How many times am
I supposed to stay up till the wee small hours in order to "witness history being made"? Give this exhausted old man
a freakin' break, okay?
Especially if the "history" being made
is the elevation of an asshat lunatic to Leader of the Free World™️...
|"So, why did you stay up, then?"|
For the same reason that people slow down when they drive by a traffic accident...
morbid fascination...I'm not proud of it, but there it is...
Ding Dong the Skank is Dead
political demise of black-eyed skank Hillary Clinton.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer wicked witch.

So call the FBI...oh, wait...
Upon Further "Further Review"
From the pen of Henry Payne, whose editorial cartoons you should read often, as I do.
Until Next Time...The great thing about having eclectic taste in music is that I can always find something that suits my mood no matter what it might be. Today, for instance, blues-rock hero Kenny Wayne Shepherd has just the thing to express what I'm feeling...
Kenny's debut album, Ledbetter Heights, was released in 1995 when he was just 18 years old. It topped the Billboard Blues Albums chart
for 20 weeks, and was certified platinum by RIAA, unusual for
a blues artist then as now.
I was glad to see him follow up his initial success with an even better album in 1997. Trouble Is... also topped the Billboard Blues Albums chart and earned platinum RIAA certification, but this time around Kenny crossed over to appeal to more rock-oriented radio audiences.
Trouble Is... placed four singles in the Billboard Mainstream Rock Top 10, including two No. 1 hits. One of them, "Blue On Black," even cracked the Billboard Hot 100 (No. 78).
My personal favorite from the album was the fourth single release, a cover of Bob Dylan's "Everything Is Broken." Dylan's lyrics and Kenny's strong playing are a perfect combination for me today as I try to cope.
