This supreme court, at least the current majority of five of them, is a ghastly, anti-human collection of trolls. Conservatives, so-called, who believe no intrusion by government or law enforcement is bad unless it helps average citizens. Conservatives, so-called, who think that power is always right. They should be ashamed of themselves, but of course they’re not.

Song with best lyrics ever, please. I trust my vote for “The Piña Colada Song” is a given.

Every time I consider giving up on the human race, I go out into the world and meet a bunch of really nice people. Just had several really lovely encounters at Fed Ex and the grocery and pharmacy. Maybe the species really is worth saving.

I’ve been listening to Goats Head Soup tonight. Haven’t listened to it in quite a while. I’m a Stones fanboy (well, I’m a rock and roll fanboy in general), so I was thinking about how it was considered at the time to be a disappointment. I honestly believe the main problem was that the most obvious single was named “Doo Doo Doo Doo” when they just should have called it “Heartbreaker” and had done with it. Anyway, it’s always tricky, trying to leave albums long enough to be able to hear them afresh, but this was pretty easy — it had literally been years. I have more respect for the record than I did before the re-listen. Not one of their very best, but still with a lot to recommend it.

(It’s been that kind of a night. As I was driving earlier tonight I was listening with attention to George Harrison’s really entertaining guitar work on “What Goes On”, a much-ignored (as much as a Beatles song can be) Ringo vehicle from Rubber Soul. It’s only real distinction is that it’s the only Lennon-McCartney-Starkey credit. Anyway, I was so glad I finally paid attention to the guitar. Okay, fanboy out.)

I didn’t know about this, but it will now wind up in one of my books. Dang, I love this a lot.

Watching the struggles in places like Montgomery and Birmingham was a big (and very influential) part of my childhood. We can learn and we can move on, or we can try to stay in the past, which only means we @$%# up the present.

Mike is one of my very favorite-est artists, and he and his wife Christine are also really cool people.

The perfect beginning to my Friday. Thanks, Jay!

This could be you. The world we live in is no joke.
