Wrapup: I’ve got a new Think Again column called “Ted Kennedy, inSubstance” which deals with the personalistic, rather than substantivecoverage of the senator’s life and career, as well as some of those thatdid. That’s here.
Also, I’ve got a new Moment column called “Hiding Truths from theGoyim–and Ourselves,” here. I see they start sorta similarly…
Now here’s the man:
“I found out my downfall, from nineteen and thirty/I’m tellin’ allof my friends, I’m not fattenin’ no more frogs for snakes.”
Weekly WWOZ Pick To Click: “Boogie Disease” (Doc Ross, TheHarmonica Boss)–Four years on, and it still fights to be what it always was,God bless it, and I still love New Orleans.
Part The First: He’s tanned! He’s rested! He’s ready! (OK, he’salso now an ex-con.) One of my favorite politicians is back, beeyotches!
Part The Second: Always nice to hear from this blight again. If I’d found a doctor that gave me the bullshit medical excusethat kept my ass out of Vietnam, I’d like this system, too.
Part The Third: My lord, this reached the Fourth Level Of Suckitude in near record time. And Tucker (Show Killer) Carlson calling Matt Taibbi a “phony”? Tucker Carlson?This Tucker Carlson? The mind, she reels.
Part The Fourth: I think I speak for the entire class when I say,”Don’t let us stop you, honeybun.”
Part The Fifth: And you thought it was impossible simultaneously tothink with your dick and talk out of your ass.
Part The Last: Sam’s coming home this year. And, listen, boyos. No taking the last 10 minutes off the way you did last year.
