in not paradise.

I guess Nirvana is a state not a place. Nirvana is happiness, peace, lots of great things. It's a Budhist concept. It's way over my head.

Nirvana was also the name of a rock group. Grunge rock

The Nirvana song from the early 90's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" went through my brain at church in Westerville Ohio Sunday morning.  Some of the lyrics to the song are:

"Load up on guns
Bring your friends
Its fun to lose
And to pretend
Shes overboard
Myself assured
I know I know
A dirty word"

I'm too old to have songs like that running through my brain. The song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is from the early 90's.   In the early 90's I was already waaaaaay too old for personal teen angst but the song is caught in my brain never the less.

A friend who is a parishioner of a Westerville church that was the alledged target of a "Columbine style attack" according to articlees in the Columbus Dispatch blurted out something about the boy's parents not being responsible parents when we first talked about it last Wednesday night when I read about "the plot" online and sought the Columbus Dispatch for more information. Two unidentified local restaurants were also alleged targets.

Westerville is not Nirvana is an entry on my other blog, Columbus Best Blog about the local story of troubled teens in that Central Ohio community.  I want to believe the plot that was "uncovered" was just a plea for attention and not something that they could or would implement. Two other local teens who read about 'the plot' on brought it to the attention of local authorities.

The Westerville boys would have been born around the time the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was recorded by Nirvana. Here (link broken)  is a YouTube Video of "Smells Like Teen Spirit.' It's hard to hear the lyrics. It's a song about teenage rebellion and anarchy, the A in a circle means Anarchy.  To me Westerville is more soccer league and cheerleader, less anarchy.
