Welcome back to business, US Government! I am very relieved to see the government back in action, and without the Democrats giving anything up. It has been very obvious that as long as the GOP House kept getting things from their antics, they were going to continue driving us to the edge of demolition - that has to stop. Granted - by "stop" I mean, put off until winter or spring. But - the fact that the Democrats did not bend is a cause for optimism. Having found the limits of what they can get by extortion, maybe they will try politics...
Anyway - that's that. Right now? a random selection of musical tunes for your contemplation:
1. Motorhead - Fast and Loose
2. Hoodoo Gurus - Bittersweet
3. Built to Spill - Conventional Wisdom
4. Johnny Cash - Wreck of the old 97
5. Tom Verlaine - Balcony
6. U2 - Bad
7. Boredoms - House of Sun
8. King Crimson - The Power to Believe II
9. Saint Etienne - Like a Motorway
10. Ray Charles - Drown in My Own Tears
Video: I have had the misfortune recently to get Air Supply stuck in my head... this is terrible, and enough to make one consider reprisals against our antipodean friends; this, I hope, can counter such horrors - this is a song that would make a very welcome ear worm...
And Ray Charles of course.
