And it took this long for Welcome to the Jungle to get into the running?

And you want to watch it all the way to the end.

If I didn't absolutely deplore Garrison Keillor before, I do now.

Default some ethnic participation...

I wonder how long we would wait before making a tribute to the Australian participation to small wars… Any ways, hell is belled

And because I could not come without an ethnic input, I propose tout le bonheure du monde: all the happiness of the world…

"We wish you all the happiness of the world, for today and tomorrow,
May someone give a hand,
May your road avoid the bombs,
And lead you to green gardens…"

To be listened under fire with a margarita…

We have to include some hip-hop and remix- speaks to grievance, real or imagined.

I always had a soft spot for Dire Straits' "Brothers in Arms," personally. Iron Maiden's "Journeyman" also has some interesting undertones.

I should be back in NC in the next three weeks. After I get settled in, I gotta figure out how to can and preserve my salsa. After that, you'll get a suprise in the mail .

As for the chips, you'll have to visit my left-wing hippie brothers at Whole Foods. My favorite chips are their homemade whole-wheat brand .

That sh*t is good.

My next venture is to master collard greens, lamb, and gaucomole. Individually of course .

Minced lamb and rice, wrapped up in boiled collard greens is great. Much better than grape leaves.

Since you're in the area, take a trip up to Mendocino (The Russians are Coming! The Russians are Coming!), there's very good collard greens growing wild for the picking along the coastline at the clifftops just across from the little old downtown strip.
