Meet Me In The Bottom

No, it's not a Republican campaign slogan! Howlin' Wolf was born with the God-given ability to make make every syllable he sang sound like sex. He didn't shy away from this awesome gift, either, augmenting it with a bullish and commanding physicality. Don't miss the videos below and especially don't miss the reprise...

Exchange with a 17-year old girl at my gym:

"Is that a Deadhead t-shirt?"

"Why, yes, it is."

"That's cool. My uncle used to follow them around."

Yeah, kids are funny...

"A dining experience as impeccable as the food": Not for nothing, but Premium T. and I were married here last December...

Headline of the week: Britney won't play killer lesbian stripper. A relief in so many ways...

Compassionate Conservative Dept.: Bush  Tours America To Survey Damage Caused By His Disastrous Presidency. Featuring a report from Kansas, "one of the fifty states in the direct path of his presidency"...

"The Eddie Haskell of politics": Amy Silverman of the Phoenix  New Times writes about her long history of covering John McCain, including his slimy bushwhacking of newly appointed Arizona governor Rose Mofford, the back story to the exposure of Cindy McCain embezzling from a family charity to support her prescription drug addiction, and McCain's falling out with Barry Goldwater. Lengthy, but don't miss it...

Those Canadians are a very dangerous people: "When we buy foreign oil, we enrich some of our worst enemies." --John McCain, June 25, 2008. The United States imports more oil from Canada than any other nation, followed by Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Venezuela, and Nigeria...

Recently, my daughter and I were in the car and were trying to find some mutually acceptable music.

Finally, I saw that I had a Led Zeppelin CD in the console and told my daughter, "Oh, wait, you'll love this."

She listened for a few minutes, then pronounced it "boring" and "old lady music."

Zeppelin? Old lady? WTF???

Yeah, kids are REAL cute..
